I'm not so sure. It depends on whether you consider the terms "illustrations" and renderings/"pictures" synonamous. The article suggests that illustrations were used--which, quite frankly, could mean anything from deciphering plan views to using massing demonstrations with other similarly sized adjacent buildings in a different city--while a rendering of this quality is probably pretty rare and not as meticulously demonstrated. Furthermore, if the renderings did exist, why wouldn't the Journal-Sentinel shown them? All they could muster is the same two buildings in separate renderings, which implied to me that said "illustrations" were unclear.
