This is just speculation, but I'm wondering if this is actually going to be built on top of 25 Madison Avenue. 25 Madison is the Met Life North Tower, which was supposed to be about 100 stories tall, but wasn't finished due to the depression.
My point is, the foundations of that building are strong enough to have a sizable (tall) building erected on top of it. If this proposed building was on 1 Madison Avenue, the building ( probably just the low rise base) would have to be completely gutted.
