Wow, these two are beautiful. Imagine if they were 200m or taller. It's too bad that no one is willing to do that. 30 Park Place is a step in that direction, but not quite there.

I forgot it was happening. They're making the upper floors office space, parts of the NYPD are supposed to move in from HQ

... I think it looks uglier now.
