Okay, megatower, here you go. It took me forever to find these. When I wasnt looking for it, I saw this thing everywhere. Now, of course, Im looking for it and its nowhere to be seen. Anyway...

The first rendering is of the 2,000ft version done by Chicago firm OWP/P pre 9/11. It was scrapped Im guessing because of the terrorist attacks. According to BVictor the SOM version was never released.



This rendering below is the 78 floor version (I believe) by SOM. As you can see, they thought Chicago would simply take anything (they save all of their fantastic designs for the overseas market it seems but thats a different story). That thing was ripped apart by everyone and sent SOM back to the drawing board.




I swear after it was said and done, this tower has gone through six or seven re-designs. The previous designs are floating around somewhere.

There you go.

aw man, that was a cool design, kinda skinny though. Ugly color but still need to remember that was just a render color. Damn terrorists.

would that have really gone through anyway, that tall version if 9/11 didn't occur? It looks vaguely similar to another supertall vision, illinois, kinda anyway. The current U/C building looks better than both.

Compare to other projects, I think this one kinda slow., even both 340 on the park, The Streeter and elses were rising quite faster.

^Well this is a much more complicated project, as you can see by the amount of concrete used and how thick the floors are. I think it will move along much faster now, assuming there are no more delays.

There are a couple guys that participate on this forum (far more on SSP) that actually work on this tower. I believe that theyve mentioned a few hiccups along the way that required a little extra time to be worked out. And even if Im thinking of something else, which Im pretty sure Im not, then delays of any size on projects of this size are bound to happen.
