I think you misunderstood what I was saying in my post. I was suggesting the lower portion that currently buttress out to the back (west side of the site) with the outdoor space on top of it be moved to the Michgan Ave. side to better continue the street wall scale and move the tower portion to the western portion of the site. This would also allow users of the outdoor rooftop space to have forever protected views of Grant Park and the Lake instead of the tower that will eventually be built in the parking lot on Wabash. What I am suggesting would actually preserve the continuity and scale of the street wall while also offering a better amenity to the users IMO.
