The site looks like a giant drain where a giant toilet should be installed lol!

But I hope they build it. It would truly make Chcago's skyline stand out

It would enhance the skyline, no doubt. The problem is the original plans called for 1,500 condos starting at 750k. That's way too many condos at way too high of a price although this was all at the time of the real estate bubble before the depression.
