It’s not all about width on the skyline, but height. That’s what makes the towers special in New York, you’ve got to rise above the mass of buildings. If you look at the Hudson Yards, where the buildings are massive, and it seems everything is a supertall, that could have a “dampning” effect on the skyline. And closer to the Empire State, where a massive 15 Penn Plaza (now with massive friends) could get built, i think tunes would change on that. Even on the east side, where 270 Park (and friends) are coming to change the skyline even further, we may remember the days when the few superslenders had an impact on the skyline.

NEW YORK | Central Park Tower (Nordstrom)| 1,550 FT | 131 FLOORS

Looks like they've finally dropped the entire big crane from the roof with the smaller crane. Maybe they'll start breaking down the cargo elevator in the next few weeks and we'll see how skinny the building is from the east and west!

By FAR the crappiest and uninspiring of the bunch. At least the other crappy towers in the forefront to the right of pic had the decency to be shorter and less offensive to the masses.
