I remember the Brooklyn Clock tower (One Hanson Place) arguement that it should be the tallest and remain the icon of Brooklyn.

Meanwhile, fast forward, and all of DoBro is a major skyscraper node. Back in the day, during the soft cost stage of Atlantic Yards aka Pacific Park, the NIMBY scum were spewing their Williamsburg Bank Tower rubbish. And they lost dramatically.

So in sum, lets not really worry. 9 Dekalb is rising, City Point Phase III (Tallest of the phases), and this will rise as well. Pacific Park is rising, and that was a major NIMBY war among developers. Again, they lost.

Just like they will lose with the LES towers.
