For Chicago's cultural assets, it needs a walkable, semi-charming neighborhood close to the CBD that residents and visiting folks alike will be able to enjoy as a reprieve from the throng of towers downtown. The West Loop's history makes it one of the obvious candidates, and the requisite zoning overlay has been put into place, so there's no point in violating it now with a 50-story tower.

And Lakeview will never become a mid-rise neighborhood, for myriad reasons too numerous to spell out.
