3 is of a different style, but it would be in the running if we include everything. I'm sure it could win altogether.

^ Very nice info! Love how the floor count jumped in all boroughs, especially in Queens (LIC!?). Manhattan is approaching 20!

Btw I just read your answer in the SF thread ... man I'm sloppy. University is keeping me pretty busy for now, unfortunately. But I'm still planning on doing that Shenzhen list.
Also, it would be really great to start a new NY highrise thread. It's a lot of work though ... :-/

EDIT: in the next couple of weeks I'll start to integrate Jersey City projects (200m+) into this thread. An emerging city skyline just across the river can't be ignored.

The averages for Queens are Brooklyn are accurate. Considering most of these new permits are literally within the 6-7 floor range. Higher floor counts, usually 10-12 helped lift the average. Along with 6 floors, the 8 floor range is also a popular one.

Whats amazing is that those units are just for 2014, and 2015 looks like theres no stop to the high amount of permit applications per day. 2014 definitely witnessed some incredible revelations in the supertall game. Q1 will see Nordstrom renderings.

The highrise count of the city is over 6000 now if we consider 12 floors/100 feet or higher. Factor in the Gold Coast, and the nearby satellites, and its in the range of 6300. (2nd in the world, after Hong Kong))

Close to 300 high rises under construction and proposed. Many starting up q1 and q2 of 2015.

A 95-storey tower porposal at 99 Hudson St in Jersey City, falling 50 feet short of supertall status, is expected to be approved by the Planning Board tonight. Hopefully this is first of many towers of similar heights to come and maybe 2015 will bring one above 1000 ft.

I recently made the mistake of viewing the SSP diagram for Yujiapu (Tianjin), China. They appear to have several buildings under construction/proposed that exceed 550 meters. To add to this, I'm reading that this new "city" is to become a Manhattan replica. I am quite distraught over these findings and am reaching out in desperation to anybody who feels qualified enough to help me with gathering the following information:

-will these buildings in China be actually built, at least to the height I've mentioned?
-will NYC/JC skyline ever be able to compete with these heights?

^ I wouldn't worry. Tianjin is actually cooling down and many projects are on hold. The city has 1 completed supertall, 1 has T/O, and 3 are U/C. Rose Rock is on hold btw.
Compare those numbers with New York, and you'll get your answer. Only Dubai and Shenzhen can contend with NYC.

PS: and it's Chongqing which looks like Manhattan (due to its topography).

One only has to look at where a lot of the Chinese investment is heading these days, too.

I think some of the low hanging fruit has been picked, so it will cool down from what it was in the last decade.

I'll be away (vacation) and busy (exams) for 3 weeks. Please feel free to post any major news regarding New York skyscrapers (200m+) and especially info on the supertall front.

Thanks.

New York has two supertalls that make the list.

=============================

World’s Longest Commutes, by Elevator




Quote:
Luxury high-rises are all the rage, with colossal apartment towers sprouting across the globe. But while living a quarter of a mile in the sky is no doubt thrilling, the commute downstairs can be a doozy.

Just how far do residents of these super-tall towers travel every year? Spread Sheet set out to measure the vertical commute.

Upon completion in 2016, Mumbai’s World One tower will be the tallest purely residential building in the world, topping out at 1,450 feet, according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, a nonprofit that tracks the official heights of tall buildings.

Assuming one trip down and up each day, a top-floor dweller would cover around 200 miles a year in elevator travel. Make that two trips a day (say, you forgot to buy milk) and you’re up to 400 miles a year, slightly longer than the drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco.

The resident on the top floor of 1,397-foot-tall 432 Park Avenue in Manhattan making two round-trips a day would log around 356 elevator miles each year—the equivalent of two trips out to the Hamptons and back. Someone living in a third-floor walk-up in Midtown Manhattan, on the other hand, does around 5.5 miles a year—not even enough to get through Queens.

To keep trips as quick as possible, many towers use high-speed elevators, which can travel at up 2,000 feet a minute. These elevators use high-tech materials like polyurethane-coated belts and advanced alloys in their braking systems, but the main difference is size, says Jim Fortune, principal at elevator consultancy Fortune Shepler Saling, which has worked on super high-rises, including Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building at 2,722 feet. A motor driving a typical 500-foot-a-minute elevator can fit in about 27 cubic feet, he says. On the other hand, a high-speed motor like those in a super tower takes up about half a room.
