This site could've (should've?) been two taller buildings. Any limitations with the core are self-made and not a valid excuse for the modest height.

I don't believe that is true. There are two view easements owned by the Apparel center that pass across the site and basically force the 3 tower arrangement.

As far as efficiency, this tower has a pretty standard 4 cell core. I couldn't find exact tower dimensions so I counted window bays, assuming a 5' module. The tower comes out to roughly 130' x 220'. The width is pretty standard (most rectangular Loop office buildings are 130 to 140 feet wide. Where it's shorter is at the ends of the core. BMO and UBS for instance are 60 feet longer in the lowrise, and about the same width as Salesforce at the highrise floors.

But those are also unusually massive office footprints. By comparison 150 N. Riverside is 125' x 245' and has only an addition 2000 sf per floor. So basically, this is not among the most efficient office designs, but it's not especially deficient either.

A sky lobby could have have been potentially considered. However the sky lobby elevators would have taken at least a portion of the current high rise core, and a full half of the building's floors would take two elevators to reach. There may be a limit on the number of tenants who are willing to pay higher rents to get higher floors with better views and also take more time getting there.
