I'd love to see that as well, but without considerable upgrades to the 7 (and transit in general), NYC will start to hit a wall WRT to new development because existing infrastructure cannot handle it.
If you think about it, this is a prime location because Queensboro plaza has both the 7 and N/Q/R lines running through it, plus the E-train, but all of them are packed to the brim at rush hour. Something needs to change.
