They did. It was in the video posted on here where the developers spoke with the community. The man in charge of the slideshow and taking questions said that the design the public has seen is not the final iteration of the tower and was essentially a mock up that was pretty close to the final design.

I wouldn't hold my breath for this tower to get slimmer. If anything they'll likely to go in the opposite direction trying to compensate for the lost height/revenue.

I tend to agree. As long as Millennium is building the tower on spec , economics are going to tend toward fatter not more slender.

The only way we might see a more slender, iconic tower is if Millennium lands a corporate HQ anchor tenant who wants naming rights, and is willing to pay a premium for a more iconic building. And that has to happen really quickly to have any impact on the design!
