Understood, but utilities can be moved, and in this case it should have happened. If the Cell would face the same direction as Wrigley (NE) then you'd afford much of the upper deck a stunning view of downtown, which would be an attraction in itself. Just look at all those folks snapping shots with the skyline backdrop from the top of the ramp on 35th.

And heck, the UD could use all the help it can get!
