The rendering looks awesome but it needs to be little taller.

Don't worry. Manhattan is getting its fair amount of more supertalls soon enough.

Just imagine the impact it would have had if Conde Nast wasnt there.
Considering BoA's glass crown will reach 285m/935ft with its majestic spire reaching 366m/1200ft, me thinks that it will certainly overcome your concerns about that with Conde Nast's roof reaching only 227m/745ft & it's antenna 348m/1141ft.

The BOA Tower and Conde Nast could co-exist and play off each other well. Both with their sleek, modern, futuristic (in a sense) facades could provide for some nice reflections not to mention a great amount of density. They're both pretty bulky, especially the BOA.

In a sense the Conde Nast can be credited with influencing BOA's soaring spire.

Not to get off track, but I'm a big fan of Conde Nast, it is something ahead of our time (at least when it was built) and is the epitome of the new Times Square.

I can see a little bit in those pics, but has the Verizon building started receiving it's new glass facade? It will be BoFA's blue glass brother across the street!
