Just wondering, has there actually been any bad news about this tower so far. ie, things that would make this difficult to get built. To me it seems this has been nothing but a success so far

That diagram actually isn't accurate anymore, sdtj (as of a couple days ago). The Fordham Spire is now quite a bit taller than the Sears Tower, with a roof height of 1,600 feet.

Check it out here:

I was one of the old designs most loyal supporters. But I like the new one even better, in particular the spire. It's perfect!!! I just want to hug it
