Wanda Vista Tower Chicago (formerly known as 375 E. Wacker) is a supertall skyscraper currently under construction for Chicago, Illinois. Upon completion, it will become the city’s third tallest building at 1,186 feet. It will replace the city’s Aqua Tower as the tallest structure in the world designed by a woman (Both Aqua and the Wanda Vista Tower are designed by the same person, Jeanne Gang). The Chicago Plan Commission approved the building on November 19, 2015 in a meeting that also resulted in the approval of the 113 East Roosevelt development. Construction started in August 2016 with expected completion by 2020.
