This one doesn't have a drawing on SSP, but it's a simple shape so I think I could manage to draw a silhouette of it that would be sufficiently accurate, so yes, I will include it in my NYC diagram once it reaches ground level

This Derek could be right!

@Skyscraper Museum

Looks like we are getting a height increase!

Height: 783 ft
Floors: 63
G.F.A: 546,000 sq ft.

The exhibit is pretty new and I'm positive the exhibition got their info directly from the developer.

Totally awesome news right there! At nearly 800' this will make a huge impact given the location.

we keep forgetting the bridge across the west side highway which is part of the deal with the city.

Overall this tower is incredibly cool looking structure. I like the new tower more then the previous version. Plus increase in height is always welcoming news!

I wonder if this will be 780 to the roof or to the highest occupied floor. If the latter, it will be more like 875'.
