I appreciate the fact that many people here want to keep the West Loop as a mid rise neighborhood, since Chicago pretty much lacks in that department, and I don't necessarily disagree with that. However, when it comes to any development near transit, I'm fine with shooting for the moon when it comes to density. It makes sense to build a huge amount of units next to a busy L stop than one a mile or two away whose residents will most likely be auto dependent regardless of how good the bus service is.

And also, regarding WLCO, maybe this will make them think twice before shooting down any and every proposal that comes their way that's higher than 6 stories. A high profile failure or two against developers aught to bring their collective ego down a notch.
