Mcarts notes of developments and etc

Yeah that would be interesting to see. Probably would look more futuristic.

I’m curious because I’m experimenting with the glass for my recreation of those buildings in Minecraft. :smiley:

@Shane_Keena This is my recreation of Hudson Yards and Manhattan West. I rendered one photo with them having blue glass and the other with black glass.

Ooh that does look nice on some of them, especially 30 HY.
However, if they all have that scheme is kind of just make the place look, ehh what’s the word? Dreary? Boring?

Yeah, which is why it’s just an experiment on them lol. I might keep the black glass for both 30 and 10 Hudson Yards. I’m still deciding on the rest of the towers since 50 Hudson and the spiral isn’t shown here yet.

@mcart Here are two more renders, this time with 50 Hudson and the Spiral.


By the way I made the custom 3 Hudson Boulevard that is based on the John Hancock Center in Boston

From Cat-Attack on r/skyscrapers :
Tallest buildings - 1930s vompared to today.


Chrysler had a good run, but it won’t last on this list much longer. In fact in the next 5 years alone at least half this list or more will be pushed off ( Or they will be very close to being off the list )

Skyscrapers keep on getting taller and taller! :heart_eyes:

I’m gonna put this here to make sure I can keep track of it. Especially so it doesn’t get lost in the conversations of the thread. (Especially the one right after as it looks like it’s about to get really toxic)

Okay I’ve got 20 built or U/C so far. Please tell me if you see anything off or if I missed a building. I will start working on the proposed list/ prepared site / approved etc.
If all proposed/etc on list list got completed that would be 37 supertalls in NYC. And I’m pretty sure I’m still missing stuff off this list, as well as stuff that hasn’t been announced yet or is still in the planning stages.

In total after proposals are added:
1,700 ft + = 1
1,600 ft + = 1
1,500 ft + = 3
1,400 ft + = 5
1,300 ft + = 3 (if the twins were still here this would be 5)
1,200 ft + = 3
1,100 ft + = 3
1,000 ft + = 14
984 ft + = 3

Edits after looking at Emporis.

They won’t really be in order for height ( maybe )

  1. 1WTC - 1776 ft. 541 M (the only 500 M tower in the city, at least until Affirmation gets built. Had CPT got its spire or 175 not had its height reduced both would have been above 500M)
  2. CPT - 1,550 ft. 472 M
  3. Empire State Building - 1,454 ft. 443 M (Was at #7 without the antenna on the wiki list and CTBUH, but 1 WTC has its height included with the antenna so I chose the taller height)
  4. 111 West 57th St. - 1,428 ft. 435 M
  5. One Vanderbilt - 1,401 ft. 427 M
  6. 432 Park Avenue - 1,397 ft. 426 M
  7. 270 Park Avenue - 1,388 ft. 423 M
  8. 30 Hudson Yards - 1,270 ft. 387 M
  9. Bank of America Tower - 1,200 ft. 366 M
  10. 3 World Trade Center - 1,079 ft. 329 M
  11. The Brooklyn Tower - 1,073 ft. 327 M
  12. 53W53 - 1,050 ft. 320 M
  13. The Chrysler Building - 1,046 ft. 319 M
  14. The New York Times Building - 1,046 ft. 319 M
  15. The Spiral - 1,041 ft. 317 M
  16. 50 Hudson Yards - 1,011 ft. 308 M
  17. 35 Hudson Yards - 1,009 ft. 308 M
  18. One57 - 1,004 ft. 306 M
  19. One Manhattan West - 996 ft. 304 M

Proposed/Site Prepared/Approved
1,600 ft + = 1 (rip 175)
1,500 ft + = 2
1,400 ft + = 2
1,300 ft + = 1
1,200 ft + = 1
1,100 ft + = 3
1,000 ft + = 5
984 ft + = 2

  1. Affirmation Tower - 1,663 ft. 506 M
  2. 175 Park Avenue - 1,575 ft. 480 M
  3. Tower Fifth - 1,556 ft. 474 M
  4. 350 Park Avenue - 1,450 ft. 441 M
  5. 80 South Street - 1,436 ft. 437 M
  6. 2WTC - 1,348 ft. 410 M
  7. Penn 15 - 1,270 ft. 387 M ( May be old height? Haven’t seen anything new in a while )
  8. 45 Broad St. - 1,127 ft. 344 M (only slightly smaller than John Hancock)
  9. 570 Fifth Avenue - 1,101 ft. 335 M
  10. 41 West 57 Street. - 1,100 ft. 335 M
  11. 740-750 8th Avenue - 1,067 ft. 325 M
  12. 341 - 347 Madison Avenue - 1,050 ft. 320 M
  13. 262 Fifth Ave - 1,011 ft. 308 M
  14. 247 Cherry St. - 1008 ft. 307 M
  15. 143 - 155 East 60th Street - 1000 ft. + Around 305 M (looks like it might be a stale proposal)
  16. 520 Fifth Avenue - 995 ft. 303 M
  17. 3 Hudson Boulevard - 987 ft. 300 M (barely made it)

*If Macy’s tower is 900 feet on top of the already existing building it would be 1,071 ft, putting it at 11 in the proposed section. However I can not confirm it’s height or if it’s 800 ft, or what.

Had 175 Park not been arbitrarily butchered, it would be 2 - 500 M / 1,600fters going up.

But ouside of Manhattan (and now Brooklyn), no supertalls. We are seeing some height though, Jersey City has 1 900 fter, and 3 700 fters. (With 5 more possibly on the way and 2 600fters also possibly on the way)
Queens has 2 700fters and 1 600fter.
There isn’t much to talk about when it comes to the Bronx or Staten Island.

To add on to this there are undefined heights for several developments:
Penn Station Towers
Hudson Yards 2
PABT Development
UWS supertalls (ABC development. Enough zoning, FAR, etc for up to a 1,600 ft tower and a 1,200 ft tower. Though that is maximum and they will likely be smaller)

Just some corrections, The Spiral and 66 Hudson Boulevard are the same. And 57W57 should be 53W53

Thank you. Okay fixed. Btw I’m thinking about adding Manhattans 700s and 800s (as well as its 900s below 984 ft) but I dunno, it’s gonna be a lot.
