Gensler creates a new supertall skyscraper

Gensler, a global design firm, has created a new supertall Skyscraper for the waterfront site in Chicago! Called Gateway Tower, the building would house a mixed-use program, with condos, rental apartments, two hotels and tourist attractions.Gensler creates a new supertall building

The conceptual tower is 610 metres height, a rectilinear tower that bends slightly as it approaches the ground. Gensler created a large, supporting brace splays outward from the lower portion of building towards Lake Michigan. Similar to the iconic John Hancock Center by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in the city, the exterior of the glass tower would feature X-bracing.

Gensler creates a new supertall buildingGensler intended to offer a strong connection to the city, lakefront and Chicago Riverwalk, creating a tower able to capitalise on the city’s tourism dollars.

Gensler creates a new supertall building“Our solution was to create an anti-tower, one that was not designed purely as an object to look at but rather one that is engaging at different scales to the entire city, one that would welcome newcomers as it simultaneously embraces locals,” Gensler principal Brian Vitale told Curbed.Gensler creates a new supertall buildingThe proposal for this building features amenities such as water taxi service, two entries to the Riverwalk and a Skydeck that would offer “unparalleled views and premium experiences including a restaurant and sky garden”, it will also include a funicular that would transport visitors from the ground to mid-level amenities.Gensler creates a new supertall skyscraperWe really hope you liked our article.
