Chicago takes the steam from all other Midwestern cities! What are we poor Ohioans to do??

They would have to shut down the highway at times to build this one.

Chicago still has a metro population approaching 10 Million people my friend -- approaching "Mega-city" status. We still have one of the strongest economies in the world.... plus (at the risk of sounding cocky) the history, architecture, culture, arts, theatre, shopping, fine dining and general majesty of Chicago are hard to beat.

Crime is not out of control at all. According to FBI crime statistics Chicago is not even in the top 20 for crime. Everything you hear in the media is not true my friend

Chicago is doing just fine and it is not going anywhere so don't hold your breath wishing that we go away lest you suffocate and die because we are here to stay.

Yes, I took the troll bait

Frequenter of Chicago as an Ohioan here. Chicago downtown area is just amazing and out of this world. Summer time is the best time to appreciate the architecture and sights of this city.

Chicago is that one city that makes people not completely blow off the Midwest haha.

Agreed. Summers are the best. Something about the "energy" of the place, the down to earth, fun, yet cultured nature of the people, all the fests and happenings that just make for a special experience. Chicago is particularly ALIVE in summer.

That said, there are many great cities in the world -- I never said Chicago is the best (people are entitled to have different opinions) but it is truly a special place. As someone who has traveled the world extensively, I always find myself appreciating what Chicago has to offer every time I return home from a trip away. It is a great mix of EVERYTHING -- from beaches, to museums, to sports, to high tech, to nightlife, the great food, etc -- everything. It puts it all together.

By the way, good luck with your Ohio teams this year -- Ohio is always a hotbed of sports of all kinds.

You are right... Chicago is not New York. Thats the beauty of the place. Chicago is Chicago. There is no other place like it.

3 things: 1) Chicago INVENTED the first skyscraper (bet you didn't know that did you Cocory) -- so if any is city is trying to be like the other, it is the opposite - NY is trying to be like Chicago - Haa - the irony.... 2) Chicago is like 10 times cleaner than NY - people that have been here are always amazed at how "clean" Chicago is, and... 3) Chicago has beaches naturally surrounding our downtown -- quite simply there is no other city like it with the possible exception of Miami but Miami is not as urban, dense and tall as Chicago -- so it is truly a unique experience - shopping/working/dining in supertalls and literally "walking" to the beach after work.

There is so much more that I could write about the differences between the two cities but suffice it say that Chicago is Chicago --
and proud of it. We have no aspirations to be anything other than what we are.

Carry on my friend... if you think it is appropriate to come on a page dedicated to a Chicago project and try to tear down our city then quite frankly I have no more time to waste on you... have a good day and continue to drink your hateraide my friend

You sound like you have issues buddy. Better get yourself to a doctor, you're about to go postal on Chicago. Stick to New York or whatever it is you prefer and stop shitting on Chicago or any other city around here. Ain't nobody got time for that garbage.

Cocory you post on the dedicated Milwaukee section of this website often, and I swear it seems like every other post you make is a subtle troll to get people emotionally charged.

In the meantime, to all newcomers, this project is a vision/design exercise. While totally feasible on the nearly nonexistent off chance an investor decided to invest in it, this isn't serious and IMHO not worthy of a thread until developers/investors are interested.

The coincidence is that the proposed location of the megatall is exactly the area where the Chicago Spire would be erected. But the 1WTC in New York also went through the visionary phase before being erected, such as Freedom Tower also in the same area with another design. (And it gained a thread here in that time almost 11 years ago).

Someone doesn't understand what trolling is. Sharing my opinion isn't what you call a troll but purposely aggravating people is a troll. So show me what I Troll about please.!

Isn't that what the Visions category is for? Sure this isn't going to rise here, but it's a fun prompt to discuss what could and should rise at the former Spire site.
