Something like this, but a lot less crappy!

Yeah, or something minor like a curvy parapet. Just to avoid that truncated look...

Whoa, the level with the trees is a pleasant surprise. I wonder if that's supposed to be an amenity or a private terrace for one of the residences.

EDIT: Per Curbed...

Floor 34 will be a double-height amenity space for condo owners. Renters will have their own amenity spaces.

I agree, for the most part. The original design was iconic, while this one won't even be noticed. A mediocre filler, nothing more.

This is an amazing building that would be the crown jewel of 99% of American skylines.

I like it, it's unique! The curtain wall has to be luxe of course.
