Mayor Richard J. Daley said Tuesday he had suggested the quarter-mile pier at the end of Grand Avenue to the city planning department. The suggestion was forwarded to the' Chicago Sky Tower Corp., a private firm considering building such a tower at a cost of some $12 million.

The Sky Tower company said four other sites are under study for its proposed tower, which is to include restaurants, observation deck and a theater.
