The Chicago Spire Global Sales Begin with Unprecedented Success
Dublin Exhibition Extended Due to Exceptional Interest

“Our sales team has been busy writing contracts every day. There is simply nothing like The Chicago Spire anywhere else in the world, and the privilege to live in a residence of its significance is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

"Due to this unprecedented level of interest, the exhibition has been extended for two weeks as sales will continue in Dublin through February 9."

Take with a grain of salt. That's a press release straight from Shelbourn with no actual contract/sales numbers given, not an unbiased article from an outside party. (But I certainly hope they're writing contracts every day!)

Thanks for all the updates, weather or no weather. To bad we can't see the progress anymore as good as before. At least they're not doing nothing because of the snow!

Nice recap of the past couple months. It's sweet to watch the same angle of the site and see the site change.

Too bad you can't get a higher vantage point to see into the hole more.
(Also, that hole is way bigger than those picture give it credit for. There was a pic of a guy standing next to the hole, and he was like a fly compared to the size of the damn thing. Really is outstanding how small it looks compared to reality.)

I also think that sales coming from abroad, especially say Europe will be quite robust considering the current strength of the Euro versus US dollar. Someone from Europe could be purchasing a unit in the Spire for literally nearly half the price an American would. Tell you the truth I don't mind! This project is not a Chicago project, but an international project!

with the current dollar-low it will be very attracitve for europeans, to invest in real estate like that.

Especially as there is no building like that on the whole european continent....
