At 1428ft (435m) this will be the most slender building in the world with 1:23 aspect ratio surpassing the Highcliff in Hong Kong, China. It will also be an instant New York icon with its American Art Deco architecture. The tower will have 800-ton tuned mass damper installed on top to minimize swaying.
