But my friends from New York are always instantly intrigued when I say "there are buildings under construction in Jersey City." The fact is that most New Yorkers who look across the Hudson often will be just as interested in what the new skyline across the mighty river is going to look like as anyone else.

Hotel Willow Begins Rising: 120 West 57th Street



Quote:
Yet another site along 57th Street is going vertical. The Willow Hotel is now rising at 120 West 57th Street, creating even more buzz on a stretch of 57th already dominated by the construction of One57 (and soon 105 West 57th, as well). Designed by Roman & Williams and rising 299', the hotel seems quite simple, but not completely mundane--decent filler for a stretch of Midtown soon to be dominated by colossal supertalls.

It's not that I dislike Jersey City at all, my boy owns a house there and I spend half my time in New Jersey. This is just off topic and it makes it difficult to follow a thread that is already redundant. There are dedicated threads for large projects and they do not need to be duplicated here.

^The list is for U/C towers only, and 80 south street might not even be built.

Hotels A-Go-Go!

Penn Station retail site close to adding 39-story hotel



Quote:
A high-profile ownership group is moving forward with plans for a 39-story, 330-room hotel on West 35th Street, the New York Post reported, and is in talks with five hotel brands to stake a flag on the property.

The property, a former Howard Johnson between Seventh and Eighth avenues, was released back to the ownership group of Bobby Cayre, Alex Adjmi, Michael Cayre and Jack Dushey after begin “tied up” by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Post said.

City Point

Developers Unveil Renderings For Brooklyn's Tallest Building



Quote:
Here it is — Brooklyn’s tallest building!

Developers showed off this rendering of the skyscrapers planned for the former Albee Square Mall — the long-stalled Downtown City Point retail and residential complex on Flatbush Avenue Extension between Willoughby Street and DeKalb Avenue.

The mock-ups, which were presented to Community Board 2 earlier today, showed two gargantuan skyscrapers on Flatbush. The plan needs the approval of the city before it can move forward.

The two towers — the taller of which could rise to 65 stories or more — would be completed in 2015 and 2016, according to Paul Travis, of Washington Square Partners, which is part of the team of developers behind the plan.
Here's a look at the retail component:

Portions of City Point are already under construction before the project gets full approval:

Nearing completion:

Hopefully the newer tower designs will get approved so this puppy can rise skyward.

Thought I should show everyone this! Although everyone thinks the economy sucks, many cities are starting construction comebacks in the US. And unsurprisingly NYC is #1 with 17.2 billion dollars in construction starts. That is about 7 billion dollars over #2 on the list, Dallas Fort Worth. Things are looking good for NYC!

I posted this over at SSP, but I thought this would be a good place as well. I did a little photoshopping the other day to show how the Midtown Skyline should evolve over the next few years:

99 Church St. back on?



From: http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showth...l=1#post391358

Quote:

*The following information was last updated on March 23, 2012.

•Superstructure construction is currently on hold, but may restart late in 2012. A new completion schedule will be posted here upon announcement.
•Foundation work concluded in July 2009
•Contractor to replace section of sidewalk on Park Place; schedule TBA

http://lowermanhattan.info/construct...eet_33450.aspx
Nothing new in terms of Silverstein's stance on 99 Church but an interesting reaffirmation of a schedule they first broached last year...

I did another photoshop collage to compare the current to future skyline, including the full WTC complex and other recent proposals:
