Just my mind going...

And I'm being totally greedy, but I'd like to see one more setback section tier of 14-16 stories and it be a hotel. Why not make it truly iconic? I heard that word several times at the meeting. Chicago doesn't have a 300-room hotel in the sky. The developers may have maxed out all their FAR, but I think with the changes in zoning made last year, you can $purchase$ additional FAR. Also I don't know if they're done Adopt-a-Landmark, but the Washington Blvd bridge houses could use some major TLC.

A few images regarding logistics.





Here you see the vertical fins in the renderings are in fact a serrated facade.
