As very attractive as a new 1400 foot building will be, which btw we can surely assume will be more architecturally significant then the current piece. It is another case of taking office space thats already serving and holding a lot of people, and turning that sf into huge apartments that will not only serve very few, but do nothing in terms of stemming actual residential demand. It reinforces this idea that height really isn't a good measure of the density of people these buildings are bringing into the area, or that all of this new construction is helping the city 'grow'.

Frankly the buildings that are making a dent are the relative crapola on far west 42nd. NY really needs many many more of these right now.
