5. 432 Park Avenue, 1398ft (426,1m), Under Construction (height not final; probably 1420ft (432m))

6. Two World Trade Center, 1349ft (411,2m), Under Construction (currently on hold)

7. Hudson Yards North Tower, 1337ft (407,5m), Approved

8. The Girasole, 1313ft+ (400m+), Approved (likely to exceed 1400ft)

Exciting times!

Amazing to see the once tallest building in NYC, the Empire State Building will likely be dropped to fourth tallest in a decade or so. A 2,000 footer is now realistically on the horizon.
