Nice diagram. That's quite a few supertalls.

I didn't consider that.
So hopefully every free place will be used for the construction of supertalls.

One57 should have started on its fifth setback by now - it is the most dramatic of its setbacks I'd say.

I'm not sure what makes you think NYC can't go Dubai, it can certainly get close. If developers continue to work hard and people stop complaining about "loosing now useless old decaying buildings" then it is surely possible.

Because people in NYC don't build for no reason.

Why would NYC want to look like Dubai? In terms of supertalls it has like 10 upcoming ones within the next decade or so at least. Do people read any threads here?

NYC being 10 times more populated than Dubai (2 million metro vs 20 million) has faaar more midsize high and low rises to make it look more like a city than say another vegas in the desert.

Not trying to rag on Dubai too much but it's buildings are also mostly empty, we do NOT want that for NYC.

I would like to see more supertalls in the city. Nothing crazy though 1,050 being the average.

A good balance of buildings from the 900-1200 foot range is what NYC needs, maybe a 1600 footer somewhere too.

Building a supertall on every plot of land in Manhattan would be chaotic. Nobody has taken the time to mention the sheer population required to make that practical. We're talking a daytime population of at least 20 million in Manhattan to occupy that amount of space. That would kill the subway system, clog the streets, clog the sidewalks, and absolutely make Manhattan an unattractive place to live. I say let's add some density and give the World Trade Center some friends downtown. I'd like to see more condos going up in uptown, and by uptown I mean above 95th street. I'd like to see all of Manhattan be middle-class or above. I'm sorry but the current state of Upper Manhattan in many areas is a monstrosity. LEt's build 300 footers throughout that area, and change things up. Add some more supertalls to midtown, maybe sprinkle some 300-500 footers in around Union Square, Chelsea, Madison square park, etc. to add some density when viewing from Jersey or Brooklyn or Queens. Then we are talking!

sidenote- I like what's going on in Long Island City and across the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn. Good to see some skyscrapers sprouting in the other boroughs. I'd also like to see the bad parts of the Lower East Side get developed. Some of those areas around Stuyvesant Town are crap! (As is Stuyvesant Town)
