I just can't over how ugly the verizon building is; that just ruins the whole scenery from that angle for me. Any chance that some1 would try to reclad that monstrosity?

I would say about 5 or 6 height jumps left, maybe less, depending on how long the perimeter columns for the remaining set of floors are. The next jump will bring it to floor 100, then 102, then 103, 104, 105, and lastly the parapet that will top it off.

You could show that photo to people and they would probably say that its like 40-50 years old! There are no modern buildings in the back ground at all! The fact that all the th trees etc. are brown give it a kind of old feel to it as well.

They tried, but the plan fell through.
