What is that huge plot of empty land next to the UN Building in the NYC pic? Is that the Con Ed site?

Did New York build land where water once stood or is the shoreline where it's always been?

I'm not sure about further north along the East River but along the Hudson definitely.

Yeah. Solow, who owns the site, has until 2016 sometime before his permits expire. Way the market is, it's unbelievable that site still hasn't been redeveloped.

I know really, you think supertalls would be popping up all over.

Isn't the current proposal for Con Ed pretty lame if I'm not mistaken? Over a decade ago they were thinking of putting an 1100' and 880' foot building there but now I think it's just a bunch of 5-700 foot apartment blocks that are planned. Hopefully that's not final although it would still be a nice filler

Yep, it's the site of Sheldon Solow's moribund project of several 700 ft. towers designed by Richard Meier. What ultimately gets built there is anyone's guess.

Doha's skyline has come a long way and looks quite concentrated and dense!
