will this building be complete when the spire is fully cladded, or is there still some interior finishes that are being done? also does anyone know the move in dates for the condos?

I was in Chicago last week for work. I alway enjoy my time in this town, it never fails to impress.

Here are a couple of the many pics I took while there.










This last one is the view from my hotel room, the 20th floor of the Palmer House.

Getting closer and closer to being finished. This could be finished by the end of the month.

It is already in use, I was looking at staying there, but it is ridiculously expensive.

Why aren't they finishing the spire cladding? Before they were saying it's too cold outside to do anything, but here they have a ridiculously warm and nice day in the middle of winter and aren't doing any work.

It won't be quite a celebration I say. What Chicago supertall will we have to talk about in this section?
