I hope this has been wind-tunnel tested. I don’t think such a building would survive in Chicago’s wind.

As an additional thought, the reason would be the wind would possibly cause this to sway and the building could break apart. The TAcoma Narrows bridge also known as ‘galloping Girdy’ feel victim to oscillating or swaying in the breeze that the bridge broke apart. Strutures can have a natural vibration pattern that if you hit it, the structure can vibrate more intensly. Wind can do this and also soldiers might break step on bridges to not match the natural vibration pattern of the bridge. Physics.
