I believe they're supposed to start in the next couple months. I wouldn't worry just yet about this one until some actual negative news comes out, but we'll see.

I was just thinking about how the Chinese do weird stuff with their floors. And if you subtract all floors with a 4 (i included 41-43, and 45-49) and floor 13, you get 65 floors. Isn't that the new floor count, or one of them? Anyway, just a thought.

at some estates in Hong Kong u will not even find a Tower4 , Block4, ect.

four = sei in cantonese (i forgot about the tonation)
dead = sei too...
but i'm not sure if they leave every floor which includes the 4 ...

on the other side i seriously have no clue why some ppl see 13 as a bad number...

sorry for being off topic

Sorry to everyone if this has been answered before, but, to BorisMolotov, why are there five stars on the Chicago flag in your avatar? Olympics, maybe?

Nothing new, but an update nevertheless. Hopefully we'll see some activity soon.

^ No news isn't necessarily bad news, I would say. I'm guessing they're simply focusing on marketing/sales at this time. Why do any drilling at this point?

I am guessing you are right. Alderman Burke suggested that a 5th star be added to the flag if we get the Olympics.

Are they marketing? I hadn't heard this.

The sales center is in the base of Pru 1, and has been for months. Many of the windows on the Randolph sidewalk have advertisements, but I doubt they're getting tons of foot traffic from them.

Several months now. I'm not sure where they are with sales yet, I think somebody once reported 40% a while back, but I can't remember

Post #284 on this thread, which was written on April 25th, quoted an article saying that they were just a hair over 50%.

It is so close to being built... awesome! still, I love the glassy design of the building, but too bad, this building's view from the rest of Chicago might be hidden in the skyline!

Yea, I think this and 311 S.Wacker will be fighting for the distinction of tall and overlooked due their neighbors positioning when done.

311 is certainly not overlooked, especially to all the people on the South Side who can gaze at its brightly-lit crown.

here here! although yeah, for density alone i'd love to see this become a reality. between aqua, this and the proposed architectonica tower, this part of the city will be a feast of height and diversity.
