No, it was just an indication for the design of Skyy.

I think they have like a couple hundred thousand square ft of air rights more than one Vanderbilt, so this will definitely rise to be taller

NO, I haven't missed the point. My point is/was that it's a proper use of the train image because the point of the rendering wasn't to make an exact model, and secondly, the MTA uses similar trains.

One Vanderbilt was a very specific design, it could have very well been shorter, and at one point in the process was. Both 50 Hudson and the Spiral are much larger buildings, though they have larger footprints. This footprint will be slightly large than Vandy's. However, I do believe that they will go higher than Vandy, and probably by a decent margin. I think it's likely to be higher than 270 Park also.
