I think Kelleher mentioned the figure of $1,500/sq ft. for his tower. Somewhat pricier than Trump.

I don't think Kelleher ever said a number, Carley might have though. Either way, we should know more information in a couple days.

From the Chicago Trib in May:

By Susan Diesenhouse
Tribune staff reporter
May 20, 2007
In the fall, Kelleher will begin marketing 1,200 superluxury condominiums with prices of at least $1,400 a square foot, which is more than triple the current average selling price of $400 a square foot. Demand for units priced over $1,350 a square foot, "is thin, uncharted territory," said Gail Lissner, vice president of Appraisal Research Counselors in Chicago.

Appartently Shelbourne will be issuing a press release sometime this week. Hopefully, it will determine a construction date.

I don't think that crane has anything to do with the Spire. Streets and San. must be fixing a broken water main... a 2000 foot water main!

I just spoke to Shelbourne in Chicago. They stated that indeed activity has started!!! They are in final stages of completing the floor plans and that the press release will put all fears to rest. She assured me that the project is well under way.
