Hey, what's that on the top of 550 Vanderbilt? Model shows what rendering doesn't

The model of 550 Vanderbilt, which appears in the condo sales office on Flatbush Avenue at the Barclays Center, seems to extend the equivalent of at least three floors higher than announced.

That should not be shocking: the building is supposed to be 202 feet and 17 stories, so there's certainly room for additional height within the building envelope. (If for some reason the building is already 202 feet without the extension, that would be meaningful.)

But it does represent a contrast with the main rendering used to pitch the project, which minimizes the building's scale.
