Welcome to the Elevator World News Podcast. This week’s news podcast is sponsored by MACKLOWE’S TOWERING AMBITION: NYC’S TALLEST BY ROOF HEIGHT The New York Times got the scoop on what would be New York City's (NYC) tallest building by roof height at 1,556 ft. and 96 floors, New York YIMBY reports. Being developed by Harry Macklowe, the man behind 432 Park Avenue Tower Fifth along East 51st and 52nd streets in Midtown East features a design by Gensler, Adamson Associates and Dan Shannon of Moed de Armas & Shannon Architects blending several contemporary styles and boasting what would be the city's highest observation deck, a multifloor affair. Renderings unveiled by the Times show a diagrid of crossbeams at the top and an overall bulk similar to 432 Park Avenue, with cutouts for mechanicals and a skinny profile. A lobby clad in white marble looks directly onto St. Patrick's Cathedral. The development must win "several layers" of City Planning Department approvals before it become reality.
