I think at first the main reason for it was so it would be the tallest building in the world...but with the burj dubai reaching around 2,000ft and
they (UAE) said that it has potential to be built higher...so after that New York City couldn't hope to take the title back.
Does anyone know what the Spires point is? Is that where the turbine will be held??? I think the turbine will be below the spire. The building is
1,500 feet tall without the 276 ft tall spire. On top of the spire current plans are to put antenna's on it, which will make it over 2,000 ft.
Personally I wish the would put all the antenna's in the spire, that way its still looks good visually...and doesn't have big antennas all over it.
