Will this structure qualify for the world's tallest residential building if is taller than 1,450 feet? That's the height of World One in Mumbai (currently under construction). I've read that 85% of the occupiable space must be devoted to residential for that designation. It looks like Nordstrom will take up over 20% of occupiable space, if it occupies 285,000 sq. ft. in a 1.2m sq. ft. building.

I don't think so. That Michael Gross is the shitbag NIMBY who organized against Tower Verre. He lives around west 53rd.

Cool drawing, but I think this might confuse some people waiting for pictures from those attending the meeting.

Very satisfied with 1,423 ft

Will be the tallest in terms of roof height in America.

Flat top combined with the birds eye view suggests it's very boxy. At least it will complement 432 on the other side of the park.

A flat top with this height will definitely be imposing! Imposing isn't always exciting, but I will take it...
