Not yet. You'll know it's under construction because the thread title will say so.

Looks like they attached that big thing that will rotate the cassions onto the crane. Although it could be an optical allusion.

Chicago Spire-Brilliant!

I am proud that Chicago is building a treasure of modern design. In my opinion, the other tall skyscrapers in Chicago are, well, not treasures. Sure, they are great, but they are products of a time when design was in a dry spell. Designers and engineers are becoming more concerned about the aesthetic value of the towers they construct,while also keeping safety and functionality in mind. The Chicago Spire is brilliant. That's just my two cents.
