Ireland. Lake Michigan Chicago Spire global sales begin in Dublin

Tuesday, 05 February 2008

The Chicago Spire global sales campaign is currently underway, following a tremendously successful launch in Dublin when more than 1,000 people visited a four-day exhibition. Due to this unprecedented level of interest, the exhibition has been extended for two weeks as sales will continue in Dublin through February 9. Designed by Santiago Calatrava, The Chicago Spire is an iconic residential building located on the shores of Lake Michigan.

“The initial response from the global community has been overwhelming,” said Dominic Grace, Head of Savills Residential Development and leader of the global sales campaign. “Our sales team has been busy writing contracts every day. There is simply nothing like The Chicago Spire anywhere else in the world, and the privilege to live in a residence of its significance is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

The global marketing drive began with a glamorous celebration in Dublin’s Fitzwilliam Square attended by an invited audience of more than 500 people, including Hollywood stars Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson. After its Dublin stop, the exhibition tour will visit Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Shanghai before continuing on to a series of other destinations in Asia, Europe and South Africa.

When complete in 2011, The Chicago Spire will be home to 1,194 individual residences and a range of amenities that will rival any in the world, including temperature-controlled wine lockers and humidors, therapeutic spa, world-class fitness facilities, business center and library, among many others.

Construction of The Chicago Spire began in June 2007. Completion and occupancy are expected Q4 2011. At 2,000 feet, The Chicago Spire will be the world's tallest residential building.
