GET ME REWRITE: You'll need to have deep pockets to make this view to inspire your own

As you can see from the mid-1960s photo of Marina City, a lot of changes have taken place along the Chicago River since then.

4/1/2019 update, "Chicago's Vista Residence construction", starts here.

$1M to get in on ground floor at Vista, Chicago's newest luxury high-rise.  (Chicago Tribune, 4/11/2018)
While $1 million will be just about enough to squeeze you into one of the cheapest condos on a lower floor of the yet-to-be built, 95-story riverfront Wanda Vista Tower, it won't get you much closer to the stunning views from the building's $17 million penthouse than a ticket for a passing boat tour would.

Doesn't look quite so intimidating from the northern section of Grant Park.

In the meantime....

Chicago lost population for the third year in a row, according to the U.S. Census's annual American Community Survey, released last spring. Among the nation's ten largest cities, only four (Los Angeles, Chicago, San Diego, and San Jose) are shedding black residents. Between 2010 and 2017, Chicago did so at four to ten times the rate of the other three. This is unprecedented for any major American city over the last hundred years.
