So fordham spire made massive.
Nice concept though but I'd hardly call it a proposal. A vision is right I think.

I love that project too, and it's great they're going to build so many skyscrapers in Milano!!!

How's it not real?


Scaling is wrong though

The height isn't that ridiculous to make it a fantasy, nor is it listed as one on Emporis. There is a website for it: http://www.fordhamcospire.com

From our "inside" information, there are nearly 1000 people on the waiting list for this tower, well over the 200-250 units planned.

The main hurdles that need to be passed are finalizing the design, approval from the city (the Mayor said he was excited about it), keeping SOAR from opposing it (could be kept quiet through donations to a nearby park, etc.) and financing. And then finding a 5+ Star hotel that isn't already in or planning to be in Chicago.

The Donald was also planning to have the NY Intl Finance Ctr that was to be 990 m and 200 floors, and it would have been completed around 2010.

Mixed use, but mainly residential.

Milan┤s Towers: Nice, specially the one in the middle

Noida Tower (India): Please, I┤m sure you can do it better than that

London Bridge Tower: No, thanks
