What's more, Ma explains his inspiration in the video posted on the project's website, rather in-depth too. He wants this building to be specific to Chicago and references the city at every level. So what the hell does something 50 miles away from our state's border have to do with the City of Chicago???
Stop being daft. What do arbitrary State boundaries have to do with anything? The Indiana dunes are way, way, way, way, way more tied into Chicagoland than Indianapolis. That's not even a close one.
