I was going to photoshop the building in but then I'd have to deal with setting up a replacement for Photobucket. Here, just look at this picture:

Here's the CBRE listing. WCC is looking to lease out the current building for 24 to 36 months while they work on the design and permitting for a large office tower. There is also a new rendering of the front side of the tower, but it's only a thumbnail.

There is an opportunity to lease a portion of the existing building for 24-36 months while World Class Capital shores up design and permitting on a much larger office tower. We’ll be focused on short term/ swing space occupiers versus long term tenancy at this location.

The existing building is 16,862 SF, divisible to 5,000 SF, with future vertical development potential for over 700,000 SF of Class AAA office.

We’ll be remodeling the existing floor plan to a move-in ready condition with an open floor plan in January. Occupancy can be delivered April/May 2018.

Here's a larger version of the thumbnail rendering I found by going through the web page source code. It's like the one on the sign and is not going to win over any new fans.

It's odd that they used the old design rendering for Windsor on the Lake in the background for the rendering for this. That design for Windsor on the Lake is from as far back as 2007. Windsor on the Lake went through minor design changes that changed its floor count and overall height. Those black rimmed overhangs were omitted from the final design, as were a few of the roof setbacks and balcony designs. They even changed the design of the mechanical roof and those changes aren't even represented in the final building elevations. I had to measure the final height with Google Earth just to get the height.

700,000 square feet is a monster - more than 100,000 square feet bigger than the Frost Bank Tower. With that much parking, though, if they decided to slim up the tower the thing would probably have 20 levels of parking before the elevator dinged at the first office floor.

Well, at least the orientation isn't switched so the long wall was facing north/south. The Fairmont already has a monopoly on massive wall for the north/south view. We need a good east/west wall right around there. Add some details that make it seem slightly less wall-ish. Great. Oh yeah, and add a massive parking garage with little effort to hide it. Perfect.
