Quote of the day: Shelbourne Development "certain" Spire will be built

Posted 10/20/2008 by Mark Boyer

Over the weekend, The Sunday Business Post in Ireland reached a spokeswoman from Chicago Spire developer Shelbourne Development Group to discuss the liens that have been filed against Shelbourne by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and Chicago architecture firm Perkins and Will.

While many observers have said that the liens cast doubt on the feasibility of the project, Shelbourn maintains a air of confidence.

‘‘We are certain that the Spire will be built. A huge amount of time and money has been put into the project, and we have achieved above average sales in a very difficult market.”

‘‘Both of the companies in question were on four-year contracts, and they have been paid quite a high percentage of the overall fees they were due. We look forward to moving forward into mediation and arbitration, and hope to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.”

‘‘Once the utilities are complete, the structure can start to rise, but we have no date for that at the moment, due to the situation in the world markets. But the level of sales we have achieved shows that people want this building, and we look forward to moving forward with it once the global economic situation improves.”

I've always liked reassuring comments like that

Spire

It seems that the project is not looking well. If you look back at my posts a few months back you will see that I stated a similar forcast. It would be smart for people to keep an open view of the REAL situation and not hammer people for their views.

a) A third of the building is currently sold and delivery of the building is not til 2012
b) That's your opinion and like *******s, everyone has one and they all stink.
c) 10-20 years? The neighborhood might not be the most vribrant part of the city right now but the Spire could also bring that extra vibrancy.
lets just put it this way. i think its really ugly

.".. we look forward to moving forward with it once the global economic situation improves.”
It looks like that hole will look the same for a long time.

Who is acting like the second grader? Stay out of the thread if you dont like it. We get it, you dont like it. You only have to say it once.
