The pano pic above makes me wonder:
Has there ever been a supertall project planned for somewhere between Trump and Hancok?
It would fit just so well there! Right in the middle of that area.

will be a great little cluster, but I have only bad memories of running up towards the park on the last leg of this years marathon. I was cooked. 85 degrees in October? What's that all about?

I hope that you're joking.... Last time I checked Chicago was the place where the skyscraper was invented. Now back to the thread.

I like the whole development, it works together. Does anyone know how much it cost the developers? Also, what is the public transit like on the south side of the park?
