Don't know, chances are unknown, and the time for a decision is unclear

There's really nothing too concrete (no pun?) about this tower that we quite know of. Someone said that inside City Hall they were happy about the tower and others say that the sales center has recieved many calls from foreigners who are willing to buy now.

It looks nothing like the Turning Torso

It's the wrong colour, wrong shape, the podium is different. Infact the only simularity appears to be that it twists.

It would be a great addition to the Chicago skyline.

Heheh . If you were referring to the Fordham Spire then I suppose you do have a point it does bare some resembilance. That seems to happen alot of with Calatrava's designs...I can't make up my mind if I like it or not.

But I took you as referring to the picture that Chad posted, I had just asked what it was as it's not the Fordham Spire :p so I assumed you were, then it really looks nothing like it.

Looks better up close, the spire does not look so great at all.

You know, I was bitching in the begining of this thread how I didn't like this building, and how it didn't go at all with the Chicago skyline.

But I gotta admit, the more I look at those renders, the more I see what a beautiful addition it would be. Especially at night.

I'm a Calatrava convert

The spire is much too big for it, it just makes it look a bit ridiculous.
