So still another 600+ feet to grow? This will totally dominate everything around it.

^
I still can't believe all the change that's happened in the past 5 years from that view. It's absolutely incredible.

^ The view of the skyline is so much better with peaks and contrasting heights, a concept the NIMBYs do not get with their nonsense need to have everything be the same heights/fitting in/contextual.

Contexualism isn’t always “nonsense” when it comes to things like setbacks and quality of design/materials though. Just look at the huge number of Kaufman/Poon budget hotels with their huge plazas and garish materials and the damage they’ve done to the cityscape of the Garment District. Or the rampant value-engineering that ruined 5 Beekman. Or the travesty that is the watered-down design of Moinian’s 3 Hudson Blvd. Those are the cases where a little bit of neighborhood opposition honestly wouldn’t be inappropriate. Unfortunately, howver, the NIMBY crowd has decided to ignore those real issues and fight against attractive, high-quality buildings just because they’re tall. In that regard I agree with you—their opposition to these towers is completely unwarranted.

On a side note, a few posts up, check out 220 CPS. Blends in so well with the much older structures in the foreground (along CP South).

220 CPS and 111 W 57th will be ones for the architecture books. I could just picture a nice book at some college called "fundamentals of architecture" with a pic of Steinway on the front cover and being used in some architecture class for freshmen.

Sadly, the class on the exam had an average of a 20... and only 1 passed. He went on to design the 1st mega tall for NYC. After great success, and going on to designing Chicago's 1st mega tall, he was struck by a bus (that was taking NIMBYs to a community meeting) and died.

But he is not to be forgotten, as the "fundamentals of architecture", with the Steinway pic, inspired him to transform two skylines.

Getting close to be the dominant tower over Central Park.
