Teamed with FiField smdp Eyes Taller Building in West Loop
“This is a city of skyscrapers,” Mr. Fifield said. “We’re saying, ‘Look, we’ve got a large site with up to 1.4 million square feet of zoning on it, so let’s play to our strength.’ ”
The new plan calls for 40 stories and 800,000 square feet of office space. Depending on the reaction from tenants and capital markets, he also could look to tack on a 300-room hotel and 450 apartments above the office space, which would raise it to 75 stories, Mr. Fifield said.
