The fun never ends inside Chicago’s upended corncobs, especially if you consider bald-faced lies by your condominium association entertaining. Last week, I brought you the tale of bone-headed new rules proposed by Marina City’s controversial condo board. This week, the board is trying to squeeze money out of film and TV crews–merely for shooting images of the Chicago skyline.
There are two ways to brand and position a world-famous residential tower: the right way; and the way downtown Chicago’s Marina City condo board is planning to go about it. Four words for Marina Citizens: don’t ask; don’t tell. Really?
You knew it had to happen. After a year of growing discontent with the current notorious state of affairs at Marina City, late last month a group of Marina City resident-owners filed suit against the condominium association for the twin 60-story corncobs, alleging the current voting proxy system in use by the condo board effectively undermines the intent of the Illinois Condominium Property Act.
