Speaking of height, I decided to go on a mini google quest to try to find the damn height of this building. Well, I found some minutes from the PCPC from July 2009, I guess when this was first proposed? Obviously some things have changed with the building since then, but according to the document:
Mr. Plunkard replied it is 338 ft. tall.
Mr. Gallery replied the plans that were shown to him by Paula Brumbelow
showed the face of the building was 44 ft. and the tower on the top of that was 337 ft.
Those were the plans that he was given to review yesterday.
Mr. Plunkard replied that the 331 includes the base.
Plunkard is/was the architect at the time. Gallery is from the Preservation Alliance.

So in this short span of text there's 3 different heights mentioned. But I can't even recall how many stories it was at the time. At first I thought it was weird if the building was 338ft. and 34 stories -- seems like a real Chicago style cram-in-the-stories thing to do... but then I remembered where the developer is from.
I don't know if this helps anything or makes things more confusing, just thought I'd share.
