Ty Warner, the Beanie Baby dude turned real estate investor, is buying the 10,000 sf penthouse at the Chicago Spire, which must give some people confidence the project is a go. We don't know the actual purchase price, though they were asking $40 million. That's a lot of Beanie Babies (a phenomenon which I truly never understood). Warner has (intelligently) diversified, buying up a lot of high-end hotels, IIRC.
