Through the magic of 'alternative means" this is the best capture I could get of the angle in question:

Unfortunately, the top of the frame is blurred out but I recall the TransAmerica building was entirely visible within the frame.

Looks like the saucer is about 1.5 to 2 times the length of the TransAm tower, which is itself 325 meters, or roughly the length of the Prime timeline Enterprise. That puts the saucer anywhere from 488 to 650 meters.

The nuEnterprise is, what, about the length of the Vengance's saucer? Even at 488 meters that's still bigger than the Prime version.
