The Chicago Spire was a proposed supertall skyscraper to be built along Lake Michigan in Chicago, Illinois.  It’s construction was stunted due to the “Great Recession” that started in 2008.  The project was officially declared dead in the water in 2010 after developers were unable to secure the funds.  After nearly 5 years of planning, the Chicago Spire will remain a 30 meter (100 ft) wide hole in the ground, instead of the towering 610 meter (2,000 ft) structure it could have been.
