I actually like the General Growth building, but this proposal seems like a great replacement. I like the riverwalk, too, maybe it'll encourage the buildings north of Randolph to open up their private ones. I wonder if there's any way they could be connected through/around the bridgehouses. I actually had totally forgotten that there was a tiny patch of riverwalk (or riverside patios, basically) north of Randolph. I wonder if they'll keep the riverwalk at street level or at the lower level. Looks like street level in the image, but not exactly perfectly clear.

I wonder where they measure the height from? Lower Wacker? Upper Wacker? River level? This does have a really tall lobby.
