Golub's proposed skyscraper, adjacent to the Tribune tower in the Loop.

The developer that built the tallest building in Oak Park is back in the news, but this time in Chicago for a proposal to build the second-tallest structure in that city.

Golub & Co. got a mixed reaction from residents at a public meeting for its plan for a 1,422-foot high-rise adjacent to Tribune Tower, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The article by Blair Kamin and Ryan Ori likens the look of the tower to “the top of Batman’s mask.”

This is just the beginning stage for the public review process, so the jury’s still out on whether the proposal makes sense. The upside, however, is it would replace Trump Tower as the second largest building in the city.

Golub & Co. developed the Vantage tower at 150 Forest Ave. in Oak Park.
