Calatrava’s Chicago Spire to be Built
I thought it was always going to be built but I guess selling 30% of the condos means that Calatrava’s Chicago Spire will be built for sure. From the Chicago Tribune: read it here. Apparently this is also going to be the tallest residential structure in the world which fits perfectly into Chicago’s architectural history, both in terms of the stature of the building and the stature of the architect.
At the Chicago Art Blog we can’t wait to see this structure built, especially after the giant yawn that is Trump Tower.
UPDATE: The Chicago Spire’s future is now in question as of October, 2008. Read my the newest post on the spire by clicking here.
