@Kanto. Well they are.

@Yankees fan. I was referring to 30 Park Place. Thanks. I forgot about that one . I'll update the list.

Edit. I'm confused. Is the building names 99 Church Street or 30 Park Place? And is the floor count 68 or 80?

That sounds rather interesting, tell me, what do you think when you count a thin steel stick as a building? Please explain me that. I have never understood how somebody might think that a thin steel stick is a building

New York is really on a roll! It's the only city in the developed world that's on such a huge skyscraper spree!

The thin steel stick isnt considere as a building, but as part of it. And if its in the final design of a building,and not attached later, it counts to its overall height. As much as you are against it, this are the rules. So move on Kanto, and dont spread your false dogmatic thoughts all over the forum.

I hadn't even heard of it having 80 floors, so I think 68 is the correct height. As for the building name I think 30 Park Place is the official name but those two addresses represent the same building. Since it will be part hotel, part residential, I assume one of those addresses will be for the hotel, and one for the residential unit, but again it's the same building.

Ah okay thanks. I asked about the floor count because that was in the thread title of the link you gave. But thanks, I got it now. I'll update the list.


Kanto. Do not talk about spires vs roofs in my thread. I've had enough of you over on the WTC forums.

Where did you get 31? I only see 24 buildings that are 300m+. I said that NY would have about 16 supertalls in the near future, but I listed the 900 footers anyway for the sake of having a big list

Hey guys. Did you know that The Drake might possibly be 420 meters tall!? Check it out here:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=118

Credit goes to RobertWalpole for bringing us this wonderful news

If The Drake is indeed going to be 420 meters tall, that would be second tallest in NYC (3rd by pinnacle), taller then the original WTC Twins, and possibly, if it reaches its height to the roof like the other 57 street biggies, the tallest roof in NYC

Just because it is replacing the Drake Hotel, will it also be called Drake? I can't wait to see a render!

*update: Apparently, 440 Park (The Drake) might be as tall as 433 meters tall! That is about 1420 feet.

That thing is an engineering marvel.

I might be off on the count, but I also have 89 floors, with an average slab height of 16'.

If it is indeed 433m, it would (as stated earlier), be the tallest roof in NY and the second tallest roof in the country (after Willis Tower)!

Also, if all proposals come to fruition, it will be the 5th tallest building in the country after the Chicago Old Post Office Redevelopment (2000ft), 1 World Trade Center (1776ft), American Commerce Center (1510ft), and Willis Tower (1451ft)!

^Many people are disagreeing. Basically, it'll be an extremely tall but incredibly skinny (98m) box. Personally, I think that if they can get the right kind of cladding and maybe a certain grid-like design for the glass holders, it could look alright. Otherwise, it could really mess up the skyline.

Here's what I've done so far..It's still not done, but it will be soon..

Yellow color = Skyscrapers
Red color = Supertalls
Green color = Complex of buildings (Without Hudson Yards)

Colored title = U/C
White title = Proposed

Whole NYC



Lower Manhattan



Midtown



More and better map coming soon..

Hopefully we can see some more of those titles change to yellow soon. Looks good though!
