overall, this tower is pretty well designed, has good interaction with the street, and the way the developers worked with the neighborhood is a stellar example of civic-minded discussion. BUT, I just can't get over the idea of how silly it will look to have the second tallest building in the city off by itself, miles from the CBD. I know a lot of people in this forum get an erection whenever they see "917 feet height", but does anyone else feel this way?

overall though, I'm pretty "meh" on the whole area, so I don't care too stongly. It adds residents.
