yep. I'd rather it still be on hold than be canceled like Waldorf Astoria. This building is sweet.

Nov 11 - less activity than at the Spire site.


Nicer patterns than the old surface lot.

If everyone has not heard, apparently a Dubai based firm is putting its stake in the project, with a different design coming soon.

Spires is not killed yet. It is still alive project for now.

We'll wait for a press release to be sure.

Because the crane is being dismantled, the general consensus is that this project will never be built. Some other incarnation, perhaps, but not "Waterview" as we know it. Therefore, I'm changing the status to Canceled. It's time to move on.

A new thread can be started when/if a successor project is proposed for this site.

?You do notice that there isn't any activity, so why would it be any good? Real genius. Well, guess that's it for this project.

Is there enough infrastructure in place to where this building can be finished? I don't know if Chicago has ever experienced such a large project stalling partway through construction (not incl Spire of course).

I'm wondering how long it'd stay built like this until it's torn down if no one buys it. To leave such a large building sitting empty on the river would be horrible.

If it's auctioned off, it might sell for a pittance, like the Pontiac Dome, and the cost of redeveloping it to whatever height would make sense, even in this market. "Waterview" is gone forever though.
