what the hell are you trying to say? Just because I criticized the building I need to grow up? I'm not allowed to check the status because I think it's really ugly? Why don't you be a little more rational

Please no more bashing guys. Get back on topic. Nobody cares whether you think the project is great or ugly looking. If you don't have anything productive to say then don't post in this thread. If you do then it will be locked again by a moderator.

Map of Chicago's big boys.

A 350-400m tower in the "smiling area" would be good for the skyline, great views from every angle.

CS is far from looking like a big boy right now, may be more of a girl.

No, seriously now, does anyone know Do buyers of apartments pre-pay the full amount or a percentage. Never really knew how they did it with this tower.

I think they should rename it the Chicago Aspire

If they've only 'sold' (whatever that means, probably just signed contracts) 1/3 of the units then there is no way they can justify progressing, and my guess is that they are losing sales momentum fast.

They really should just grass over it and turn the hole into a fishpond for the 10 years it will take to get this project going again. I'm sure it will be built one day.

No. There was wide speculation that Oprah would be the one to pick up the penthouse, but Ty Warner ended up getting it.
