Point taken about the height and look, but the buildings that follow will have an easier time with unique designs because of what they did.

Not saying that it has to be a really unique or special design. I'm saying that it needs to go tall to really stand out as the signature tower, the tower that is unarguably and visually LA's tallest. It should be a nice design as well, but it really should be LA's skyscraper icon, apart from all of the others.
