Surprisingly, there is no reference in this forum to Calatrava towers in Valencia.


Calatrava's tendence to autocopiate is obvious. Should I open a thread? It´s 308 m

Calatrava forever! After the roof of the Olympic Stadium in Athens, he produces a new work of art!

Not only that, but also the Milwaukee (WI) Art Museum addition from a few years ago. Exquisite!

I love the building but can you imagine walking out of the townhouses and having this as your neighbor. The western leg look incredibly close to the lot line.

and something else should be built there.

^ Nah, I kind of like those townhomes--designed by Booth Hansen I believe.

I'd rather just tear down Dearborn Park instead

Hell, you can leave Dearborn Park there - I'd settle for the continuation of the streets through it. I was walking along South Clark yesterday to the Target... All that's seperating 9th Street from Clark is a little cast-iron fence, a hedge, and a brick wall, with a few feet of grass in there somewhere.

Calatrava’s Chicago Spire wins approval

Calatrava’s Chicago Spire wins approval

The Chicago Spire, a 2000-foot tall twisting tower designed by Santiago Calatrava, has received approval from the City of Chicago Planning Commission. The approved plan features several improvements over earlier schemes. These include a four-storey glass lobby, an underground parking garage for residents, and a one-acre landscaped public plaza. Construction is to begin spring 2007 with completion anticipated in 2010.

Consider the Chicago Spire as beig apart of the new Chicago skyline!

so what is the etiquitte here? trump certainly doesn't have to put a picture of chicago spire, still speculative and coming on line, if possible, after trump tower is up in its promotional material.

but if and when chgo spire goes up, trump (and waterview) will be there on the skyline; shouldn't they be in the promo shots?

I dug a little deeper into secondary data from Wikipedia.org and realized that the Chicago Plan Commission approved the final plans of the Chicago Spire around the 19th of April 2007. [30][9][35] Now if Chicago's zoning committee approves the tower on 26 April 2007, the final vote will go before the Chicago City Council on 9 May 2007, the last step in the political approval process.

Either way this baby is being built, with construction starting within the next couple of months.
