Chicago City Council Relaxes Zone to Accept Great Erection


The City Council gave developer Christopher Carley and world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava the zoning change they need to proceed with the $550 million project at 420 E. North Water, opposite Navy Pier.

"He's a great architect. It's really unique and different," Mayor Daley said. "It's a great symbol. We have great skyscrapers here. And they employ a lot of people in construction -- and even afterwards. So, it's great for the city."

Daley has such a great way with words!

It looks like one of those mini-screwdrivers that repairs eyeglasses. That should be handy.

By the way, the only way this story could be funnier is if the site for the tower was on Wacker Drive...
