They say the Brookfield one is in the $20 Billion range! That's more than the WTC + GS! I'm sure that they all cost at least $10 billion. Each plan has around ten to twenty new skyscrapers.
NY is unbelievable!!!!

Was the Extell plan the one using the skyscrapers to make bridges? Has that even ever been done before?

The skyscraper themsevles don't make the suspension bridge that holds up the park but instead the bases of these buildings.

The Hudson Yards are only a piece of a giant puzzle. Here we can see the placeholders for the two other massive towers that will include 4.7 million sq. ft., and the MSG site that will have numerous other supertalls. NYC is BLOWING UP with scrapies.

What's that skinny skyscraper in front of the ESB? The one with the crazy-ass facade?

And yeah, the amount of both skyscrapers and supertalls here will be rising at a rate never before seen here. No one will be let down.

These proposals all look fantastic.....! The only reservation I might add is that the Empire State Building's location should be protected from overshadowing by similar sized or larger buildings......never thought that would ever happen but with buildings rising around the world twice it's height, preservation of the building including its New York icon position should be taken into account by any nearby project. New York is the city never finished.....and future developments will eclipse the E.S.B...as the W.T.C. did years ago but it still is New York's symbol. Guess this idea devalues property close to the E.S.B. ?

Not classy enough for New york, they look like freedom Tower regects! Theres 2 two many designs that have the building at an angle, shame they couldn't come up with something more.

Eh? Are you seriously saying this...



...isn't classy enough for New York? It's a great design. Just because it isn't boxy doesn't mean it's not classy lol. Those twins are considerably better than the Freedom Tower...

Edit: I just realised, this is actually a very futuristic looking design, I hope to one day see it in the flesh if this is what gets built. I really like it/them.

I think they look better than normal boxes, but just think that the angle design has been done too many times before.

I think the designs fit very well into NYC. The city is evolving and is beeing transformed with each new tower no matter if 'classy' or futuristic.

The outlook from the public viewing gallery is great

Painful Truth

" Horrible! ".... and, not just for NYC. Because If NYC approves It, Every other so-called " progressive " city in America will want Something like It.

Are you serious?? To break it down so people understand what is taking place.. For about 110 years give or take NY & Chicago have been continuously adding to their skylines ( far longer than anywhere else) and still are. During that 110 year span both have hit these phenomenal climaxes evident at the turn of the 19th/20th c., 1910's, late 20's/early 30's, late 60's throughought the 70's, 80's, and if you haven't noticed Chicago is in the middle of one such climax and NY is approaching a significant building boom. The thing that baffles me about your statement is every other "progressive" city in America wanting it. Many of which do not have the means nor the need to create it. This is just what NY needs and it's just right for NY.. what do we want now? A sunken train yard forever? Should we leave the westside as is? Say no to more office space, housing, cultural centers, and green space and yes! To a barren wasteland of neglected buildings and a train yard.. Come on now the wheels keep turning here.. and this project like the rest in NY ( sans the Mcsams) are just a sign of the times. I never lived through the art deco era and watched as the city transformed then.I never watched as the corporate box took over. I can barely remember caring when the boom of the late 80's was going on.. but I'll bet this will be better than all of them and I can't wait for everything to start to unfold as it appears we haven't seen anything yet. When every so called " progressive city" in America can propose something like this with the intention of carrying it out, then I'll be impressed, matter of fact when every booming city across the globe can continue doing what they are doing now even 10-20 years from now, I'll be astonished.
