Since many people from Chicago visit this thread, I thought it would be appropriate to post a couple of vids from youtube, you skyscraper lovers may enjoy watching (people not from chicago will also enjoy it!!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfS-Gb6xDV8

Hope they do some vids like this for the Chicago Spire too


P.S Awesome updates Harry, and great renders by I am Hydrogen. Thanks for Sharing

I agree. The Spire needs a few "friends" in that part of Chicago. They would look so good together.

I don't think it will be approved until at least 2009.

That's it - I have to visit Chicago. Always said that when I eventually visit the US it would be New York first , but you've made another tourist of me with these pics

I like to drop the soap too.

I agree that it does need some supporting actors to balance the skyline.

does anyone know where i can get the original full InSpire video by Sony Imageworks? It seems they've cut the video way down, and i was hoping to the first parts of it again.

This has probably been asked 20 times in this thread but I can't find what I'm looking for sifting through the thread. How wide is this tower supposed to be? Can someone draw a line in the picture with the measurement? That would be great.
