I fucking love this project so much. I hate that demolition of the existing building will not occur at best until some time late next year. This project is a very long way off.

Gorgeous building, however.

Yeah, it definitely RULES!

But I can't get excited until I at least get some sort of idea what the timeline/financing issue with this project is

So would I.
The location is more desirable than that of the Fordham Spire.

Whoever's in charge of this project, let me say "Thank you," for using glass instead of exposed cast-in-place concrete.

I really hope we've turned the corner on painted concrete towers. And if we do get more of them, please make them more attractive. I know concrete is a valuable building material, but please combine practicality with aesthetics, and maybe a little bit of imagination. (see Bertram Goldberg - a genius!)

This building is beautiful. Commence construction!

I was just driving northbound on Michigan Ave. today from the South Loop and I was trying to imagine this tower standing 850' on the horizon and as I was approaching the Chicago River, I just can't imagine the impact this tower will have in that area. It will stand majestically with the Hancock Building in the background.

Haha, tell me about. I wish Omaha could get even 2 of these projects. I mean we're happy w/ a new 32 story condo building and that's short in Chicago. Just take a floor off every new condo building going up in Chicago and ship it over here and we'll have a new tallest. You guys deserve it though and I'll be living over there soon enough

Oh, and Omaha rocks by the way. You should check it out sometime

Yeah, it's up and coming in the tech industry which is pretty cool.

Spy, you'd be suprised how little he gives his own money away to Omaha. I wish he would build a new corporate headquaters in DT, but he only has between 100 and 200 employees. However, I'm working on my own little project for downtown and you guys will be hearing about it I'm sure.

At least we're still building tall skyscrapers in this country. Better here (Chicago) than in China, right?
