This is also a boom rundown thread to report any updates, especially since there's a 600 FT minimum requirement for NY threads now.

Thought you guys might find this interesting even though you are squabbling over what happened to the old thread. This is a map I painstakingly made of the historic districts in midtown and downtown in which no new skyscrapers can go up and historic preservation is to be upheld. There was no map showing all of the preservation areas together so I made one and it is very very accurate. There are always debates on these forums over the preservation of old buildings and this shows you that NYC will still have plenty of preserved areas for generations to come. The green areas are newly added preservation areas. If you guys want a map of all the boroughs and such I can make one. It will take about a day or so to do it as locating the maps is hard and then putting them on google Earth accurately is even harder.

Fascinating map. Thanks for that. Clearly illustrates why 56 Leonard was allowed to be almost 800 feet tall, as it's to be located on a site sandwiched between two historical areas.

Thanks so much, I updated it up above because there were are a couple new districts added since I had made it and they are in green.

Well I went to the NYC historic commission website and they have individual maps of each historic district but they didnt have one of all of them together so it wasnt of much use. I then traced the maps onto google earth.

I'm trying to add detailed descriptions for each building to make the thread more comprehensive. Added just the stuff for the WTC as a trial run. I think the format of thread name + info + 1 pic (to keep it less cluttered) should suffice. What do yall think?

edit: updated the rest of the supertalls

Tower Verre must be built! It's seriously the most exciting proposal in the city IMO.

Rounded up whatever projects above 600 ft seemed to be missing and listed them in height order. Next step - modifying each in the same way as the supertalls and referencing threads for buildings under 600 ft.

I guess the proof of the pudding will be the Hudson Yards development: really, it's probably NYC's last chance to break city height records for at least a generation. I've love to see someone "stretch the envelope" and put up a full 2,000 footer...

But remember, we don't want a "Hong Kong on the Hudson" now, do we

Heh, not bad. It may be somewhat basic but it's a start - added it to the first post for general reference. It sort of seems haphazard right now though. Maybe instead of having the map color coded (which makes it rather difficult to find certain projects unless you already know where to look, and besides some colors don't stand out as well as others) you should stick to identifying the projects with a circle of a standard distinctive size and color (orange seems to work well), and differentiate the projects using number labeling instead. Give it a shot if you're up for it.

Manhattan will get its share of tall buildings, even after this boom comes to an end. It's not that developers don't want to build the 'Chicago Spires' of the world here, it's just not as a 'walk in the park' as in other world cities. I think we are currently getting a handsome amount of highrise development on all calibers and should be satisfied.

Manhattan doesn't need a 2,000' building to stake a claim for anything or prove anything. There is no doubt in my mind that New York will have a building taller than the FT, if not a few down the road. I'm not worried about it.

^^^If it passed NIMBY opposition then I would think it's smooth sailing from here on in, unless I'm missing something. I personally look forward to this building. It's something this city has never seen before in a highrise, and I think it'll be healthy for the skyline to add a little twist (especially in that part of town where you have box after box).

Yes, Tower Verre needs to be built. It is one of the most interesting and different buildings that I have ever seen. It may never become a NYC icon to the masses but in the architectural world it will be an icon.

I am actually making a map for the entire city and it will take me probably 20 hours or more to complete it. I am working on it right now, but how should I label the buildings? Because, numbering then will not work too well because the numbers will be obscured and I know that color coding them will not work too well either because I am going to run out of colors. How then should I label where the buildings are?
