Can we move this one to under construction. Skyscraperpage.com and Emporis both show this civic square under construction now

There's a construction permit issued, but it's very, very far from U/C.

Can I ask why this is so far from U/C?

Seems like the ducks are in the row for this one.

Kind of long story involving politics. Lots of links to info in this thread though.

This project is dead with an empty lot that isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Most often, a development requires a developer.

There were Greek tragedies with less drama than this project. Corruption, sabotage, bribery, promises, protest, firings, lawsuits... The star of the show is the hole in the ground living at the feet of city hall and its struggle to survive as a hole in the ground for as long as possible.

Consider we're on page 37, the thread is 9 years old, and there's no project yet. It's worth a read back in this thread, or a search for stories.

I think we should kill this thread. Everything about this so-called project is depressing and disappointing. I vote that we resurrect the thread when we actually see digging...maybe in 2025?

And miss the drama? Without disappointment we wouldn't appreciate the projects that go well.

I'm a little disappointed that here isn't a trail of carmine coming from whoever bumped this thread.

I read the bump last night and thought I'd wake up to bloodshed. Pretty basic responses from everyone. Maybe this project was just that draining?

It's bad enough that I have to look at his fuÁking name splashed across his fuÁking building every time I go to Chicago.

We seem to have laws against that sort of thing in Seattle. Which is probably why he doesn't have a building here.
