Pre Sale Registration Started

Who know when it will be approved. It has been widely praised in Chicago. It's narrow footpad and slender profile is a huge departure from the bulky box style of Chicago's Sears, AON and Hancock towers. I love it because it puts Trump to shame!

I see pre sale registration in the Chicago Tribune almost every weekend.

Trust me when this thing gets city council approval - you'll know about it.

The Illinois never really had a chance, it was just somebody's crazy vision. Fordham is a serious proposal.

Each scenario was different. Some were just fantasy and concepts, others could have happened if the economy didn't tank at the time (or the Gulf War).

I don't see too much objection to this tower besides financing, which we have some info on. The Mayor said he liked it, the Alderman for the district has been rather neutral but leaning to positive, and SOAR and other NIMBY's have agreed that it's a nice building and better than two squat 30-50 story towers. They even had an positive influence on the building be forcing a redesign of the base.

Yeah, everything looks old with time. But creative shapes and innovations will help preserve that space-age look, unless you think cities are going to become littered with spiral towers, which I don't think will happen due to the huge costs.
