I think this bears repeating...It would be interesting to learn what Hunt Construction was told when they signed a $247 million deal to construct the tower this past March. According to all the press regarding the deal with Hunt, as of late March through May (2014), was that the building was a go in its original form.
What has happened since? A budget will not blow this far out of whack (purportedly) in roughly three-to-four months. The Manchester clan has been working on this project since the beginning of this decade.
I have not heard back from my contacts as of yet. As soon as I do, I let you know.
I beginning to believe that this may be a trolling job...to get a rise out of us on this thread?!? The available information just doesn't seem to add up. But, it could be true. We shall see.
