Wouldnt it be awsume if it was over 20 stories! Maybee even taller than 801 grand!!!
What do you think is the probability of this building being over 20 stories or even taller than 801 grand. I know I will be disapointed if its not tall. Des Moines is ready for a new view of the skyline! (even though they have finished whiteline and are working on westgate.)
I think it would have to be a mixed use building to be over 20 stories, I can't imagine their needs and space requirements necessitating anything more. Mixed use is not unheard of, Aon is a good example, but the trend these days in the insurance world is to focus on core operations and many insurance companies have trimmed their real estate portfolios for just this reason.
I think the question we should ask is: considering the site location, how tall would it need to be to stand out on the skyline? That area is dominated by towers in the 300 foot range, seems it would need to be about 400 to make an impact. It might be best to hope for quality of design than quantity of floors.
