I will slowly add every big project of NYC into my Google Earth, and create from time to time new panoramic views of the city. Here is number one. Enjoy your weekend, gentlemen.

Pic hosting sites often have a size limit for pics that get uploaded on them. Uploading larger pics often requires some sort of subscription, but there might be pages which don't have such a limit for free users. I always use Tinypic so I dunno

Try minus. They have a hefty 10 mb limit.

Give imgur a shot. It's the fastest I've ever encountered.

The right massing model is 30 P Place, a tower developed by Silverstein. It has a thread in the skyscraper section.

The other massing model, is a POTENTIALLY new supertall on the site currently occupied by the ST John Uni, a couple blocks north of WTC1. The site is abt to be sold and has air right for a 350k-500k tower.

The St John building isnt going to be a supertall. The site is large and 500k sq feet isnt that much, even for residential. Not every new residential proposal fot Manhattan is going to be supertall.

The midtown towers indeed look accurate but the downtown towers not so. Still good work.

It's at 101 Murray Street. I doubt it's going to be a supertall, but it could be quite high because it's a fairly small lot. I'm thinking something like 123 Washington.
