Great! Is there a schedule for the construction already? I would really like to see this one go up.

This tower probably won't get built, it's being proposed by the former Chicago Spire developer. They couldn't get the Spire done and doubtful they will follow through on this one either. There's a better chance of the Spire getting built, I think...But we will see what happens when the economy gets better.

Alright. It's your first post so I'll be gentle but usually, you're supposed to express your opinion with a slightly better argumented prose than this when you bump a semi-dead thread.
Welcome anyway!

Looks like Shanghai WTC without the hole at the top.

Not a very creative design but still looks nice.

Sad news.. but it was already in the air.
I hope they won't waste the design, could be useful for a future tower

Sad, but not surprised on this one. I don't think it ever had much of a chance, even when the econemy was good.
