Crain's Chicago Business and the Wall Street Journal are both reporting that the concrete carcass on Wacker may actually finally be completed.  Megadeveloper Related Midwest has acquired Waterview, originally intended to combine a Shangri-La hotel with upscale condo's.  The structure, which got as far as 27 unfinished floors before the  money ran out in 2008, will be downsized from 90 stories to 65 - no condo's, but 500 luxury apartments, with construction to begin next year.

Any one know if there's a local architect or interior designer involved?

Are there any editor's to correct the reference to "condo's?"

This is a blog. There are no editors. You're lucky there's punctuation.
