Yeah, I factored the spire in. I was focusing on the other buildings.

The spire is ridiculous. Should have been built closer to something else tall, like the Hancock or the Sears. It is just so absurdly tall, but that is a good thing.

The spire will eventually have company. I wouldn't be surprised to hear plans for something tall near it before it ends construction.

No, the economy's not shit. Just a post-credit-bubble down period. Most economic indicators are strong.

I think this is my new favorite project in Chicago. It’s simple yet modern and elegant. It should fit in real well with the spire nearby.

The normal residential market isn't going anywhere, but nobody's saying that the economy is shit but you!

I wouldn't have thought so, bear in mind if this were to be taller by however much the 100 floor figure seems sensible, especially if it's mainly hotel/residential but who knows.

If they could raise the height to 1300 to 1500 feet the Waldorf-Astoria would be just breathtaking. Not saying it's anything less than that right now. If it was decided to build it that tall it would compliment the Chicago Spire and the Chicago skyline very well. Who knows they might just only increase the height by 100 feet and just add nine or ten more floors.

Perhaps 1200 ft & 107 floors?
