Billings of those Heights would violate FAA rules. The height limit is 2000ft! Not 610m. See my previous post.

This thread is becoming more rosy than ever before. Whereas, ChicagoSpire is yet on the way to commence with the main construction. This building is going to be one of the world wonders.

It will definately be USA wonder since it will be the tallest thing as long as the height limit remains the same. Has 2,000ft height limit been put into place since 9/11 or has it been that since ever?

a 610m skyscraper is not really a world-wonder today , with or without a twist. but it will be definitely an icon for the whole world for me

It don't think so, seems like a normal digger to me. This digger in the hole digs were it has to dig between all the caissons and moves the dirtto a central location were the other one outside the hole gets it out of the hole.

After they dig all the way down how deep will the hole be?

Has anyone got photo of formwork for the concrete rings in the core perimeter? I never seen any.

It predates 9-11 and is designed to prevent aircraft from colliding with very tall buildings. The 2000 foot limit, however, is by no means implacable. The law sets forth a "rebuttable presumption against structures over 2,000 feet above ground level." As the term "rebuttable" suggests, this presumption can, though not very easily, be overcome.

true, it can. But I'd be surprised to see a developer spend the extra money and time to get it done.I suspect we wont see something over 2,000 feet in the US for quite sometime. Or I could be completely wrong.

FYI - I have posted my old Chicago Spire KMZ model for viewing on Google Earth. I am working to update the model to the final design, so I thought I would at least share the KMZ file for my old model. Please Enjoy!
