Jeanne Gang Does It Again

Jeanne Gang is said to be the world’s best living female architect. When in Chicago this time, Ruth & I saw her newest design at 363 East Wacker Drive. It is sensational!

I am a big fan of Chicago’s Aqua, which Jeanne Gang also designed. The Saint Regis Chicago is almost directly in front of it. I wrote about Aqua way back in 2016 on April 30. I also saw her completed building across the street from Forest Park in St. Louis and wrote about it under the title “100 Kingshighway”. That was on February 28, 2020.

Jeanne Gang continues to move forward innovatively. The St. Regis on Chicago’s Lakefront was completed in 2020. It is 1,198 feet tall, cost a billion dollars, is already Chicago’s 3rd tallest building, and is, so far, the tallest building in the world designed by a woman. Its 3 towers of different heights are called stems. It overlooks the Chicago River very near its entrance to Lake Michigan. This 101 story building is pure architectural elegance.

So far Chicago’s St. Regis is only residential suites handled by Magellan Realty. Call 312 493 8200 for more information. This chain of deluxe resorts and hotels now contains 53 locations that are part of Mariott International. Jeanne Gang’s design already offers residential suites up to the 97th floor, and a hotel will be added in April or May of 2022.


About roads-rus

Since the beginning, I've had to avoid writing about the downside of travel in order to sell more than 100 articles. Just because something negative happened doesn't mean your trip was ruined. But tell that to publishers who are into 5-star cruise and tropical beach fantasies. I want to tell what happened on my way to the beach, and it may not have been all that pleasant. My number one rule of the road's disaster is tomorrow's great story. My travel experiences have appeared in about twenty magazines and newspapers. I've been in all 50 states more than once and more than 50 countries. Ruth and I love to travel internationally--Japan, Canada, China, Argentina, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, etc. Within the next 2 years we will have visited all of the European countries. But our favorite destination is Australia. Ruth and I have been there 9 times. I've written a book about Australia's Outback, ALONE NEAR ALICE, which is available through both Amazon & Barnes & Noble. My first fictional work, MOVING FORWARD, GETTING NOWHERE, has recently been posted on Amazon. It's a contemporary, hopefully funny re-telling of The Odyssey. View all posts by roads-rus
