Just FYI, there is yet another proposal that would join this on on the BK skyline.

No. There will be about 417 apartments, 20% of which will be affordable housing.

3) CPT
4) 175 Greenwich
5) 53W53
6) One Vanderbilt
7) 1 MW
8) 35 Hudson
9) 30 Hudson
10) 3 Hudson

And we haven't even gotten our trousers off yet.

Still have the LES super talls to look forward too and some potential ones on 5th Avenue. Not to mention 8o South, Two Manhattan West, 45 Broad (which will start soon I hope), and it goes on.



From Hunsers List: Proposals/Site Prep



Out of all the buildings going up in NYC right now, which is a LOT, this one has got to be the one I'm most excited about. Not just because it's in my borough, but because this is the first supertalls outside of Manhattan. I think Brooklyn's skyline is really going to takeoff after this!

This is important because Manhattan is an island with very limited space, so eventually we were going to run out of room. But now our skyline is spreading past the physical boundaries of the island. And it's such a beast that even NJ is getting sucked in!

Hopefully LIC, Queens can get a supertall soon too!

The city is getting quite big. I was stuck on the BQE today in heavy traffic, and just waiting, gazing at the surroundings, the amount of cranes is ridiculous. The thing is that a lot of it occurs in clusters, so for a minute depending on the area your in, you might not think there's a lot, but there are hundreds of projects u/c. Many are just obscured by the skyscraper masses. Highrises and mid rises in the far flung areas of Queens near Great Neck. It's all over.

With LIC, I think a super tall will happen. I think the FAA amendment for the area is bs, and will be repealed on a case-by-case basis for a tower that exceeds 900 ft+.

DoBro is unique in the sense that it takes up quite a large area. If we were to isolate DoBro, it alone would probally be in the top 10 downtowns in the country. What has happened there, and now in LIC, is nothing short of apeshit development nuts. And now, we have the recent news of 80 Flatbush. Also looking forward to 420 Albee Square which is NYC's version of 181 Fremont.

I do recall a comedy thread I once read, saying that NYC had 21 cranes. Now that was funny.

The kicker joke in the comedy was that there were 6 residential project cranes. O man, thats some ballsy comedy right there.

I took this pic a little bit ago. I apologize for the crappy cell phone pic, but this sign was really exciting to see!

It's official!

They should put up a supersized rendering like the one at 111 W. 57th.

Affordable housing huh? That's rare, considering that so many of these skyscrapers tend to be used only by the rich. :o

Lots of newer developments have affordable housing. There is a boatload rising in Queens and in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn is a very important part of NYC.
Think of Brooklyn as the leg, Queens as the other leg, the Bronx as the head and Manhattan as the body (with lots of growth to come).

Manhattan will never run out of space, believe me!!
But this tower is going to compliment the city in such a way that everyone will notice it, no matter where they are in the city.

Jersey City has always been the borough than never was.
Perhaps we can trade Staten Island for Jersey City?

Fingers crossed.

I agree completely.
Keep in mind that skyscrapers across the East River will compliment Manhattan in such a way that it's going to be even more intense (as it should).

You can see they are advanced in demolshing the building, I think it is quite substantial. Maybe by summer it's gone.

For comparison

The one on the right is to only have a wall removed. The Flatbush Avenue building will come down.
