No, not yet. I believe they are waiting for the market to become favorable again. Or at least thats what makes sense in my mind. I love this project and I truly believe this one will go but not for another couple years at the least. I could be wrong though.

No. It twists, so the entire structure is completely different and it's shorter so it pairs perfectly with the spire.
Try again.

Well, Roeder is at it again. After he completely missed the ball on the Waterview Tower predicament last week, he now (and without mention of Waterview securing its 300MM financing in his article this Wed.) proceeds to inartfully pontificate about the likelihood that this project will never happen and devotes worthless column space to purported contradictory statements by the developers and how unusual it is there are no complainers about the height of this project. I mean, what an utter lack of journalism here. I used to find Roeder's weekly column an exciting and interesting source for new projects and updates on the status of other ones. Of late, however, the quality of his articles has gone way down and they are frequently retarded with weak opinions and irrelevant rhetoric. Its to the point now where I don't even want to read them anymore. Off to the Trib. now!! Anyway, I sure hope to hell that this gets built as I think this is a fine project and anyone would be a fool to not want this built here.

From what I've heard there's little opposition to this tower, can't imagine it wouldn't be built unless any other reason, the crunch or financing issues being examples.

^ Aren't they building one of those in Chicago too. I'm sure the Hilton's have enough money that they can Trump Tower the world. But I'm sure they'll only be able to build the one we'll see.

Looks like things may be getting underway with this big guy! I'm in love with the design and I really hope all goes well and this baby rises next to the Chicago Spire! Thanks for the shots Harry.
