What is happening to the circle windows? The renderings on page 5 of this thread show the circles on the north side of the site remaining, while the rest of the wall, including the southern half of the circles, is covered in ivy. I agree though, I would like to see them all removed.

I think they are required to ventilate exhaust and deal with air pressure changes from the rail. Not positive though

The big difference being that Torre Mayor is a Mexican icon in terms of architecture. In Chicago, a 730 foot skyscraper will go largely unnoticed.
