Supertalls in Harlem are likely a long way off, but there's definitely some height creep going on, especially on the Upper East Side -- prime example being 145-151 E. 60th, which has been pegged at somewhere between 1000-1240 feet.

Obviously, E. 60th is a long way from the north end of the Park, but it definitely strikes me as a harbinger of things to come. Anyway, I tend to agree with Weissenberg -- unless you were in a 1400+ footer, it's hard to imagine you'd see much of the Manhattan cityscape from Harlem, although the CPS towers would look very impressive from that direction.

I am not sure what the rules are regarding 500m supertalls in uptown Manhattan and nearby La Guardia Airport in Queens.

there maybe some height restrictions.

Uptown's New Tallest?

Btw, what's the tallest tower in Uptown Manhattan (or Harlem) currently?

Wiki says the record holder was the brutalist dump called Harlem State Office Building.

Obviously 1800 Park Avenue is set to become the new tallest in Uptown Manhattan / Harlem soon?
The site was acquired this June and probably gets "affordable residential units". See here.

Former renders (2015):

I'd prefer either something more edgy or more classical with stone-clad facades.
Maybe a art-deco-refined version of the Hotel Theresa, Uptown's tallest tower for quite a long time (built 1913 by German stockbroker Gustavus Sidenberg):

Your stalking starts to get truly annoying, "Architecture lover". Go play elsewhere.

Not sure about the current status (this is a very contentious development), but the tallest of the trio going up at the East River Plaza -- the mall between 117th and 119th along the river -- should be taller than 1800 Park:

My guess would be the Riverside Park Apartments which is 404 feet tall. There's also Riverside Church which at 392 feet is close behind but is much prettier.

165-Unit Mixed-Use Project To Have Larger Grocery Store, Deeper Affordability, 120 Fifth Avenue, Park Slope
http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/11/165-...ark-slope.html



Quote:
BY: REID WILSON 12:00 PM ON NOVEMBER 3, 2016
After months of negotiations with the community, developer Avery Hall Investments has agreed to amendments to its two-building, mixed-use development planned at 120 Fifth Avenue, located on the corner of Baltic Street in Park Slope. When the plans were initially presented in February, YIMBY reported that the 196,000-square-foot project would include 165 residential units and 52,000 square feet of retail. Twenty-five percent, or 41 units, would rent at below-market rates through a lottery and 7,500 square feet of the retail space would be designated for a grocery store.

Now, those 41 affordable units will have a wider range of affordability and a 22,000 square feet of retail will be designated for the grocery store, DNAinfo reported. A request for proposals (RFP) will be launched to find a grocer that offers variety in regard to foods and prices. The two buildings will remain at seven and six stories in height. A Key Foods store must first be demolished. Multiple city agencies and the community board must first approve the project. Groundbreaking is tentatively expected in 2017, with completion coming two years later.

Revealed: 17-Story Office Building Planned At 43 West 47th Street, In Midtown’s Diamond District
http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/11/reve...-district.html





Quote:
BY: REBECCA BAIRD-REMBA 7:30 AM ON NOVEMBER 3, 2016
In June, pawn shop owner Boris Aronov filed plans for a 220-foot-tall office building at 43 West 47th Street, in the block-long Diamond District in Midtown. Now, YIMBY has renderings for the development, which will replace a pair of smaller buildings between Fifth and Sixth avenues.

Designed by Marin Architects, the 17-story development will host 58,000 square feet of offices and stores. Glassed-in retail will fill the first two floors, and the rest of the building will be devoted to office space.

Great project with great choose of materials, however I think it should be shorter, but it's still a great project.
