The spire would be a nice addition, if the overall height of the building itself were increased. Midtown has spires, but the skyline is so massive that the other spires don't account for this part of the skyline. Its why I think the CP tower needs one. Then, when you consider all of the massive, bulky towers going up in the vicinity of this one, there's the risk of the Hudson Yards being too boxy.
That render is a redesign though, not just the adding of a spire. 55 Hudson, which is a neighboring tower of nearly 800 ft looks significantly shorter in that rendering.
