they must be joking.

But they want a more slender and taller tower. Good thinking.

It was 670 feet when it was CORRECTLY posted here. The screen wall at the top has since been lowered some, leaving it just below the 200M/650 feet cutoff for this forum. Hardly something to cause a big scene and LOLOLOLOL about, but it seems you are the Development Forums height nazi.

Yeah, and the developer said that he wanted to add height, but that he didn't have the money right now, so if he gets some extra money, it could happen.

True, but that is only if he somehow gets more money. The funny thing is that people near the building, want it to be taller! Gotta love Chicago YIMBY's

So is the 435 N. Park land bounded to the North by Illinois? Or is there a buffer parcel in there? Curious if anything has ever been proposed there...

Here's the site: http://i.imgur.com/hlZEZ.png

Radioactive Dirt Halts Construction on Residential Tower and Hotel



Quote:
Construction has stopped on the residential skyscraper and hotel being built at 435 North Park Drive in the Streeterville neighborhood. It’s another victim of the radioactive legacy of the Lindsay Light Company.

Just weeks ago we took pictures of heavy machinery getting the site ready for construction. But like many construction projects in the Streeterville, Gold Coast, and Loop neighborhoods, extra caution must be taken during site prep. That’s because the area was once contaminated with 40,000 tons of radioactive thorium-232.

From 1904 until 1936, Lindsay Light Company manufactured mantles for gas lights in the area. If you’re not familiar with mantles, they’re kind of like mesh bags impregnated with chemicals that are placed inside the glass globe of a light fixture. When heated by the gas flame, they give off additional light.

The problem is that Lindsay didn’t do a very good job of handling the thorium, maybe because back then people didn’t know how dangerous it is. At Lindsay’s facility at 316 East Illinois Street raw ore was processed into liquid thorium nitrate. The waste product was tailings containing thorium-232, which was dumped into the ground.

That is a tough clean up. It probably went deep into the ground after so many years.

If it wasn't for that sky restaurant, this tower look so boring for Chicago, especially considering its neighbors.
