Yeah, but then they would have found another place for it.

Btw, I'm not knocking the height on 5th and West. I've been looking forward to this one topping out since it was announced and we got to see the rendering. I don't think all buildings would improve if they were taller, but at 50 stories, this thing would soar.

I was just thinking how I'd be good with 4 or 5 more floors. That would get it close to the crane. Plus, 44 floors just sounds taller than 39 floors psychologically even though it's not a huge difference.

I wonder if the sales office is mentioning the views that would be blocked when the 28 story building is built on Irene's/Frank & Angies lot. Just saying...
