Chicago: Mine the gap design competition

After the collapse of Chicago's real estate market few massive abandoned project left some scars along the Lake Michigan shore. One of the projects was a foundation for a singular 150-story condominium tower designed by an internationally-renowned Spanish architect. The tower was dreamed to become a new icon of the city. However that project is not going to be built anyway.
Now what else can be done with this important site?
That's the challenge of this competition. The participants have to generate ideas about (may be) new intervention to the place with programs proposed by themselves.
This is a single stage design ideas competition open to both students and professionals from any country.
The registration fees for entry is:
For Students: $50
For others: $90
For CAC members: $30
(Payable by credit cards or via PayPal)

The deadline of registration/submission is May 3rd, 2010.
This competition seems to be an interesting chance of brainstorming with a mixture of architecture and urban design issues along with a possibility of proposing The New Icon of Chicago.
