That's actually a good idea. Because in all those horror movies, when the phone rings and the person on the other end is calling from inside the house......they're always upstairs!!

Hmmmm. We visited Chicago last spring and I have two questions:
Will the apartments have balconies?
Will there be a green space on top?

I can withstand any height, as I once lived on the 38th floor of a high rise in Minneapolis, but what I can't withstand is hermetically sealed windows. With so many of these glass towers, hotels/condo's, you can't even open the window even a crack! That would bring on a panicky dose of claustrophobia for me!

I won't even stay in a hotel today unless I can open up a window!

I'm glad this project was shelved, and as long as Chicago can claim that the tip of the TV antenna's of the Willis/Sears Tower will be a an inch or 2 higher than the topmost part of the new Freedom Tower in NYC, Chicago can chill out until the next competitor is on the horizon somewhere else!

If our Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas, originally designed to be 2000 feet tall back in the 90's, hadn't been trimmed down to 1149 feet, due to FAA restrictions, then they would have had to design the Spire to go to 2100 feet, for sure! How dare anyone attempt to outdo Chicago for height!!!

As cool as it sounds, I need a garden and a garage to muck around in. I might like to visit though.
