I've missed this thread and am glad it's back. Looking forward to Harry's first pictures, and maybe a couple from the last month, if he has any.

Your answer is absolutely incorrect. An small down stroke is required at the time of signing. Then a larger portion is due later depending on the contract stipulations.

Cheer up, Chicago Spire fans! " The credit crisis " will, eventually, thaw (no pun intended) and Chicago will get it's Spire. Meanwhile, just, enjoy what You've got!
