Highrise/skyscraper Development Lists - All U.S. Cities Applicable

Question for all members:

What do you think about this:

x | FT | FLOORS

WHERE X CAN BE:

  1. “Borough Name”

Examples:

  1. BROOKLYN | 286 Ashland Place | 364 FT | 32 FLOORS
  2. MANHATTAN | 432 Park Avenue | 1,397 FT | 85 FLOORS

ect.

Just want to get a survey up. Are some for it? Against it? Think it will help in organization?

Something that only applies to NYC based development. So in the case of Jersey City, “X”, will say: Jersey City

That’s a great idea, Chris!

I would like that Chris!

Yeah sort of a database. It can just be at the top of this thread, or a new one.

Manhattan
432 Park Avenue 1396’

I think Manhattan should be NEW YORK since that’s unferstood.

NEW YORK | 432 Park Ave | 1,397 FT | 85 FLOORS

While the rest gets their rightful designation.

BROOKLYN | 340 Flatbush Ave | 1,066 FT | 70 FLOORS

QUEENS | 29-27 Queens Plaza North | 915 FT | 77 FLOORS

JERSEY CITY | 99 Hudson St | 900 FT | 76 FLOORS

All, please see below on how I’d do this list. I’m thinking we can put it on the top of this page and then just pin it to the top of the forum. The name of each tower is hyperlinked to that towers page on our forums. We list each tower by area in height order and a status of where it stands construction wise. I started a small sample in Manhattan and added in the JDS site in Brooklyn.

Manhattan
Central Park Tower (Nordstrom Tower) [U/C] 1550’
111 West 57th Street (Steinway Tower) [U/C] 1428’
30 Hudson Yards [U/C] 1296’

Brooklyn
340-366 Flatbush Avenue 1066’

Queens

Jersey City

All Other Areas Including Fort Lee, White Plains, Newark, Etc.

That’s a pretty awful diagram in that they make 1 WTC look even more gargantuan than it already is. Look at the ESB in comparison (the antenna of the ESB is actually ~100 feet higher than 1WTC’s roof) or how 432 is shorter in roof height (not true!).

This is much more accurate; credit to the SSP Diagram Section:

Just an update: I’ll be working on two huge compilations in the weeks to come. Will literally cover 100’s of projects. :wink:

Actually, I want to make it the largest on the net. Even bigger than the SSP ones, and if you’ve ever seen those, it covers over 1700+ projects for NYC.

I think some of you have seen the high and mid/low threads on ssp. Well, they are coming here. But it will include more!

Will keep you guys updated. :blush:

NOW:

From you guys… any feedback. Maybe something you would like to see?

O and I’ll also be organizing a lot of things like threads. Will be going through many and changing the status. I know some are complete already. Housecleaning essentially.

What’s the chance of the Shop tower over in the Hudson Yards area being developed soon? Or is a many years from now tower??

They way things are going hopefully soon. SHoP has a couple of towers in the pipeline right now. Hidden from view, and stuck inside a drawing board or autocad.

Credit goes to ssp user CIA.

This being a list for Jersey City aka NYC’s Taiwan. JC is unofficially part of NYC, but they want to deny it. With a boom like this, it should be the 6th Borough.

The Donald talking some real estate. Found it interesting.

he gives some really good insights to NYC real estate.

This is pretty cool. A giant compilation of pre war towers built and with images from 1874-1900.

Call it a prewar grid.
