     When Jeff Gast and I did our "tower blitz" back in 2002 word was someone was wanting to buy the tower,which sits along a bike trail,and turn it into an ice cream/refreshment store,using the third story as an observation area. I'm not aware that this has happened,if the tower was destroyed or what.
