You know this is a perfect example in comparing this lot size to the lot size at 4th @ Colorado. I don't know the exact measurements obviously but it's a safe bet to say both lots roughly have the same area and space. Why can't Brandywine dig down the garage, (pushing aside the fact that they probably don't want to spend the money to do so), and just have the office portion, with a few design tweaks? I wouldn't even care if the building was shorter as long as the lot fronting Congress has a nice tall highrise...or at least taller than the Brandywine building.

Anywho I've been anxiously awaiting for 5th & West to rise up. Looks like it's going to be a few more months before it does. The garage portion will take awhile but once that's done the tower itself should rise fast.
