What you're proposing has no relevance to Midtown, or really Manhattan as a whole.

There are almost no parking lots, and 80%-90% of the buildings are old, so you can't get new buildings without replacing old buildings.

Again, if your stance is "preserve all prewars" then you're advocating for a museum city. There will be virtually no development.
