Then it's not the Chicago Spire anymore! What kind of plan is that, it's all or nothing! There’s plenty of time, why are you in such a big hurry to build something on that plot of land?

No they don't need another midget there - they need the spire as it was envisioned at the beginning. I mean this country has a serious lack of balls lately. Any time anywhere someone is trying to build something out of the ordinary 1000 ft - it is almost impossible. In the meantime China and Dubai are building those towers as a matter of course.

I received an email from the sales staff on sunday 12/14 so something is still going on, unless the forgot to turn off the spam sender

-----


Greetings!

I hope all is well with you! We have not communicated for some time and I just wanted to check back with you regarding your continued level of interest here at the Chicago Spire.

I thought an email would be less intrusive than a call in these busy times but I would love to catch up when you have a few minutes to chat. With the holidays just around the corner and pending travel plans, this seemed to be a great time to explore the possibilities in this pre-holiday lull! I would also love to share the Chicago Spire experience with you here at NBC Tower if that would be at all possible.

Exciting news…

We are experiencing great success here which I wanted to share with you. As you may know, in June 2008 the Chicago Spire was pleased to announce that 30% of our units had sold in under 4 months and on Sept 30th we announced the sale of our 40 million dollar Penthouse! Amazing results in any market.

Please let me know your thoughts and your continued level of interest.

Kind regards,

Pam

I other words, they haven't sold a significant number of units since those old sales numbers were announced.

While the good thing is the sales office appears to still be open which is definitely a good thing since they have to have money to keep it operating. The bad part is it was not a personal all where you could ask questions and there is no work going on! Hopefully this spring will see things start move.

30% of Chicago Spires units sold? That is more than I expected.

Do you realize what you're saying! That would be years in the works lol. There would have to be a completely new design which will take a while, then it will have to go through all of the approval processes AGAIN which will take twice as long lol. You're talking about adding 5 or 6 yrs just to even resume the foundation. This isn't dubai where you can just change plans on a whim, we have very strict rules and approvals for construction.

such 'inconsistencies' in where a skyscraper's thread is placed is a tell-tale sign of the Krgykystanian mafia. Now you can believe me or not, but Im not gonna be able to take them down alone. We need multiple hackers- and we need RPGs. PM me.

The Shanghai tower is listed as site prep, when did it suddenly become under construction? There's is nothing pointing to that Shanghai Tower is under construction, I don't know where you’re getting that from.

I don't know why you re-opened this thread, but is good to listen that the 30% of the building is sold. IMO with this crisis seems difficult to reach the 50%, at least during the first semester of 2009.

Anyway, that 30 is enough to resume the project.

in australia, a unit tower has to be 60% sold before the developers/buildings even think about allowing it to proceed. 30% isnt good. they need more.
