Plans for Tallest Building Since the Sears Tower
YoChicago reports the [tag-self]construction[/tag-self] of the tallest concrete building in the U.S. That’s the 92 story [tag-tec]Trump International Hotel & Tower[/tag-tec] in River North. It will be completed sometime in 2009.
You may still have time to get in on the March 7th dinner where a presentation will be given on the structural engineering for the project. It will be an expensive presentation at $55 per plate.
Weather Prediction for March
March is supposed to be warmer than average for the Northeast and Northwest. That’s good news since the heating expenses of a cold January and February. There will be less demand for heating which can help get the wholesale price down for crude oil.
However, WSI Corp., a private forecaster, also predicts it will be cooler in certain parts of the South.

Hopefully this needed trend will catch on quickly with other retailers. Are you listening [tag-ice]Home Depot[/tag-ice]?
