I'll be interested to see how this progresses, in this economy.

I agree with that.

Why is there such a difference in height between several storeys in the left tower?

I asked that question once before in the Hudson Yards thread but no one has given me any sort of answer so I'll ask again, hoping that someone will be kind enough to enlighten me this time:

What about public transports? This project + Girasole + Hudson Yards + future towers in this area... Please tell me that a new subway line has been considered. Something?!?!
