Great list overall. However, some of the projects that you listed as U/C are not actually so. For example: One Vanderbilt is undergoing a site demolition and I believe 3 Hudson Blvd is still technically in site prep mode. Also 2 WTC and 520 5th don’t start construction until sometime early next year I believe. You should make two more sub-categories: site demolition and site prep just to avoid any potential misinformation.


#3

Great list, amigo!

Off the top of my head, we can’t forget the following (over 500’) . . .

15 Penn Plaza
45 Park Place (642’)
1st Avenue JDS towers
740 8th Avenue (Extell’s TS assemblage)
148 West 48th Street
721 7th Avenue
Marriott Edition (500’)
1656 Broadway (Qataris)
123 West 57th Street (Calvary Baptist Church)
41 West 57th Street (Hadassah)
45 Broad
42 Trinity

On the boards for the future:

650 Madison Avenue
The Grand Hyatt on 42nd Street
Hotel Roosevelt
assemblages that Vornado owns near Penn
Chetrit assemblage near Penn

Great job Robert. I like it.


#5

Thanks, gents.


#6

Incredible list! Amazing time for NYC. Isn’t 1 WTC 1368’ to the roof?

Also, I hope one of the proposals ends up breaking 600 meters. It’s about time NYC get’s a megatall to the roof.

That’s 116 towers over 500’.

By comparison, the entire city of Chicago has 113 completed buildings over 500’.

We are essentially building an entire Chicago on top of New York City.


#10

Its truly incredible. I think Chicago ranks 5th in the world in terms of skyscrapers. Certain sites like HY phase 2 will add even more and could expand the numbers. If we consider the effect that Jersey City has on the region, its even more. Can’t wait for Newark to start up. One city that’s vastly overdue. There’s a couple of sites along the S.Bronx and North Queens water front that are prime candidates for Astoria Cove like project(s). If the city steps up its affordable housing, there may be towers 500’ or greater that have numerous affordable units. Only accelerating as time goes by.


#11

Wow! nice work Lion!


#12

Great job. Thank you for the information. It’s amazing.


#13

Thanks, amigo!


#14

Does anyone here know if there’s a way we can create a new part of the website devoted to an actual list of the tallest buildings in NYC? Not a forum topic, but an actual database page. It would be similar to Wikipedia, but exclusive to this website. We could have a section for:

  1. Built
  2. Under Construction
  3. Proposed
  4. Destroyed

Name Year Built Address Top Floor Height (f/m) Roof Height (f/m) Top Height (f/m)

Empire State Building 1931 350 5th Ave, New York, NY 10118 1224’ 1250’ 1454’


#15

I remember Nikolai mentioning the potential for a map section? IDK if he’s still pursuing that; for the front page that is, separate from the forums.


#16

Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. Something on the front page, not in the forums. This site deserves its own database


#17

Nice List fellas!!!

I want to get into the action!! Here’s mine. :smiley:

This is truly, the Age of Ramses!


#18

The average height just keeps increasing. Even if we look at the towers that rose during 2000-2010, and compare them to 2010-2020*, the change is apparent.

  • Who knows what we will get in 4 years, but its looking sweet.

666 5th looks exciting.


#19

I think the 2020s will yield a 2000 foot tower.
As engineering costs and construction costs continue to drop, it will eventually make a 2000 foot tower economical to build.


#20

If we ever get a 2000 footer you can bet it’s fonna be residential. Also slowly but surely in the far future with the internet and new technologies many of the office buildings will be reconverted to residential as people work at home.
