I only hope the layouts are not like Marina City Apartments.
Perhaps, River City Apartments like layouts might be ok.

If this structure is built finish by now yes it will have, in fact it will have almost all the tallest titles.


Sadly the upcoming Burj Dubai as HWDP mention has a highest roof of up to 768m and highest inhabited floors at 701m.


The LMR alone is already taller than this drill bit monster

Don't bother with SSC if you can't handle the idiots. They are in abundance here. Just use Skyscraperpage. There are multiple people on SSP who are actual construction workers for the projects in Chicago. It is a much more informative and intellectual site. Just a FYI for those getting furious over moronic comments on this and other threads. The only advantage of this forum is it is much more international. SSP is mostly Americans.

Don't be so dreary! But CS is really wonderful. It's a great symbol of our time. Time of changes.

It's not that you said that, it's that it has been said more then a hundred times since it was announced.

You are too captious. Technical details - not the only subject of this forum.
And as to CS - what mechanism for it's steadiness will be used? Pendulum, counterbalance,...?

I just hope the plans aren't- for lack of a better description- ordinary.

See my only complaint about Jeanne Gang's contribution to Aqua was that she just reskinned an already existing floor plan. The facade has no connection to the interior layout.

I know the City made Lowenberg use Gang to dress up the exterior envelope, but the worst thing one could say about Marina City is that the plans aren't very livable if one isn't used to the spaces yet. Conversely, one could also argue that Marina City's floor plans are conceptually consistent with the entire design and as such validate their uniqueness.

Like they said in Spinal Tap, "it's fine line between stupid & clever"....

I really hope there is a synergistic connection between the exterior and interior on Spire.
