Yep, Waterview would be right in front of Sears from that angle, to the right of the building with the pointed roof (R.R.Donnelly)

After Mr. Levinson posted his tidbit of info, I decided to do a bit of digging

This is what I've found out... Remember, this info is subject to change.

-It appears that a submission will be made to the city for the maximum roof height to be at 1,200'

-The maximum ornamental roof height is to be at 1265'. This would account for screen wall at top of building where two warped surfaces come close together.

-These measurements are being taken from the hotel entrance which will be officially listed at 0'.

I hope that this helps.

Also of note, this would make this taller than the Empire State Building if it's constructed to this height. Excluding the anteanna of course.

Ah, beautiful. We might not have the most buildings, but our buildings are really tall by any standard. Waldorf=Astoria taller than ESB? Bring it on.
