New York does have lots of supertall scrapers on the way. Currently there are two supertalls under construction (Freedom Tower and 57 Carnegie) and another tower that misses supertall height by just 3m (4WTC). Next month, WTC3 will start, which will mean 3 supertalls + 1 almost supertall under construction at once. WTC2 will start before long, and there are a whole slew of other supertall projects in New York's pipeline:
http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?searchID=47168119

When you consider that New York already has two supertalls (Empire State Building and Chrysler) and another two which are supertalls including a separate* spire (New York Times and Bank of America), then it's clear that New York will retake the lead from Hong Kong (6 true supertalls, and a 7th if spire is included), and stay ahead of any mainland Chinese city when it comes to 300m+ buildings.

Shanghai, for instance, currently has just two convincing supertall skyscrapers, with just one and possibly two more under construction. Beijing has only one at present. There are some new skyscraper projects coming Beijing's way, but they're not enough for Beijing to catch New York.

It's actually Dubai that's really kicking arse, with 17 buildings already over the 300m mark, another two to rise above that height in the coming months, and the 20th (!!) Dubai supertall will probably be the 516m Pentominium.



* I think Chrysler has a better claim to be a true supertall than the New York Times Building or Bank of America because its spire is integrated with the roof rather than separate.

There's a lot of stuff on the boards including 3 massive megadevelopments that will include supertalls. All in approval process or already approved and awaiting a rebound in the commercial real estate market which determines what gets built in the US.

Good News, and really ... Eg in places like Shanghai, we see some tall buildings. While in NY, the entire city is closed and all tall buildings.

56 Leonard was prepped and then placed on hold. The developer is sticking to a 2011 start date.

Wow! I never seen 15 Penn Plaza rendering before. It is great addition to midtown NYC skyline! I don't know what to say about Carnegie 57. This rendering isn't great and need to see more renderings. However, I like almost every projects going on in NYC. Do you guys think NYC will ever get hypertall?

Well, on the 57th Carnegie project, believe it will be a great addition to the skyline of NY. The height of the 57 Carnegie is great, but I did not like the glass of the project. I think the glasses could be darker, which would fit better with the surrounding buildings near Central Park.

I believe that in coming years, the trend is to have more Super talls in NYC. There are many places that can be added amazing skyscrapers, we just need the economy to encourage us, that many designers will think of something to the space to be filled.

It would be nice to see the two skylines (Financial District & Midtown) merge together in time. In between these districts should come some even higher buildings than the current highest U/C WTC1 (hypertalls as some would call them). THEN you would have an amazing skyline!

No, it wouldn't.
The space in between the two skylines has some of the best urban neighborhoods in the world. It's some of the best parts of Manhattan, it doesn't need supertalls.

50 WEST STREET IF IT'S NOT ONE THING, IT'S ANOTHER


Rendering by Helmut Jahn / Photo by Carl Glassman

Developer Time Equities broke ground in June 2008 on a 66-story hotel/condo tower at 50 West Street. It was a grand affair, with the company’s CEO Francis Greenberger and city officials joined by a vicar, a reverend and a rabbi to bless the site. More than a year later, divine intervention may still be in order. By fall the work had stopped and today that ground remains a neatly maintained but dusty lot. Designed by architect Helmut Jahn, the $600-million mixed-use tower was to include a hotel on the first 14 floors, condominiums above and a public plaza.

According to a Time Equities source, who did not want to be identified, delayed completion of the foundation means that construction now must wait, not due to financing, but because the work can’t coincide with the State Department of Transportation’s planned reconstruction of West Street. “The impact that [foundation work] would have on the water table makes it not feasible for us to build,” the source said.

At last word, Time Equities is projecting a 2012 start but they have had some problems of their own so who knows?
