Its says construction.

But it could as wel be preparation (don't know what the site looks like at the moment).
Anyway, there will be another supertall rising by the end of the year.

Thanks :-P
For those who are wondering, the "southeast" corner is the empty part with no rails, closest to the high line, to the right of my 5th picture, and directly in front of the last.

Bob, which pic shows the final design? It's the second one isn't it, cause in the first one the difference between the towers doesn't look like 86 meters

hmmm. try no to think. Know for sure. Manhattan is still 2-3 x more skyscrapers than Hong Kong at present, china's most skyscraper density megacity.

By 2015, NYC is adding atleast 6-7 more supertalls or near supertall. all is good. No city can beat NYC anytime soon. although, Dubai is trying very hard

Looking at the pictures, it seems so far from where I thought it would be. I was looking forward for it being closer to the 1WTC. That in my opinion would really make New Yorks the skyline rockin!!


Also is this going to be taken out of Proposed Supertalls????

It's more in midtown than downtown.


This year has a nice list of under construction towers.

sanity prevails

instead of wasting valuable hudson yards on building a New Jets Stadium that is clearly not affordable if it ever happened.

we get these scissors design skyscrapers. Bring it on. I'm lovin' it.

Hong Kong beats New York in every category over 150m.

If you count all 100m+ buildings, it's...
Hong Kong 2354
New York 794

If you just count high-rise buildings, over 35m
Hong Kong 7685
New York 5924

Kind of knew this already about the asia skyscraper boom.

Maybe its just the Manhattan affect. that super high NYC density makes it look clearly more imposing than HK & Dubai can ever look.

How did you 'kind of know' that already when you just said the opposite?
It has been true for at least 10-15 years as well (Hong Kong was a sea of skyscrapers far before Shanghai and Beijing ever boomed). Anyway it's due to Hong Kong's style of residential building which is basically a thin tall apartment tower whereas Manhattan and Brooklyn are full of lower fatter tenement housing.
