^ The foundation/footprint is built for a square building. So your hopes of building with setbacks is indeed feasible. Wouldn't a Stern-esque design be beautiful in this location!

there are many ways to carry and transfer load, no? square foundation doesn't necessarily mean it must be a square building

They could build a lot of things with that square foundation.

The old 1000M design would be great like Steely Dan said.


They could also build something like this:


Or even 111W57

Isn't Spires circle core supposed to get a triangle/rectangle tower on top as of right now? Jumping subjects but how many towers have round cores? I think One Museum Park West has one.

Marina city east and west are the two most obvious examples locally.

IMO the original design was ugly too. Cantilevered blocks that tall and all cantilevered in the same direction just don't look good to me.

That building screams San Francisco. Such a great structure.

Are there any plots big enough to build that anymore, because I loved that building.

Maybe 130 Franklin? There are some very large parking garages in the Loop that I would to see replaced with something like this.

Truly, truly an impressive design . Every time I see it I want to storm the Bastille (City Hall) and enquire why this design was not promoted or encouraged to be built somewhere in downtown Chicago. It would add great contrast to the wonderful skyline that now exist. Hopefully 1000M gets restarted soon because it also adds greatly to the skyline especially at that location.

^Um, because developers—not City Hall—decide what it makes most sense for them to build?

A dead proposal from the last construction boom known as 830 S. Michigan Ave.

Yes with a little help or hindrance from City Hall. I don't have time or space to mention all the plans that have been changed or altered by powerful alderman and leadership in high places beginning with Trump Tower. Even though I would add many changes have also been beneficial.1000M itself has gone through a variation of changes as I believe it was first proposed as a Supertall, though I could be wrong. Developers propose what they would like to build, then others determine what you might build.
