I doubt it, since a couple pages back in an article quote: "...his daring plan to finance and start building the 1,200-unit tower before selling a single condominium."

If you are truly interested in buying a unit, @Properties is the local realtor. A clue found on their website (www.atproperties.com): "The sales effort will launch in September 2007 with a global marketing campaign, and the Chicago sales center will be located in the NBC Tower, which overlooks The Chicago Spire site."

Yeah that one with the hole looks sort of goofy. Not the spire. That one is fine.
