It's a lot when there's a market correction and the banks decide they need to retrench. They're selling those units against OBP, Vista, Wolf Point South, One Chicago Square, and whatever else in smaller buildings in that same submarket.

If it was no problem then we'd have supertalls springing up at the rate of a few per year every year, and we don't.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov
