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.

No tower is ever too tall for New York. Just ask the folks who built the Empire State Building back in 1931. Only NIMBYs oppose anything of "Significant" height.

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 think Aluminum had NIMBYs in mind when he posted that.

It is an interesting question: how much is too much for NYC? I'm not sure I'd like to see a 5,000 foot monstrosity in the center of Manhattan. 1,500 feet on the other hand... hey, what's the problem?

I agree, a 5,000 footer would only be ideal in areas like Dubai, but NYC really needs a tower or 2 to compliment the ESB and the new WTC.

^^^That'll happen with Manhattan West, Tower Verre, and Hudson Yards.

BofA to me is just another tower. In other cities it might be a big deal (skyline wise), but in Midtown Manhattan it's simply just another tower. I'm saying that not to be critical, because I love this building, but its impact is limited.

I like to think of this building, along with NYT, as a taste of what is yet to come in the skyline.

Why does NYC not build anything taller? I mean it being the city of the world would it not seem logical then that it should have something comparable to the chicago spire? Or is terrorism still terrorizing developers?

All in good time. There are plenty of tall towers yet to come, and as I said, consider towers such as the BofA and NYT just a taste of what is yet to come. You have Hudson Yards, Manhattan West, Sherwood, GiraSole, Tower Verre, and plenty of potentials on the Westside. Not to mention to WTC, and the other Downtown tall ones on the way (Beekman, 80 South, 30 Park Place).

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.

Well, it WILL have something comparable to the Chicago Spire: the FT, "only" 88 percent the height of the CS! Not to mention, it will have 3 supertall/near-supertall companions, to boot... and a 900 footer practically across the street (99 Church Street). Too bad no other city in the world has anything comparable to THAT...
(not to mention that the FT is... you know... actually getting built)
