Once these buildings are demolished, they're gone. And the difference between 16 floors and 29 floors is visually insignificant (we're not talking about going from 3 floors to 29). Once you get past a certain height (150 feet?), it really doesn't make a visual difference.

For the city, that's an add'l 13 floors of economic activity - construction, transfer taxes, etc. Why is the mayor kvetching about that? Ugh.
It's not the height. It's the pretext. Toll always knew they were going 29 even when they publicized 16 floors. Even people that post here leaked this at a time when Toll was still pretending the tower would be 16 floors. Relatedly, the unity of use stuff as a basis for the greater height. Dubious.
