You just mentioned all of my favorite cancelled buildings...

Especially the Waldorf Astoria Chicago, Burj Al Alam, and Chicago Spire

Wow...the Burj al alam is one pretty building. What a shame. I would kill for a crown like that in Seattle's skyline. WOW.

It's too bad for Signature Tower in Nashville, I loved the Neo Art Deco style... Any chance we might see it resurrected (perhaps somewhere else)?

(Though I know there's a very similar one U/C in Jakarta, but this style is just too American to let Asia do it all...)

Here is an art deco tower for NYC which I think you would like. Best thing is, it still can be completed because like 140 meters of it were actually built with the structure being built to bear the full intended height of it. It's the Metlife North Tower:

I am very well aware of this former project, but thank you anyway.

Too bad it was never considered to reschedule this.

7 South Dearborn - Chicago







I still haven't given up complete hope on the Chicago Spire, there was an article last year saying it wasn't completely dead, and another this year saying the same thing.

Are you serious?
Build it in a place that has no skyline like Phoenix and maybe we'll talk.

In fact, Phoenix is the no.1 place in the world where I would like to see this building

I'd definately go for the Chicago Spire, it is a shame it is not going to be built.

The Chicago firm for it said that they were still trying to put something together. But don't expect anything to happen, unless Kelleher somehow gets rich enough to build it again.

I don't want to get your hopes up, the chances of it being built are slim to none.
