In that image it appears the Illinois is placed at about where Trump Tower is now, in which case, the scaling is horrendously wrong. Illinois should be 4 times the height of Aon, not 3, and the base would be HUGE, probably one of the largest bases in all of Chicago, not that spindly tower suggested. For its proportions, Illinois is quite skinny, but it would still be immensely wide. That rendering vastly underscores how massive this building would be.
