Somehow this tower reminds me as the proposed so-called Freedom Tower, but with much more elegance.

There seems to be a long way to go before the tower part will rise...

My only problem with this tower is the way it will be eclipsed by the Conde Nast building. From my viewpoint (in Jersey) the excessive height of the anteana on Conde Nast will totally block most of the building and it 2 anteanas.

The tower is to have two spires, the 365.76 meter (1200 foot) one is architectural and the 292.61 meter (960 foot) one is to have a wind turbine that would generate electricity for the building. The southern roof would rise to 287.88 meters (944 feet 6 inches) and the northern roof would rise to 258.47 meters (848 feet). courtesy of Emporis.com
