Dubai's getting up there, too! 20 years went by and BAM! It's gonna be the start of the 2020s!
Its going to be interesting, the next decade. Manhattan in general, along with the outer boroughs on average have seen an increase in both development bulk and height. Pound for pound, we are seeing in Manhattan larger developments, and ones that are on average taller versus 10-20 years ago.

Were bound to see many, many more super talls. Given the demand, future demand outlook, and the price just to build, its a matter of financial necessity to build taller, and to extract as much usable square footage out of "X" parcel or assemblage.
