i'd presume there's some sort of vortex that takes everything if you get too close - anyone planning to take pictures in future should invest in a camera with a good zoom function..

Once upon a time in a land far far away...Bank agrees on Cherrywood offices, the fairy tale did not have a happy ending.

There are two large holes in the ground at that site along with three empty office buildings, 2 of which have never had tenants, most of the others do not have full occupancy.

It's official!
The Dail cement truck was not a protest at all!
Just an enterprising cement supplier offering to fill in that huge hole we all now own in Chicago!
Now THAT's what I call a sales pitch!

Foreclosure threatens proposed tallest US tower
(AP) – Oct 11, 2010

CHICAGO — Plans to build the tallest tower in the nation are in the balance after a lender filed a foreclosure lawsuit against the Chicago Spire's developer.

Crain's Chicago Business is reporting that Anglo Irish Bank Corp. filed the $77 million lawsuit against Irish real estate developer Garrett Kelleher this month. The lawsuit alleges that Kelleher's Shelbourne Development Ltd. has defaulted on loans that matured a year ago.

Anglo Irish is expected to take possession of the 2.2-acre site overlooking Lake Michigan. The Irish government took over the bank last year.
