If Brookfield signs Time Warner and Newscorp, for example, neither will require large trading floors which eat up a lot of square feet and reduce the height.
Dear holy mother of god, how many times do I have to explain this? In fact, I don't want to anymore but I will anyway.
read carefully so I don't have to explain yet again... If you look at the old rendering, it shows the 1215 footer with the 935 footer, if you look at the new, it is the exact
same 935 footer on the right (unchanged) with the same tower on the left, a twin. The porportions are off, they are wrong to be anything more than 900 some feet. Plus they are both 2msf... a lot of hints there.
The only way I can see them being taller is if the rendering is wrong, or the facts from the article, or if a third tower is built taller.
