If you go by CTBUH, (I don't, but you do),then the Trump is 423 meters, and is much taller then NYTT, BOA, and is even taller then 1 WTC, unless you count that antennae.

The antenna of the WTC will likely be counted as it's height, IE. the building will officially be the US's tallest building on the charts in architectual/official height.

Personally, I'd rather count the technical mechanical height of the roof as the top.

Mechanical floors are okay, since they ARE a part of the building.
Spires depend on many factors.

You have been saying this on every thread... you sound like your life hinges on some imaginary number. It is antennae, who cares if they count it. Since it is clearly an antennae, them counting it means their system is broken. NYC will have America's tallest when they build a building with a roof height of 443+ meters. Real Height doesn't include spires and antennae's, they count for pinnacle height. They could technically put a 440 meter spire on the Sears, and call it America's tallest. I know what your thinking, you can't add a spire after a building is completed, well actually you can, they added one over 15 years after completion to a building in Dallas, and now they count it. I don't care whether NY or Chicago has the tallest, i just want it to be by real height, like this system I created http://i.imgur.com/Kdezp.jpg

Hopefully this building if it goes for tallest will get it through actual height

Nobody knows. I'm beginning to wonder whether this is a stale proposal like Tower Verre

This is not a stale proposal. This building will eventually be built on top of the new 7 Train extension to the Hudson Yards, which won't be finished until the end of 2015. So again, the current lot where this building will rise is a huge construction site, as the 7 train extension is being finished. Because of that, construction on the tower can't start until the 7 train is pretty much finished, which will be some time in late 2015.

On the plus side, this is a mixed use building, with a small office component and the top half of the tower will be residential. With a smaller office component, the pre leasing requirements will be smaller in terms of the number of square footage.

It's the Sherwood Equities Building across the street from the Girasole, it's also a little over 1,000 feet. There was an article about it a couple of months ago, the developer said they still very much intend to build it, but that's probably a year or two away at least, but again they have every intention to build it.

This tower can compete with the residential towers going up in midtown in terms of height so it's height could possibly exceed 1400 ft. A new design would probably come along with a height increase like that.
