So how many taller buildings are there still left in Manhattan/New York?

Somebody has posted a nice comparison diagram on that issue some time ago, but this thread goes so fast..

Look...birds don't read these threads or any web pages or university papers on the subject...they just fly, usually looking down for something to eat....their eyes don't see like a human sees.....it must be quite a shock to slam into a skyscraper...but then....the higher the building maybe they have time to shake them selves out of it before hitting the pavement.....there is much chat about birds on this thread of late ?

I'm not entirely sure where we are up to now, but if it's somewhere just below Seven, there are 30 buildings completed or slated for completion this year that surpass 225m.

So 1 WTC is now the tallest (again) in Battery Park City.

And overall, this should mean a big jump in the NYC tallest ranking to around 18th-20th, because there's a dozen buildings between 225m and 229m that 1 WTC could've left behind now (according to CTBUH-data). Half of them in downdown:

Goldman Sachs Headquarters (228 m), 60 Wall Street (227 m), 1 Liberty Plaza, 7 World Trade Center, 20 Exchange Place (all 226 m) and Three World Financial Center (225 m).

Five more higher buildings around Financial District/Civic Center:
1. American International Building 290 m
2. The Trump Building 283 m
3. New York by Gehry 265 m
4. One Chase Manhattan Plaza 248 m
5. Woolworth Building 241 m

If progress continues like now, 1 WTC could be the tallest of lower Manhattan in September, I think!

^I just went to the trouble of updating that diagram and was waiting until they erected the perimeter steel for those floors before uploading it. Thanks for beating me to the punch. Now I won't bother.
