That's because the E tower in that rendering has increased height. The towers are too close in height for one to be really dominant. The reason 1 and 2 work well together in renderings is because of the massive spire. Remove that, and they're also close in height, but we expect that from buildings that are replacing the Twins. There are going to be many more buildings around these towers, a lot of them very tall. Something needs to stand out.

This tower will be Ross's personal trophy building. He will live at the very top, so maybe he wanted to be closer to the clouds.
NEW YORK heals.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
