It is a future development in LakeShore East rumored to be 950-1075 ft. That is just a filler.

I would have to agree with the above poster that the skyline is a beast! It's also incredibly beautiful, unlike many major world skylines. I love the way it arches and has an almost bridge-like shape to it. Beautiful!

Not now, but when renders and solid information is released there will be. Should be within a couple months.

I was referring to the design of the tower in that animation as being a filler.
