Rockstar architect and hometown heavyweight Jeanne Gang has been recommissioned by the Aqua developer for a new project. The tower will be the latest entry to Magellan's 28 acre Lakeshore East development, which has currently has nine sites available according to Crain's. The announcement of the new project comes just weeks after the developer sold the last remaining unit in the award winning Aqua (good timing). Noting their mutually beneficial relationship, Magellan hopes that Gang's magic will produce another landmark building that will have future residents climbing over one another for a space in the new tower. Details on whether the project will consist of condos or rental apartments is unknown, although initial plans do include a hotel. More concrete plans are expected to be revealed in six months.
