Building under construction in Ft. Lee?

Does anyone viewing these pictures know the name of the highrise under construction in the upper right corner of the above pictures? The building looks to be in the Ft. Lee area.

Yes, that is one of the two The Modern Towers in Fort Lee. 150m.

Its crazy to think this wont be the most dominant building in the area one day, if the proposal was put through now how much taller might have it been?

Who knows. Towerdesigns get taller and thinner each month.

Amazing updates btw.

Based on the sizes of those planned around, it could have been 400m+

Fantastic, can't wait to see it in person.

Though I'll probably wait for Hudson Yards to finish before visiting NY again.

Just seen this on the news. Man, One57 can't catch a break can it? Hopefully this is just a minor issue though and won't stall construction. We're sooo close...

One57 was supposed to be 1300 feet tall.

I'm unaware that it's height was reduced as well. I guess I joined a year or two after all that went down.
