Don't need to go to Jersey!

As some has already stated Emporis is not always up-to-date nor do they have height figures of all buildings under construction, especially residentials.
In NYC I count 9 that will meet the 500 ft criteria currently under construction, they are:

1) 125 West 31 st ( Epic) - 648ft
2) 123 Washington St. ( 4 Albany St.) - 53 stories; 583ft
3) 6-12 Barclay St- 584 ft.
4) 15 Central Park West - 550 ft.
5) Goldman Sachs- 740 ft
6) Beekman Tower - ~860 ft.
7) New York Times - 853 ft. ( spire 1,142ft)
8) Sky House - 588 ft
9) Saya - 544- 604 ft.

The following UC have no reported height but could potentially surpass 500ft.

10) 15 Williams Street - 47 floors
11) Trump Soho - 45 floors
12) River Place - 57 floors
13) 785 8th Ave - 566ft (per NYC DOB)

There is also a building in Queens (near Citi-bank) that is UC and possibly going to be 600ft. but, I've read nothing definitive.
