This tower will be Ross's personal trophy building. He will live at the very top, so maybe he wanted to be closer to the clouds.
Yes, I guess this is true. Still, we are talking about a 250 foot difference...that's still pretty significant. Would I like a taller North tower? Yeah, but this isn't too bad...
