Yeah but the HY North Tower will be an office building, and modern office buildings tend to taller floors, or more space in between floors.
So Beekman is 76 floors and about 875, Trump World Tower is 72 floors and 861, and both residential. So given that this has 60, and the Silver Towers which is another residential Silverstein development also have 60 floors and are 653, I'd expect something around 650-680 tops again depending on the size of the retail base, or crown. A 60 story office building would be a different story, there we'd talking 850 at the bare minimum.
