I've just seen a rendering of it along with Aqua. The current rendering that we have for it, the former Park Boulevard or whatever is very outdated. Manderin is quite modern looking, but you can still tell that it was designed by SCB. From the documentation that I saw today, Mandarin will be 64 stories and 879' 6" as measured from Stetson.

What the hell. Now I'm a little mad/confused. Someone must be viewing outdated material because there is a huge difference between 1000 ft and 90 floors and 880 ft and only 64 floors.

Victor how many drawings did you see? I noticed some the other day that say what you are saying. However in the same set of drawings they have the height that I posted a couple days ago.

Sounds good, thanks rich. I really hope this one gets built. With 2Pru, AON, Aqua, and Mandarin I think it will create a man made mountain right there. Screw urban cannons, Chicago has an urban mountain.

Crazy Ivan on SSP found this hidden in one of those company/investor PDFs that are typically boring to look through:



The design already seems really modern.

So do I. I feel much more assured that this project is still alive and that its design will be very nice.

That rendering looks quite similar to the pics in post 115 or 117 of the 321 E. Ohio Development (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...&page=6&pp=20). Thoughts?
