Great updates here, one of the best of all major projects. I love the shape of the foundation hole, also is there just one core in this build? Is it centrally located?

You can't buy one off the website. You must go to the NBC Tower.

i think that even thought the Chicago Spire looks good in the renders it will look stunning, almost unbelievable when it is completed.

Thanks for the pictures Harryc!

The core looks big for such a slender building. I wonder how wide the diameter of the building will be at the base?
