Don't they need that in order to sell the stuff stocked in the mini-fridge?

That's the Jack Frye Training Center.
It served as TWA's pilot training facility in Kansas City.
Along with classrooms, offices, printing and filming facilities, it also included multiple realistic flight simulators.

I do not know of anyone else that has fought as long and as hard as you are doing. for free? none. Maybe Chastain would be close, but he wasn't exactly successful at it and filed court cases...

It's been several years since the last remodel and I'd love to see a larger building that could hold more aircraft and even ships (The Chicago Science and Industry Museum has a submarine).

Re: Oak Tower

I was around downtown when that work was being done too.
Workers were swarming the "Telephone" building on scaffolding with hand-held jackhammers.

The Frederick is a great, historic renovation that was done with a gentle touch.
The unique character was nicely retained.
They also did a great job of sourcing cool and simple furnishings.
