The little spires on top of the building should be taller, maybe a hundred feet or more. It would make the tower even more imposing and add to the Art Deco/gothic feel of the design.

Agreed. Much taller spires would be even better.

Oh, well. It's still a great tower.

while i am prepared to be dissappointed with the not gothic enough crown, that facade will never cease to be amazing looking. they really didn’t have to do that, but they did. enduring proof that not all developers are chintzy, value engineering shiteheads. it’s the real deal eye candy.

I imagine they're installing a tuned mass damper and that is the reason for the lack of glass at the top. Anyone? Bueller?

Seems odd this was announced so late. It must have been planned for a long time.
