I'm sure the folks at CTBUH will get their hands on the blueprints eventually and solve the mystery once and for all.

I agree. The highest occupied floor is 876 feet. The top three mechanical floors are at least 50 feet high which would bring this to at least 926 feet.

If want to reclad that building you need to take the whole stucture down. It's all concrete.

There is actually a proposal to reclad it. All they'd have to do is hang glass off the concrete.

I would be alright with it if they just took down that stupid sign. That's the worst part of it.

Yeah, I usually find buildings with such signage to be tacky. The other few ones I really dislike are Metlife, which would have been more decent looking without the signage, as well as the USBank in LA.

Just saying...not really a marvel, just a convenience of script. Although Gehry uses CATscript and uses functions to adjust cost, a project like this could easily be done using Rhino Grasshopper
