They already took the air rights. The adjacent building can't be redeveloped regardless, which is why buildings cantilever (they can't built up because of height limits).
On another note, there are two similarly-sized buildings about to go up just east of here, along 23rd street. Both will be around 20-21 floors, and both will be condo.
