Vista Tower (formerly known as 375 E. Wacker) is a 101-story, 1,198 ft (365 m) supertall skyscraper under construction in Chicago, Illinois.

Construction started in August 2016 and will finish by the third quarter of 2021. When completed, it will be the tallest skyscraper designed by a woman architect.

Upon completion, Vista Tower will become the city's third-tallest building at 1,198 ft (365 m), passing the Aon Center. It will also be the tallest structure in the world designed by a woman.

It was designed by architect Jeanne Gang. Vista Tower will complement the design of the nearby Aqua skyscraper, also designed by Gang, as the two tallest structures in the world designed by a woman.

Vista Tower will cost nearly $1 billion to construct.

The tower is made up of three connecting towers with differing heights. The tower topped out in April 2019. It will form part of the Lakeshore East development.
