Still 20 to go? Should be done in no time with this quick construction.

I tried to estimate the building's height by comparing it to the buildings close to it in the pics you folks posted and I came up with a height of 247 meters or 810 feet. If any of you have more accurate info please let me know and I'll correct my diagram

It'll fit right in with those great Civic Center buildings, except Javits, that hideous box.

Why do classicists feel the need to be so aggressive to buildings they don't like?

They complain so much about modernist dogma that they created their own, equally annoying dogma. They think something has to abide by their set of rules to look beautiful.

I counted 4 floors above the extra-thickness floor (which indicates a setback), so we are currently 1 floor below the floor plate the 4 trees stand on, which is the middle of the 2 story columns, which means there are only 4 more habitable floors before the crown.
