Can someone show me on a map where they are going to be or at least tell me the street address so I can look it up on Google Earth. I really don't know where it will fit into the skyline. Thx.

I would be so pleased if the Gumby Towers join the Corncob Towers.

I could be wrong, but I want to say that their sales office is in the old building that will be demolished. If that is the case, my guess is that they wouldn't demolish it until they start putting units for the 2nd tower out on the market and sell a good chunk of those, as well.

No, you're definitely right. Hopefully they'll get this thing going by mid summer or so.

^ Likely, you are. However, I commend you for reminding me about Gumby for he hasn't been apart of my awareness for quite some time.

I hope they do file a lawsuit if she continues this nonsense to appease some newly formed group.

AUUGGH!!!!

I hate those NIMBY's. I think that Jeff Ayersman guy is the same as that ******* 'Jeffery' who's been posting at the Yo

Haithcock needs to go more than ever now. Look at how desperate and pathetic she's become

I am curious about Fioretti's position on X/O. Has anyone met him and asked him about that? This is the second most important development in this ward, next to park michigan, in my opinion. I cant believe this idiot Haithcock has flip flopped on both after originally claiming support. What a *****! I am guessing that she is trying to paint Fioretti as the pro-development candidate and embrace the NIMBYs to try to get as many votes from their ilk as possible. Regardless of Fioretti's support for either project, it is clear that it would be disastrous to have Haithcock remain in her post, so I can only hope she gets unseated in the run-off.

I'm not worried. Mayor Daley lives in this ward, and I don't see how or why he'd agree with Haithcock on this. Plus, Haithcock may not be alderwoman for long anyway complements of Fioretti in April, so we may be waiting til then, no biggie.
