The Chicago Spire By Santiago Calatrava - David Zhang -
the chicago spire

architect santiago calatrava is currently working on the chicago spire, a massive 600m skyscraper that will 
dominate the chicago skyline when it is complete in 2011. the building will have 150 floors featuring around 1,000 
residences and will be the second tallest building in the world. unlike other tall buildings which are multi-functional 
the chicago spire will be an all residential building. the twisting design was inspired by nature, as most of 
calatrava’s work is. particular influence was drawn from spiralling snail shells. each floor is rotated 2.44 degrees 
from the one below, totallaing 360 degrees. sustainably speaking the building is planned to receive a gold LEED 
rating. the residences in a building of this monumental stature are definetly not cheap, prices range from 750,000 
to 40 million USD.

but the latest official news is santiago calatrava's chicago spire will not be built. the tower which was to spiral up to
2000 feet,included 1,200 apartments and was to be situated on the shoreline of the city's lake michigan.

the anglo irish bank is seizing control of the stalled chicago spire’s site from shelbourne development.

the spire was originally announced in 2006 following the acquisition of the land at 400 lake shore drive
in chicago by shelbourne's executive chairman, garrett kelleher. the structure was to have 124 storeys, 
plus an antenna that would take it above the chicago's sears tower and the CN tower in toronto, canada
to be the largest freestanding structure in the western hemisphere.

construction began in 2007, but there has been no activity on the site for some two years, with foundation
construction suspended as pre-sales dried up following the collapse of lehman bros in september 2008.
