Since Jeanne Gang‘s supertall Vista tower first appeared in 2014, numerous design alterations have taken place. However, the project has maintained its original form: a series of simple stacked volumes inspired by a frustum—a naturally-occurring crystal formation that resembles a pyramid with its top cut off. As the $950 million project develops, luxury interior renderings have been released showcasing some of the spectacular views the Chicago tower will have to offer.

The skyscraper is staggered into three volumes that will reach 46, 70 and 95 stories, the tallest rising to 1,140 feet. As a result, the Vista tower is set to be the city’s third tallest building in the Lakeshore East neighborhood.

California-based interiors firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) are behind the project’s 406 luxury condos, none of which come cheap. A two-story penthouse apartment is may set clients back up to $17.1 million.
