According to the rendering, and when compared to the last picture in post #262, there are four more floors to go because the tallest setback section has six floors and I only see two.

I'm guessing at least 2.5 million sq. ft., from the aerial shots its as large, if not larger than the Chase tower, (less 12 floors) and that building is 3 million sq. ft.

And it does have massive floor area, at least 50'000 sq. ft. per floor (above the last lower setback)

I think it's a communication tower, ownede by AT&T. Very ugly, but very uncommon. and that gives it a certain uniqueness.
