It looks fantastic. When the top is finished it will be one of the best buildings in the world.

2.1 million square feet of office space?? That's like over 8,000 workers! Is that right? (2.1m/250sf) That's a lot!

I find it interesting that Bank of America is building this NYC tower when they don't even have that many branches in the NYC area (compared to other states). It makes me wonder if they are going to move their headquarters from Charlotte, NC to NYC. If that's the case, wouldn't that make NYC the largest banking center in the world?

When I made my YouTube development video last year covering this project, I initially thought the same thing.

I think I found some material that could lead anyone to conclude that BOA is moving to NYC.

NY Times

Bank of America

If they move then that would be a huge addition to the financial picture:
This company is worth 132 billion in stock: http://finance.google.com/finance?q=NYSE%3ABAC
