Technically speaking, we already have 450' on Albany due to ground elevation.

Actually, that would put us into NYC's league (and Chicago would be king). Yeah, right.

Gibraltar’s Investor Mission Statement

Gibraltar is committed to achieving $2 billion in annual sales, with net income of $120 million, by 2009, or sooner. To reach this goal, we seek to generate top- and bottom-line growth that averages 20 percent per year.

These goals can be reached by staying true to our vision of:

Becoming a true leader in all of our businesses, with the largest or second-largest market share in each of our operations. We’ll focus on businesses that add the most value and margin, and differentiate us from our competition.
Serving a diverse group of customers and markets to reduce our exposure to any single industry or customer, while focusing our activities on high-growth markets.
Creating the best team in each of our businesses, by fostering an environment where every member of the Gibraltar Team can do his or her best work – and be recognized and rewarded for his or her contributions.

No longer will be tallest outside of NYC in NYS, Syracuse and their fugly tower will take the name with there 640ft, if it gets built. (I don't think it will).

Would Issa add a spire to the top?

Holy ___!

I've never seen a rendering of that thing and now I'm wishing I never did. What is that supposed to be, a giant collection of leaves? For Syracuse's sake, I'm hoping the design is revisited.

Part of a 1.3 million sqf carousel mall expansion. Its a 1,300 room hotel that will be covered by green solar panels.

Don't worry, it most likely wont get built. I don't think that Syracuse or anywhere upstate right now can handle 2.5 million sqf mall while having shops downtown and malls in the suburbs.

IMO, it would look better without those things at the top.

It would look better if it was never built. Possibly one of the ugliest things I've ever seen. How can Syracuse's economy even support that?

.
The Mall expansion part of the project HAS been under construction since March of this year. The original 1.5 million sq foot mall will indeed have in excess of 3 million sq feet once the expansion (currently under construction) is completed. Destiny is a REAL project and it is already happening.

That Destiny rendering looks like it should belong in the Emerald City. I thought I saw Dorthy. Sorry Syracuse, the Wizard of Oz was on TV last night.

Never mind, the top of the tower would have to be changed for the spire to look good.
