The tower was proposed in the 1960s . It would've been 875 feet tall which is equivalent to 80 floors which would've made it the second tallest tower in the world right after the Eiffel Tower . The city's commission cancelled the tower because they thought it was ugly and not right for the Milwaukee skyline.
The tower would've featured : dolphin shows , underwater whale feeding , a jungle safari , civil war theater , commando fire range , and a German beer garden on the lower 40 floors and a revolving restraunt and coctail lounge , observatory , flying saucer skyride , and a wisconsin display window on the upper floors . This building may not look good , but I like its features ! #downtown #east_wells_street #Eiffel_tower #Milwaukee #observatory #tower
