How Tall will the Tower Be?

The sample drawings in the RFEI show a tower of 402 feet for a 38 floor building.  To put this in context, this is taller than 8 of the 11 towers in the Trump Complex along Riverside Boulevard.  A 50 story building example was also given that would be over 500 ft. high.

The RFEI states that the height can even be larger than the 50 story sample, "The developers should note that taller towers could be built than shown if smaller floor plates are utilized." (p. 62 of the RFEI)

For example, according to the Wall Street Journal, the tower to be built above P.S. 59/H.S. for Art and Design (the ECF's last project) is slated to be 715 ft. high
