Lastly, a later scheme showing a taller version of the last scheme, with taller terraces on the north and south sides like what this project evolved to, the Comcast Center.

In 2004, this design was revealed with less limestone, and a short pyramid on top

In 2005, the final design was revealed at the groundbreaking

Two different elevations of the American Commerce Center

And is anyone able to tell me ANY of the numbers/heights in the right. I can see the roof heights are 1,068 and 1,210 feet. I’m trying to extract information from this specific diagram above, but the quality it really low

Edit:
These could be the correct heights. I first placed the red lines onto the highlighted sections and noticed three of them are the same height. I also noticed the fourth section on the original diagram states a height of 15’6" for 11 floors, multiplied equals 171’6". I also went through many iterations of putting lines on my own model and lining it up with the diagram. I came to these conclusions, as the height of the 4th section also lined up perfectly on my model.
