And they're not opposed to tearing down modern trailblazers for bigger & better... see the old Union Carbide building in NY. A 1200'+ Thompson Center replacement would make a ton of sense, could be our One Vanderbilt if the transit portion is well executed and the tower is dramatic enough on the skyline.

A marquee supertall there would do wonders in completing the skyline from most key angles. As much as I'd love to see some serious bulk added to the southern end, I'd prefer if the TC site were knocked out of the park with a serious financial backer looking to make a statement (and a Block 37 scenario was avoided).
