Rafael Viñoly Architects has presented plans for a two-tower residential project in Chicago's South Loop neighborhood. The phased Crescent Heights development hopes to be home to Chicago's 6th tallest building, rising 829-feet on the south end of Grant Park. If approved, the project would be completed in three phases; the first realizing a 76-story, 792-unit apartment building on the eastern portion of the site.

The development's second phase aims to construct a slightly taller, matching 648-unit condo building just west of the first tower. Both would be connected by a podium that features 125,000-square-feet of retail space. In the project's third phase, Crescent Heights plans to develop a 100-unit townhouse community and park on the site's eastern border.

It's "not just an architectural idea, but an urban design idea," said Rafael Viñoly, according to Curbed.
