NEW YORK - Macy's top executive confirms they're planning to build a skyscraper on top of its flagship store in Herald Square.

A spokesperson for the company says they've met with city, government and community leaders in recent months to discuss the project.

They say a commercial office tower is the best way to promote economic activity in the area, while continuing to operate the store.

But they say they're still early in the process and there are several obstacles to overcome before more concrete details can be given.
