Perhaps this building will begin to set a new precedent
Good point I wonder how much further away from the airport would a 1000 footer be allowed vis a vis downtown..........

Thanks! Nobody seems to know the true height for sure, but it's between 742' to 756'. For reference, the Prudential nearby is 750'. I expect ~3 more floors of pour (maybe 4), plus approximately 2 more floors worth of screen which will block the mechanicals.

It's odd to see the ticky tacky Pru being overshadowed by a sleek glass tower, oddly makes it stick out even more. The whole center should be redeveloped with some towers.
