NYC needs another art deco style supertall. I think 432 Park would be nicer if it used the design for Silverstein's on-hold 912 ft 4 seasons hotel but extended to 1420 ft. A few small setbacks and inside corners could do wonders.
The Metropolitan Life North Tower was supposed to reach around 1,700 feet if you count the mast. The roof height was around 1,400 feet. It was supposed to have 100-110 floors.
