At near 600 feet it will already steal the spotlight from One 57, because it's closer to the park. But if it goes to near 700 feet then it will be close to blocking One 57. At the proposed 577 feet it's already the tallest building on CPS (not 59th st). The architect has not choice but to do a quality job, like 15 CPW, because just look at all the buildings on CPS. Although it's not guaranteed if the developer and architect will listen to CPS and us.

BTW Vornado is known for glass buildings. They have very few classical buildings they own in D.C and NYC, and to my recollection they haven't built any in that style (only glass boxes). Surprisingly I haven't seen many Vornado residentails either. They're mainly office.
