City soliciting proposals for downtown site

The city is moving forward with soliciting plans to build a mixed-use "signature tower," and a location has now been cited as a surface parking lot at the northwest corner of Holmes and Jefferson. The project could be coupled with a parking garage (one of the "stimulus" garages?) if the winning developer chooses to do so. This is a very underdeveloped part of downtown, and being relatively far away from residential areas shouldn't create too much controversy.

What would a signature tower for Huntsville be? I've seen renderings of the signature tower that is planned to be in Nashville and it looks very cool and outrageously tall. Would the Huntsville tower be that much higher than the other buildings in Huntsville (Amsouth, Embassy, that one tall white one)?
