As the most ambitious building project in half a century continues to plod forward, Kelleher Development has released new renderings of the 150 story Chicago Spire on their sales site. Currently, the caissons have been drilled and utility work progresses slowly while a general contractor is selected for the building's superstructure.
Be sure to explore the Spire's site, not only does it contain some unbelievable panoramic photos of downtown but it also has a showy sales video narrated by Bill Kurtis (whose career has undergone somewhat of a renaissance of late). You'll also notice, as was pointed out by some commentators on Blair Kamin's Tribune blog, that the Trump Tower was left out of the renderings. Dueling developers anyone?
