There's a real obvious contrast in that photo, the grey foundation in the middle of nothingness. Means there's still hope.

When Chicago gets the Olympic in 2016 , this Tower would probably be built there already,
that's what I feel !

oh god, in ArchRecord, apparently Calatrava along with everyone else is suing for just millions of dollars on this project... I think Calatrava has the most at like 11.3 million. Something else was mentioned about this being a prime example of starting construction without having all the loans finalized. Guh

I was wondering about this....was this a rare instance where the building was started without all funding finalized?
