That's just a portion of the outdoor deck.

I like #1 best. From within, it looks less "claustrophobic" and from the outside, aside from the clear glass it somewhat breaks up the monotony of the surrounding skin.

I've fallen for this one, what a treat! This is a development that actually cares about the city it's in.

Probably. But that's irrelevant to your question and the answer. The building will be as opulent as it's going to be because the financial industry tenants have the money, and they want to and will pay for such opulence.

(Also not wanting to go political, but...)

Ironically, the financial industry very much helped produce One Vanderbilt, in that they knew how to find $1.5 billion dollars for SL Green to actually build the thing:

SL Green Closes on $1.5B Construction Loan for One Vanderbilt

If the bankers skimmed too much money off that deal, then the answer is to make it as easy as possible for some other company to start up, do it better and cheaper, and take all of their business. Dodd-Frank and the mountains of regulations that existed prior to that aren't a step in that direction.

They are "only" tenants but since the 1960's TD Bank and good design in tall buildings have had a very well known shared history (google Mies van der Rohe, Philip Johnson, Phyllis Lambert and Toronto TD Bank Centre). I am excited that TD Bank will inhabit another trophy building, this time in NYC.
