I just merely musing that, with a bit more forethought, Comcast/Liberty could have left space for a second tower on that site and in doing so, could have avoided the need to buy more land and dig another foundation while at the same time making double use of the Suburban Station connection and keeping their campus as close together as possible. A second tower could easily fit on the site without appearing "jammed" in. Heck, in NY, they'd fit three towers here. The height really has nothing to do with what I was even talking about.
I think the massing of this building is already pretty dense for the site. To fit in a second tower, they would have to reduce the floor plates of each, which kind of defeats the purpose of the large contiguous open space they want.
