For it's almost unreal that this project is going through without ANY units being sold yet.

I really hope the financing does not run out, or they suddenly decide to downscale the building

They are driving steel sheeting so that they can begin the excavation of the core. They are also working on the slurry wall along Lake Shore Drive

Something like this - but in a circle, the form rotates.

(300 N LaSalle, Chicago )



( 155 N Wacker, Chicago )

They have about 5 sheets in the ground already (or more. I saw the site briefly from LSD this past afternoon)

NYC in population 3 x 1. For USA CBDs, I believe: 1) Midtown (Manhattan NYC); 2) Loop (Chicago); 3) Lower Manhattan/Financial District (NYC).

But Chicago's CBD is also undergoing a big new influx of residential units, like the Chicago Spire.

I highly doubt it seeing how Waterview has recently taken off and that CS won't start rising until at least next spring. A more intruiging match for me is 300 N. Lasalle vs. Waterview (Will Waterview be taller when 300 N. Lasalle is topped out?). It'll be fun rooting for the underdog, Waterview.

I would say it's a pretty good possibility given the disparity between floorplate size. At the same time, Waterview is constantly slowed down by it's cramped quarters.

With the 9000 times it's been said, it's amazing how many people still don't know about the 2000' limit in the U.S.

I dont think anything will happen in 5-10 years, but in 10-20 there is a very good possibility that it will change but only far away from major airports.
