Skyscrapers 1 to 2 of 2
The Chicago Spire was a supertall skyscraper project at 400 N. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, Illinois that failed financially after beginning construction. When originally proposed as the Fordham Spire in July 2005, the design had 116 stories and would have included a hotel and condominiums and been topped with a broadcast antenna mast. The design was by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, and Chicago developer Christopher T. Carley of the Fordham Company was spearheading the project.
80 South Street was a residential skyscraper proposed for construction in New York City. The building was planned for construction in Lower Manhattan, and designed by renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. However, the project was canceled on April 16, 2008 in the wake of a declining real estate market. The design of the building consisted of 12 four-storey cubes stacked on top of one another, cantilevered off a central concrete column standing above an 8-storey base.
