Kind of interesting how the new generation of supertalls alternate with the ones from decades ago based on roof height.

Yes...yes.....it is all part of a master plan... hahaha. But that would be bad because no more supertalls would be built.
Oh well....keep them coming.

For you, not for me, especially when the spire is only other 400 feet taller than the financial center in shanghai.

I think this along with the Spire, Trump, and Waterview will create the best riverfront in the world!

It should be mentioned that with the World Cup being played in Brazil in 2014, the chances for Chicago to get the 2016 Olympics is very good. Rio was considered a forerunner in the competition... now that they will have to focus on the World Cup, that leaves Chicago all alone at the top!!

Hotel occupancy levels are already very high, now, with the onset of the Olympics, we will see even more development!!!

Has the City of Chicago accpted the design proposal and the project as a whole yet or is it still under review? By the way fantastic renders Ryan!

As the title indicates, this project is still proposed.
