This project would be an excellent addition to the neighborhood. Already rapidly gentrifying, but Washington Heights/Inwood could be truly thriving if it saw some additional vertical expansion. It's the last area of Manhattan besides Harlem proper that's still somewhat affordable for the middle class, so it would be great to put additional housing in. Hopefully this project is the start of greater development overall in the neighborhood, as continued gentrification in the Heights will also push more people into Harlem.

I wonder how this addition would change the skyline, though? I'd guess that given the elevation of the area the tallest building would top out at 650-700' above sea level, which would give it a rather prominent position.
