A hole in the city of Chicago is about to get some much needed 'scaping to improve its aesthetics (archived). The 78 foot deep hole on the Chicago Shoreline located between the North and South portions of the city was intended to serve as a foundation for the placement of a 2000 foot tall spire which would stand proudly in the hole as the tallest tower in the City. Economic malaise however lead to an inability to erect the tower so it was largely abandoned for dirt and weedy growth to take over the area surrounding it. The site of the hole sits next to Chicago's Navy pier which prominently juts out into Lake Michigan. This new attention should vastly improve the appearance of the area around Chicago's hole, or at least improve it when viewed from ground level.
