Thanks. I've started work on the new version, which is by necessity almost a complete rebuild (they changed just about all of the details on the building), but I'm taking my time. So stay tuned to the usual threads in about a week or two.
However, among the details removed are a couple of mechanical floors. They don't appear to have been replaced. It's still preliminary here, but we may be looking at a total height (including spires) of 1,170 feet. Based on the Team Macarie renders done for RRS:
Base is ~201 feet.
Then there's 3 mech. floors at 27' each.
Then 53 office floors at 13'6" a pop.
Two more mech floors at 27'
Finally the fins, which appear to be three rows of 13'6" glass and steel panels.
The version in the Silverstein/dBox renders shows a slightly different floor layout, which comes out to ~1,132 feet to the fins, close enough to the old figures that I wouldn't be concerned. However, I'm not sure if they're going off of a different version of the building, or if they did a more basic tweak to their previous model. Yet, the preliminary numbers have an interesting conclusion and I'm unsure how to bridge that big of a gap in the numbers to bring a total height back to the 1,240 foot range.
So...maybe there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, it might be nothing. Discuss.
