Midtown has the benefit of having room to grow its forest of skyscrapers. Chelsea, NoMad, Hudson Yards, the Upper East and West Sides all support highrise construction. The neighborhoods flanking the financial district are all downzoned or historical, and the financial district itself is very, very small. Downtown will go taller, but it won't be expanding much unless they allow more landfill in the rivers.

Of course, they've never been or never will be equal in size. Just the last few years have seem to have tipped the balance even more so. with downtown losing some prominence on the entire skyline.
