The 1.2 million square feet is the current "as of right".

The area is being signficantly upzoned, however, and there are considerable air rights available for purchase from Grand Central Terminal.

It also looks like they're planning a significant transit connection with Grand Central, and the various subway lines. If they invest in a major connection, they will likely get additional air rights (as with Vornado's planned 15 Penn Plaza tower).
