Renderings of two of the three towers to be erected at downtown Chicago’s Wolf Point have been released.

Curbed Chicago shares the design by architects at Pelli Clarke Pelli, which is reportedly taller and slimmer from previous designs that have been released.

The Chicago Architecture Blog saw some Art Deco semblances in the firm's design, albeit in a taller, all-glass version.

Not much information has been released about this new tower in the Wolf Point project, a grand undertaking being constructed in the eponymous confluence of the three Chicago river branches.

According to Curbed Chicago, the new design may be taller than the previously planned 900 feet. If it approaches anywhere around the 1,000 foot mark, it could break into the city’s top-five tallest structures.
