Notwithstanding soil tests, I find it hard to believe that this will be built. The Chicago property market is not doing well, and The Donald is having a hard time selling units for $800-$1,000/s.f., which is less than 20% of what comparable units would be snapped up for in NY or London. Units sold out quickly at 15 CPW and the Plaza at $6,000/ s.f. This project is not financially viable. I hope that it's built, but I am highly pessimistic.

We're here to discuss the Chicago Spire, not whether Chicago is an international city. Any more off-topic posts will be deleted, so don't bother.

I would venture to say that one of the reasons Trump is having problems selling out is because people with that much money to spend are waiting for the Spire to start marketing and see if the prices are comparable so they can buy there instead. But then again, perhaps I'm thinking too much like a potential buyer and not enough like a cynic.

I completely agree. If I was in the market for buying a highrise condo, I wouldn't even think of Trumps tower as long as the Spire was coming. (If they were close in price of course)
