The Continental Center is 169 m. So judging from my calculations the final height should be roughly 254.039%·169m.=429.33 m.

Wowowow. If accurate, that would put it clearly above One WTC by roof height (...he says, stating the obvious, but too excited not to.)

... Not to mention that ceiling height will probably be higher for the residential area, or that the tower could include setbacks or that there could be a crown/spire.
This is the only tower besides Nordtsrom for which I have actual height expectations; it could be a skyline changer.

Is there any restriction on putting a spire or setback on it to push it higher, or is it merely a matter of taste?

considering previous designs have had design elements above the highest occupied floors, I would expect something along those lines.. Especially is SHoP is involved.

In terms of impact, it reminds me of this never build proposal:

NY Stock Exchange Tower



Year: 1996
Height: 1792ft. (546m) / 140 stories
Architect: KPF
Developer: Donald Trump

More infos in this SCP post from 2008:

Times have changed...

Trump is too busy inflating his ego in the presidential race to be too busy inflating his ego in the real estate market. 80 South Street will not be nearly as tall as Trump's NYSE tower.

I know. Due to the location, this proposal came to my mind and found the story behind it interesting.

Nice calculations, but you measured from the main roofdeck of the Continental Center, which is not 169m, so it's total height should be more like 419m.

It gives you a general idea yes, but may not be that accurate in depicting the final height.

Howard Hughes Corp. finalizes $390M development site sale to Chinese firm
The transaction depended on the transfer of 303,113 square feet in air rights

Quote:
After securing hundreds of thousands of additional development rights, the Howard Hughes Corp. has finalized its sale of 80 South Street to China Oceanwide Holdings.

The deal, initially announced in August, was contingent on Howard Hughes transferring an additional 303,113 square feet in air rights — after already securing 104,167 square feet — to the site, according to the sale agreement. The Chinese firm paid $390 million for the site, according to a statement released by Howard Hughes on Thursday. The City Planning Commission approved the air rights transfer in February, bringing the site’s development potential to 817,784 square feet and clearing the way for the two parties to finalize the sale.

The building is expected to be 1,436 feet and 113 stories, according to documents filed with the planning commission. The building would contain 441,077 square feet of residential space and 376,707 square feet for hotel, officce or retail use.

Howard Hughes, which is redeveloping the South Street Seaport, bought the property in 2014 for $100 million and a parcel at 173 Front Street for $24 million in 2015. — Kathryn Brenzel

Dancing bananas galore indeed!

Tallestkidontheblock, you deserve an award, you were mighty close in predicting the height.

Now there are still a lot of unanswered questions here cause the height is based on the original 800k'+ for the site but I'm not sure it includes the additional air right purchase that would bring the total sq/f to 1M+'. So the figure we have might not be final.
Even if it is, with design specifics, like spire/crown, mechanical floors etc... I'm sure it will end up taller than that.
Guys, this is gonna be massive to have a tower that size right on the waterfront downtown.
This is easily the most exciting development right now. Let just hope we don't wait too long for it.
