A fresh new look emerged for a Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed skyscraper in Chicago’s River North. The Chicago Architecture Blog recently got a hold of an updated rendering of Wolf Point South that depicts a visibly slimmer and taller structure than initially announced.

As Commercial Property Executive previously reported, Wolf Point’s south tower was designed as a 950-foot mixed-use tower that would become Chicago’s eighth tallest building. However, if the tower approaches the 1,000-foot mark, it could land a spot among the city’s top five tallest, according to Curbed Chicago.

Developed by Hines in partnership with the Magellan Development Group, Wolf Point is a billion-dollar masterplan consisting of three high-rise luxury towers to be erected on a historic River North site owned by the Kennedy Family. The massive development at 320-326 N. Orleans St. was designed by New Haven, Ct.-based Pelli Clarke Pelli, best-known for designing the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. The two million-square-foot project will include a mix of residential, office and hotel space. Additionally, the masterplan will incorporate extensive green and public spaces, including a 1,000-foot extension of the Chicago Riverwalk.

Construction broke ground on the first tower, Wolf Point West, in July 2014. The bKL Architecture-designed skyscraper will incorporate 509 luxury residential units on 48 stories and will pursue LEED Silver Certification.
