  • Plans for the Chicago Spire may be back on. The abandoned super-skyscraper project, which would be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere if built, received several promising development bids this week, including ones from DeBartolo Development, Related Midwest and Garrett Kelleher – the original developer. The site has already been approved for a 150-story, 2.3 million square foot tower slated for luxury condominiums.
