"This building will be a landmark, I predict," said Ald. Burton Natarus (42nd).

What a bold prediction.

Looks great. Those large graphics show clearly how the roads will be worked. Awfully lot to squeeze in that small spot.

Chicago Spire, Sydney Tower Comparison.


(click to enlarge)

Nearly twice the height. LOL

Sorry for the poor quality. How do I download the diagrams off SSP? How do I get the Burj Dubai and Chicago Spire diagrams to fit on to my Monitor? LOL

Wow, the mass difference is the most impressive difference in my book.
BTW what is the tallest building in Sydney currently?

After seeing those drawings from Bvic, this building has never looked more perfect to me.

Sydney Tower is the tallest structure in Sydney at 309 metres. World Tower (residential) is the tallest building at only 230 metres. Sydney has a height limit for buildings in the CBD (downtown) of Sydney of 235 metres.

Tallest in the US. The 2nd tallest in the Las Vegas Tower, 1888' I believe.

Chicago Spire will be the tallest residential building in the world.

I thought Burj Dubai will be the tallest residential building in the world since it got more than 700 units since it is mixed uses building?

Burj has a hotel though, so it is not purely residential like this is.
