NEWARK, NJ | Grant USA Tower | 1,870' Pinnacle / 1,749' Roof | 121 FLOORS | N/B

So I was looking at New Jersey Skycrapers(We are known for more sprawl then skyscrapers).And I saw that in the 80's the(Then) world's tallest buliding was to be bulit in Newark.Which raises the questions.
What would it look like if it was bulit?

And would this have been used for 9/11 attacks(Because it's near the airport)?

Interesting proposal. Out of all places, Newark.

I remember when this was proposed. That same guy renovated Newark's city hall.

Supposedly the Teachers village might have something over 600 feet. Although at this point it might be a vision, but I'm hoping that the NYC and Jersey City boom spills over to Newark. Its needs to happen! Newark is overdue for a development boom.
