I like it, all the other ideas are non skyscrapers and this would be the perfect place for a skyscraper so it's hard to like them although the underground theater is pretty badass.

Related did say they had something "architecturally significant" in mind, although I take it these ideas are thought up by random people and have no chance of actually being built.

That building is nice, looks to be around 800' tall. I do prefer the other twin tower design by Related though.

The skyscraper plan is actually 1280' tall.

Doesn't seem like a real proposal but hopefully related surprises us with something nice.

I just hope what is built will use the spent costs of a 1/4 billion foundation to their credit.



If any of those renders are real is look like they would be.

I know, it's the perfect foundation and location for a supertall.

They should aim to pass Sears, since it's been the tallest building for over 40 years... just sayin'

I know this may seem like a stupid question, but is there anything keeping them from building the exact spire as it was intended? This other tower that has been proposed seems like it will essentially serve the same purpose as the spire was to.

Anyways, I am happy to see that there is one good proposal that will presumably take advantage of the foundations that were built for the spire to support a unique building. Almost all of the other proposals were garbage.

Rest in peace to one heck of an ambitious project.

Agreed, this looks gorgeous, better than the spire. If only it was an actual proposed tower. : (
