I was thinking the same thing. Perhaps JDL believes that putting most of the density near Division will further force the city's hand to back a CTA station there?

I assume the Walter Payton community will raise a fuss, the dropoffs there do create a fair bit of traffic and JDL is proposing its tallest building directly next to the school.
Yes, and directly in line with the tallest tower of OTP... which seems very odd from a view consideration, unless they think the southern views will make up for it?
