Woah! The Chicago Spires is one amazing structure to rise in an already amazing skyline! I love the spire-design a lot! Kudos to the designers!

I would guess higher, maybe 20-35 million dollar range. However it all depends on sq feet, and it looks like it might be pretty small up there.

I should imagine it'll be a while yet before you start seeing a core, especially for a project of this size.
Im looking forward to it rising though aswell

Let's go for a record

I'm hearing positive things about the Russia Tower, so lets see if we can start a Petition going and send it to Kelleher and Calatrava to add a 3 meter spire to the top of the Spire, just to steal it's thunder! What do you think?
