    They deleted a ring beam at the very top of house which leaves the highest point now approx. 825' above the street.

    And the middle is far from "regular" no two floor/slab plans match. Balconies are always changing location.
    Thanks for the info.

    The last numbers quoted in the newspapers said it would be 821 feet. So deleting a beam gained it 4 feet?

    The views to the SE from the first 40 stories are going to be brutal.

    Very early on a Monday for the calculator to come out but the top of the EMR roof is (building) elevation 824'8". The sidewalk on the NE corner at Leonard and Church is approx. elevation 17'10". So, give or take a few inches, the building is actually down to 810' above the road. (It lost about 11' feet with the ring beam).

    I guess I could check floor plans, but off the top of anyone's heads, are there any apartments sited directly at Long Lines and without alternate views (West or North)?

    This is the 20th floor as an example. The B-East apartment has a pretty big mouthful of Long Lines to deal with.

    Those buildings were designed with nuclear attacks in mind.

    Will this building have a core similar to 432 Park?

    That apartment also has a southern view. I checked a map; it looks like it will catch 20 Exchange and everything west. That seems good enough for a sell.

    I think a real problem is an EAST apartment below the height of the NYLS. That southern view doesn't exist.

    That's limited to 1 apartment on the 3rd, 4th and 5th floors that are north-east corner apartments with pretty big terraces towards the corner and the B-East apartments on 8th thru 11th. They are about 3000SF, the biggest on the floor, and extend south to north along the entire east elevation.

    Looks like they tried to combat the lack of views with size and some bells and whistles.

    12th floor is the first with the SE corner clear shot.

    That will probably become a concubine's apartment.
