Interesting, crane height mentions 1119ft. Isn’t it a bit tall for a building that’s supposed to be 762ft?

Yeah that does seem ridiculous and almost impossible for a crane to be that high at the top even with the boom sticking straight up. It only makes sense if this is based off of the old 963 ft design. I doubt it will go back to that height though.

Is this faa listing accurate/up to date? I see a lot of 2016 dates on there which would make sense for when they were planning the taller tower.

I don’t believe this particular form is up to date. While I was browsing the evaluation list, the heights were different.

It will be great to see that blank concrete wall go away once this one goes up.

I couldn’t grab a pic because the train was coming but this should be moved to U/C. It’s at least 2 floors above ground now.

Taken 11/2. About 3 stories up in the front, 2 in the back

From 44th Road (backside)

Views from the 7 train platform.

Right now it’s just peaking over the elevated platform, but pretty soon it will completely overshadow the station.
