Says you. It's absurd to think that NY won't have at least one 1,700'+ building (excluding 1WTC) by 2015/16. To add, it's fact that this plan calls for buildings that will be over 1,400' tall. Anyway, I'm not sure that they are going to be exact twins right now, but I guess seeing the title of this thread is getting to me.

Thank you for pointing out the other towers.

gah! no more 900-footers! Come on, NY is like the master of spires, stretch it 100 feet more!

But yeah, this is sounding like a serious complex. Go NY.

I have to say I think it is good we need more office space becuase this means even a larger skyline for the city even though we could also lose it to Jersey or any other suburbs.

Are the burbs or Jersey Prime spots? Manhattan is the desired location.

This isn't a construction forum, it's a supertall forum, all projects, no matter what stage they are at, are put here.

this is a great project with a horrible location in my opinion. i think they should go downtown or something, not this close to overshadowing the ESB. personally, some may disagree, but i dont think midtown is ready for that yet.

They're all over 50 floors tall (the Conde Nast Building is not a 1000' footer because it doesn't have a spire). The same goes for the ESB and maybe 2 and 3.

This is the comment I was quoting...Claiming 11 supertalls??? If these 2 are constructed then I might say NYC has 6 or 7. But claiming 11 seems a little much when Bank of America is 53 stories. 80 South Street is 56 and NY Times Headquarters is 52. I think it almost a stretch to call The Chrysler Building a supertall. IMO

There are probably 50 towers of 30 stories or more under construction (or about to start constuction ) in Manhattan right now.

Take a pill dude! Remember, this is "proposed" and in NYC. My kids are 10 and 13 so I figure at the rate things happen in NYC I'll take my grandchildren to the groundbreaking.
