I would have loved to have been there! Had I known that the trip was going to be worth it, I would have made the 3.5 hour or so drive from Appleton to the Cumberland Av CTA station, the 30-40 minute CTA ride from there to the Daley Center and the 30-40 minute walk from there to the site.



Maybe next time!

New York is limited to Manhattan, Chicago isn't. There is enough space for that! Lets get it on!

Get what on? Are you paying attention to BROOKLYN and LONG ISLAND CITY, obviously you don't know much about New York.

Question:

Is 2000ft the maximum height for all structures in the entire US, as imposed by the FAA?

That is the limit they can build to without going through more paperwork and such.

And also the limit they can build without almost certainly failing to receive approval.

How would you know? It's never even been attempted as far as I know.

Seattle's tallest tower, 76 stories Columbia Tower has more than 10 level of parking garaga underground (I think). Pacific Place (downtown shopping mall) has nine level of underground parking garage too. The rest of them are over a hundred feet deep. I'm wondering about Chicago Spire's underground parking garage and basement.
No one knows???
