Epic 3D Video Rendering Shows The Chicago Spire In All Of Its Glory

New, 18 comments

The Chicago Spire has up to this point lived in rendered still images and the imaginations of Chicagoans. The site of the would-be, potentially-still-could-be spire designed by Santiago Calatrava is currently a hole in the ground. However, this incredible 3D video rendering gives us a better idea of the size, scale and scope of the enormous 2,000 foot skyscraper that could very well one day be the tallest structure in the Western Hemisphere. The one minute video features dramatic music and "camera" angles that are so epic, it almost feels like watching Jurassic Park for the first time.
