The October 1, 2008 edition of The Wall Street Journal said that the building foundation was complete and the above ground construction would not continue until the markets recover.
I thus declare this project ON HOLD.

On Hold.

Just checked all the recent pictures. The machinery hasn't even moved which pretty much shows this.

Please keep the discussion civil and on topic please. I don't mind people speculating about the future of the project as long as people are not insulting each other.

While I agree there has been a lot of stupid posts there's also been a lot of good discussion. Discussions about how the caissons were installed and how the parking area will be built top down have been very interesting. These are things that are not done on a regular basis and were interesting to many viewers. We've also seen pictures of prototype wall sections etc.

We don't need to lock the thread, the children who post stupid posts just need to go elsewhere to play!

So sad... but thanks HarryC for the massive amount of daily updates. The Spire's neighbourhood looks really nice anyway!

I don't think this is the type of "on hold" that Waterview is on though. It seems that utility work is ongoing, for example.

not a good news

Quote:
The credit crunch is also affecting commercial construction. The developer of the Chicago Spire, a new downtown skyscraper slated for completion in 2012, said work on the building will slow because it has been tougher than expected to raise financing for the project. The foundation is complete, but construction above ground will begin only when the credit turmoil subsidies, said Shelbourne Development Group Inc.
