I really would like to see this project start, but I'm sure it has a lot of logistical issues, more than I can probably think of.
Apparently S&G would be adding a street-level skydeck entrance at Jackson.

They really play up the contrasts between the two towers in the model - that must've been part of the pitch.
BTW, big piece of the tower off and blocking the street at the bottom of that first pic
