Apologies for stupid question, I'm not going to go through the complete thread: the current status is already a p p r o v e d ? Means there is no way to stop this? I'm happy if so.

It's approved, yes. But that doesn't mean that construction is inevitable.

Lack of funding could stop it. If the funding scheme falls through, of course it won't be built. But as far as governmental approval goes, it has been approved. The start date is very close so chances are fairly low that this will fall though.

I think it's going to look great with Chicago's skyline. I don't know why everyone gets so nit-picky, to each his own I guess.

The Chicago Spire will be awe inspiring when seen in person, a feeling people have not felt since the mighty Sears Tower was completed in the 1970's.

I hope you are correct Dudly because it looks hokey and cheesy on these renderings.
