Don't quote me on this, but i think the Well's Fargo Tower is just over, or close to 800' tall, the number 859' sticks in my head, but that could be the AON tower.

This proposed tower, with it's parking, retail, and fitness center levels, in a "podium" structure, and 50 floors of condo's above that, this tower could reach 750' easy. However one must note that the Wells Fargo Tower is almost on top of Bunker Hill, (it's street level enterance, is at about, Elev.400' to 420' (above sea level) as the site for the proposed tower is around, Elev. 280' to 300'.)

Still however, this proposal would be a skygrabber, from an unusual part of the Downtown area, and change the dimension of the skyline from almost any view point.

Is there a scheduled release date for the rendering? I really hope its not a run-of-the-mill design. Btw, who's the firm/architect doing the design, if anyone knows?

Great news. Good luck trying to contain yourselves while waiting for a rendering to come out. Believe me, it can be tough.

The Kawada group will seek city entitlements in the coming months, and has hired Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Design as the architect of the Asian-inspired project dubbed "Zen."

Floor to Floor height before 1950; 9' 6" to 11' 0"

Floor to Floor height after 1950; 12' 0" to 14' 0"

Then in the early 1990's certain buildings increased this number again, for the introduction of subflooring to accomadate computer and electronic equipment wiring systems. This raised the floor to floor height to as high as 16' 0" in some cases.

But the standard rule of thumb is, an office building at 50 floors, is 700' tall. (or real damn close, with F to F @ 14' 0".

Residential highrise, 50 floors, is between 500' and 550'. (this is becouse all system's are permanent and not subject to change,) As is not the case with office buidings as interior space is changed to accomadate new tenants.

The standard here is F to F, anywhere from, 9' 0" to 11' 0"

Trivia, One of the first, an largest air conditioning retrofitting's was to the 70 story RCA building in Rockafeller plaza, New York City, in 1950.
