The impoprtant paragraph starts at the bottom of the first page and goes to the second, now drop this. It's the rule, is it a law? No. It's just a pronouncement and one which to our knowledge has not been challenged or requested to be waived. Could you get around it if you wanted to? maybe, maybe not. Will they change it someday? maybe, maybe not. The point is, they don't want anything built over 2,000 feet, end of story.
I don't want to take away too much time from the subject of this thread but the 2,000 feet limit has been discussed on a great many threads in this forum and it's generally recognized that the FAA sets restrictions on the height of buildings. Skyscrapers are built in big cities which obviously means there's going to be airports. When I flew into La Guardia I couldn't believe how close the plane was to all of the skyscrapers of Manhattan but there really isn't much choice due to the location of that airport. It's really just a safety concern and I think it's a legitimate one.

They have resumed cladding work. A seventh row of glass on floor 26 is now on the South side of the East facade.

They never stopped. They have been doing the north west corner of the building the last 3 weeks.

Legally speaking the FAA does not have the legal authority to set such restrictions. If you read the entire discussion from the last few pages, there is no federal law, code, rule, or regulation from any federal authority including the FAA and FCC concerning a maximum building height. The only document that anyone has been able to produce to evidence the 2000 foot idea comes from an FCC statement of policy from a house resolution in 1965 (the resolution did not pass into law). It mentioned antennae heights in reference to the ability to provide broadcast services, not building or aviation safety.

While this might be generally thought of as a guideline, it is in no way shape or form a rule of law that is at all enforceable. Builders might have problems getting local approval from local authorities, but there is nothing at the federal level that restricts building above 2000 feet. There are only notice requirements to the FAA. Not general restrictions, only notice that such antennae exist. (there are restrictions with in 20,000 feet of an airport)

If you read the law. The actual black letter law and the case law that is 100% binding. The United States Supreme Court has held that height restrictions are a matter of State Police Power.

I am not talking about feelings. I am talking about the actual law of the United States of America.

Before everyone starts posting the new glass doesn't match in colour...

It's just cleaner.... It has been wrapped up on a truck while the rest has been hanging (unwashed) on the side of a building surrounded by dirty construction and bad weather.
