I just realized, if no other city pops up with a higher residential tower, this one will overtake the residential tower in Mumbai, and be the tallest residential tower in the world.

It could end up being 1700 with some sort of crown or spire element. Barnett only said that there would be no gimmicks in regards to the 1550 foot number, and that that would be the highest occupied floor. From what I recall he didn't outright say there wouldn't be some sort of element on top elevating the height. We'll just have to wait and see.

Actually he did say that.

Quote:
“There won’t be a spire or anything like that, the floors will go all the way to the top, or almost to the top, with some mechanicals above,” Mr. Barnett said. “This is not a gimmick.”

so the new info is quite contradictory.

Yup, 7 feet taller if it's 1700 feet, however it should be noted that Pentominium is on the brink of being cancelled.

As to the building being 150 feet taller than the top occupied floor, well we don't know about mech floors and mech equipment. 1WTC is 120 feet taller than the location of its top occupied floor, so 150 feet certainly aren't something that special

Yes this is very normal, and 1WTC is about 100 feet taller than it's highest occupied floor, so this building should have a pretty big occupied space up top, can't wait to see the design!

The only reliable number we have so far is 1550 feet or 472m. The 1700 feet figure is nothing we can surely trust yet.

The man himself said 1550 'almost' to the top - i.e, some mechanical space on top. Why not just expect that it will around that figure? All this hype and everyone here will feel let down. Just count on 1550 and maybe you'll get a decent surprise. All this nonsense of expecting huge height increases is just mental mastur... NYC is not Shenzhen or Tianjin where 600m monsters are becoming the new standard.

Well the 1,550' figure is for the 85th floor (highest occupied floor) according to the DOB filings. Above that there are 3 mechanical floors, which could bring this tower to 1,650ft / 500m. But this is all speculation at this point, so let's just wait till we have some more official info on this subject.

And btw I'm glad New York is not Shenzen or Tianjin. Because here we built when there's actually a demand. No demand - no (residential) tower. No other city in the world is boosting so many supertall residential skyscrapers right now. And those towers are located in an already super dense area and not some huge plaza where you need a cab to get to the closest skyscraper. Even in superdense Hong Kong towers like the ICC are being built on huge plots.

Without a doubt this will be an outstanding feat. Constructing a ~500m tall superskyscraper to adjacent buildings... well you could say they nearly touch each other! Same goes with 432 PA, another 400m+ supertall.

All in all, this is the way skyscrapers are supposed to be built. New York builds this way. And it's the right way.
