I don't know which I like better. I love cutting-edge designs and the Spire is the definition of cutting edge! I love the the Freedom Towers because not only is it a beautiful desing, there are 3 or 4 other new super-tall skyscrapers, waterfall pits, a few feet away it will be such an amazing office park. Either way, Chicagoans and New Yorkers are lucky for such amazing structures.

Here are better photos of Spire and Freedom Tower



It's hard to find more photos of the Spire

I think I liked the Freedom Tower more before seeing the movie. My vote goes for the Spire hands down. All that glass is gonna look great after its finished.
THX, There are more Promo Videos I will dig up for later, but as of now I got to find the best.

peeewweeee! that spire looks nothing like the chi-town i know! they are gettin way to technical with this new technology. these new skyscrapers all over the world dont look half as good as the sears tower or the chrysler building. i do have to go with the freedom tower on this because of its meaning aswell. plus, it doesnt look that bad!

Normally I'm Mr. Chicago everything, but I think that the freedom tower is an overall better design. I think we should trade and New york can get the spire and call it freedom tower. Freedom Tower's design looks like it was built for Chicago!

I like the Chicago Spire as it is a more daring design. If you look at the other types of skyscrapers going up around the world like in Shagnhai this one competes.

Chicago Spire. It is so beautiful. The Freedom Tower is dull.

Delayed reaction, but I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so...
