I think you are thinking of the right one, but remember that the old one had an absolutely atrocious podium (this one is not bad all things considered), a shit load of parking (like 2500 spaces or something ridiculous), and completely lagrangian, banal, architecture. Also, it appears that this one appears not to include plans to destroy that awesome 1960's structure on the NE corner of the intersection.
I'd be willing to bet that the density of this project isn't all that much lower since this tower looks taller and wider than even the tallest of the towers they were proposing before.
