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.

Yes, the Sunnyside Yards rezoning is heading through the ULURP process, which is the legal mechanism for rezoning.

Look at it as creating a new job field, the NYC train pushers! Job qualifications: Bench/squat 300/500 lb (because its America, so extra weight of folks). Preferred Qualifications: Steroid users with anger issues.

Some positive "recent" (July 29, 2020) news on 350 Park:


Quote:
Blackstone, headed by CEO Stephen Schwarzman and president Jon Gray, has asked a handful landlords to submit proposals for a new headquarters in Midtown and the Far West Side.

Among the sites under consideration is a supertall office tower on Park Avenue proposed by Vornado Realty Trust and Rudin Management. The two have floated the idea of developing properties they separately own into a 1,450-foot-tall, 1.68 million-square-foot tower at 350 Park Avenue.

The project is particularly attractive to Blackstone, sources said, because the site sits catty-corner to the firm’s current headquarters at Rudin Management’s 345 Park Avenue. Between that location and another office at Boston Properties’ 601 Lexington Avenue, Blackstone occupies about 800,000 square feet on leases that expire in 2027.

NEW YORK | 350 Park Avenue | 1,450 FT | 70 FLOORS

Mass models of the old JDS proposal. But given the square footage, gives us an idea of what in theory could rise.
