would be interesting to see if KPF has updated the design or if they're still onboard... will be quite a stylistic shift from the cocaine highball aesthetic of 311...

Well, that's certainly one way to read the article...

I'd be happy for them to get the parking lot at 321 S. Wacker developed with this plan, but hope the 301 lot stays undeveloped until something more ambitious is feasible.

I'm generally not a height fanatic, much happier to see all the liminal areas of downtown developed over the past ten years, but 301 S. Wacker is one site that's begging for something taller than 311 S. Wacker for the composition of the skyline.

HAH, good point. The whole premise of the piece is headwinds facing tall office towers for the foreseeable future.

It does mention a higher floor count, if that's the case the design has changed / someone is still interested in building this.

Could be poor reporting though.
