No surprises here. Approval was such a lock that's probably why Shelbourne could confidently proceed with getting ready to start construction as if it was already approved. Hence they are starting in just a couple weeks.

This is such amazing news for us Chicagoan's! I can imagine the ammount of coverage this building is going to have during it's construction. LOL it will be like Burj Dubai's Thead.

The only thing that sucks is there is no observation deck for the public, right?

Yeah, quite frequently they add these huge spires just to jack up the height.
