Changes coming soon to this view(as is tradition)











You know your boy had to put her on a pedestal:









One day I'll learn to be more succinct with my posts... that day will be when I'm not taking pictures of Vista

Not sure what to think, I guess it didn't turn out terrible but it's not a particularly beautiful supertall either, kinda wish other proposals became reality and not this one.

Fun fact:

These are actually "papers" as cozy said. These are punch lists for each unit that the contractors post in the main area of each unit as they wrap up construction.

I'm very interested in seeing how the symmetry of the final frustrum looks upon completion! Fingers crossed

Right now, what's happening, in my opinion, is that Magellan seems to be using the broader drying-up of capital flows from China into the U.S. as an excuse for why Wanda isn't selling $5 million+ condos in the tower to Chinese buyers. To me, this rings empty, because that was not going to be a thing in Chicago, even if the Chinese authorities' capital flight controls hadn't kicked-in. Again - don't cry. It's okay. The housing market here will survive (and certainly be less volatile) without foreign flight capital propping it up.

That said, it will be very interesting to see how - and how quickly - Magellan and Wanda are going to move this very large unsold inventory of very expensive units.

^ I was thinking the same thing. Blaming the slow sales on a "drying up of Chinese buyers that hardly materialized to begin with always seemed kooky to me.

Crossing my fingers that they cut their losses and woo upwardly mobile professionals with aspirational prices. I would not mind owning a piece of this gem.

Thanks, I did not know that! That's why I like coming here. Yay for learning.

I'm thinking though a similar effect will replace the papers when they put up blinds and sunshades but at least that will be a little more random.
