Ja they are!

It's also the general theme design that made me think that. It really could be a design by Behnisch, who designed the Ozeaneum aquariums.

Is it just me or does the inside remind anyone else of the inside of the Planet of the Apes Natural History Museum. Ha, I just tried to find a picture and found this. http://newsmachete.com/?news=1216

Did a little data mining using CTBUH to find out how much is u/c currently / topped out.

May be slightly incomplete, but it gives us an idea.

Update: Same list but for proposals. Again, slightly incomplete. Just from the high rise thread alone and the news that comes in on new proposals, many are missing that are over 14 floors.

Construction wise, many more should be included as a lot of sites in demo, especially in LIC, are in the process of seeing steel/caissons.

Which one are you referring to? The one in the front is 23-10 Queens Plaza, 481 ft

http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/10/yimb...site-more.html



The one in the back is 28 on 28th, 646 ft

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1663902



There are many other towers in that height range u/c in LIC that aren't visible yet, not to forget the 900'+ tower that should be rising soon.
LIC is gonna look amazing in the coming years.

^ These are very bland and random designs though. Stone claddings and more setbacked designs would work way better in that area imho.

We've been lobbying for a section that focuses on NYC on SSC. Because to be frank, NYC gets washed out by tons of other cities in the international/world forum (some that most have never heard of), and given the stardom one might say, along with other U.S. cities like Chicago, its kinda crappy to not have a complete section which focuses on the many projects in an organized manner. A focus on a layout thats on a borough basis to differentiate between numerous projects with similar addresses. Essentially something that can give the type of centric focus on the city like we see in SSP.

Luckily its happening pretty soon.

Its good because then we can have compilations and threads in a organized manner which makes it easier to find threads, and an area where people who know what they are talking about can discuss, as opposed to just throwing threads into the global projects section where they get washed out by the masses. Similar to the Miami subforumn, only for NYC.

Permits Filed & New Look: Solar Carve, 40 10th Avenue, Meatpacking District

http://newyorkyimby.com/2015/11/perm...-district.html




Quote:
Renderings for the futuristic Solar Carve at 40-56 Tenth Avenue first surfaced three years ago, long before the city shot down a variance that would’ve allowed the developer to build bigger on a rather challenging site in Meatpacking. William Gottlieb Real Estate finally got approval for the office tower last year, and last week, they filed new building applications for the tower next to the High Line.

The plans don’t tell us much, but they do say the building will top out at 12 stories and 190 feet. It’ll host 116,205 square feet of commercial space, including two floors of retail topped by 10 floors of office space. The second floor will have a terrace, which will presumably be accessible for the office tenants above.

Jeanne Gang’s Studio/Gang Architects, based in Chicago, will still design the project. The shape of the building appears to have changed somewhat, but in general, it looks a bit more traditional and less wedge-shaped.
Also in Yimby,

Reveal For 18-Story, 195-Unit Project At 41-20 27th Street, Long Island City

Quote:
In February of this year, YIMBY reported on applications for a 15-story, 99-unit mixed-use building at 41-20 27th Street, in Long Island City, but now the developer, Rabsky Group, is planning to build an 18-story, 195-unit residential building, with a small 2,888 square-foot retail component on the ground floor. The Real Deal has renderings of the project, which is being designed by ODA Architecture. The building will measure 140,130 square feet, and its rental units will average 704 square feet apiece. Existing low-slung commercial buildings must first

Brooklyn

Quite a day for Brooklyn

Quote:
Downtown Brooklyn's first new office tower in more than a decade will rise
Project will be the first ground-up commercial development following a 2004 rezoning, which so far has spawned only residential buildings.

http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...cade-will-rise


Quote:
Plans for a large commercial office building in downtown Brooklyn, the neighborhood's first in over a decade, were unveiled Monday by the city.

Manhattan-based JEMB Realty will construct a a 400,000 square-foot office tower at 420 Albee Square, between Fulton and Willoughby streets instead—a development the administration said is part of its goal of meeting the demand citywide for 60 million square feet of office space expected during the next decade. Originally, the developer planned a residential tower for the site.

"This is a fantastic project that will stoke Brooklyn's economic engine and deliver the kind of high-quality jobs and careers we want to secure our place in the 21st-century economy," Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development Alicia Glen said in a statement.

The development will be the first ground-up commercial project in downtown Brooklyn since the area was rezoned in 2004. Instead of fostering more commercial square footage as intended, the rezoning has brought only residential towers so far.

The announcement is part of the Willoughby Square project, which will involve the development of a subterranean parking garage topped with a public park at ground level.
