I'll make him feel a bit better, it sits partially on what you used to be an old station.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central...icago_terminal)
Central Station was an intercity passenger terminal in downtown Chicago, Illinois, located at the southern end of Grant Park at Roosevelt Road and Michigan Avenue. Owned by the Illinois Central Railroad, the former terminal also served other companies via trackage rights. The station opened in 1893, replacing the Illinois Central Depot (on the site of the current Millennium Station), and closed in 1972 when Amtrak rerouted the last services to Union Station.

...........The Romanesque structure, designed by Bradford L. Gilbert and built by the Illinois Central Railroad, opened April 17, 1893 to meet the traffic demands of the World's Columbian Exposition. The nine-story building featured a thirteen-story clock tower and also housed the general offices of the railroad. It also boasted the largest train shed in the world at the time, which measured 140 by 610 feet.

I don't think we should expect anything fancy and amazing for it. Just a good well-proportioned residential tower; like the other three.
When can we expect a first render by the way?
And will the next tower be built right after the 'small one' is finished?

I'd like to propose that we change the title to clarify these towers more.

Can we change it to,

CHICAGO | Central Station | 900ft 83 fl Pro | 790ft 73fl Pro | 734ft 65fl Com | 632ft 54fl U/C

I'm not sure if the two taller towers are actually Proposals or Approved, but you get the idea. All in favor?

I agree, it would be less confusing that way!

Agreed, makes much more sense like that! I'm liking how these two are complimenting each other so far in terms of shape and curtain wall.
