Oh my word! most of those height extentions are hideous! I can understand why too, a good piece of architecture should be perfectly formed in such a way that to add anything or take anything away would worsen its quality.

the Elbphilharmonie is nice though. Its clear the architect designing that has actually taken the time to look at the building beneath.

The Bennet Bldg in NYC is probably one of the few exceptions to adding building height when it was orignally a 6 story building when built in 1872, and then given 4 more floors in 1892.

I respected your views, so I expect you do to the same.

Yes it's wierd but there's one building in Makati that has this example like Rufino Building in Makati.

A 41 storie tower was added to the building during the early 90s and was the tallest building in the city during that time.

The Blue Cross building in Chicago which sits right next to 340 on park and the Aon over by Millineum Park will double it's height making it over 800 ft I believe.
Completely attached to New York but completely in love with Chicago.
