It sure is the Bank of America Plaza. Although a bit slimmer and taller.

It's somewhere between 17 State Street and 55 Water Street.

When this building is done, these three will look good together. I like these more ornate towers that rely on a bit of artistic skill and not just size and geometry.

Sounds like South Ferry Plaza (1084ft) might have fit your bill:

Those double storey ledges really add some much needed stateliness to the design.

These last few floors are okay, but the first 10 or so floors are so bland! Stern could have done better with them.

Looking down Broadway in Soho. It's almost the exact same height as Woolworth!

4 more, they were on the 77th Friday. I'm not sure how the crown factors into that. There's still around 100 ft to climb.
