Is that a condo at the very top? If so, that would be sick, with those huge windows.

Skyscraper Foes Raising Money to Fund Review for Sutton Place Rezoning Plan in New York
New York City, United States – 23 October 2015

Quote:
A coalition of politicians and anti-development activists is looking to pay its own way to push through proposed rezoning that would limit the construction of new skyscrapers in the Upper East Side neighborhood's residential areas.

Councilman Ben Kallos is working with the East River 50s Alliance – a community group that coalesced around an effort to defeat plans for a 900-foot (274-meter) skyscraper in Sutton Place – to raise the money and dole it out to the analysts, planners, and lawyers that the activists will need in order to usher a rezoning bid through the city’s uniform land-use review process (ULURP).

A grassroots stab at a ULURP rezoning is an unusual tactic, as most rezonings come at the request of the city or an individual developer looking to build a project not allowed under an area’s current regulations.

If the Department of City Planning certifies the group’s application for rezoning, the plea will then go for public review by the Community Board, the Borough President, the City Planning Commission, the City Council, and, finally, the mayor.

Beyond an application fee of about $30,000 for a neighborhood rezoning of more than 500,000 square feet (46,000 square meters), a ULURP does not cost the applicant anything. But in order to make sure the application is filled out correctly and in order to ensure that an entity is making a good case for the rezoning, entities generally must hire land-use lawyers and other experts to help move the rezoning through the necessary hoops, according to a Department of City Planning spokesman.

Neighbors opposed to the Sutton Place tower plan met in July to begin organizing against developer Bauhaus Group which, thanks to current zoning regulations, is free to build the skyscraper as-of-right unless opponents can successfully impose height restrictions.

Bauhaus Group, is currently steaming ahead with the project, having bought up properties between 426 and 432 E. 58th St. in January for $32 million. In August the firm finished assembling the air rights necessary for the project, shelling out $37.9 million for the air rights from several nearby properties, according to a report by Curbed.

At the end of September, the Department of Buildings approved demolition applications for those properties, city records show.

Tall Buildings in Numbers
New York: The Ultimate Skyscraper Laboratory

A timeline of skyscraper completions in New York uncannily
resembles the boom and bust cycles of the United States in
the 20th and early 21st centuries. The most active year was
1931, when the fi nal excesses of the Roaring ‘20s were thrown
skywards and frozen in concrete and steel. The scarcity of
building materials clearly had their eff ects in the fl at World War
II period. The rise of multinational corporations may explain the
relative surge in skyscraper construction in the 1970s, even as
New York City itself endured its darkest fi nancial hours. Then
come the wild “Wall Street” years of the 1980s, followed by the
lagged eff ect of the early 1990s slump. The singular event of
9/11 did not have nearly the dampening eff ect on skyscraper
construction, compared to the fi nancial crisis of 2008-9. The
current boom demonstrates New York’s persistence as a
magnet for capital, and it’s standing as the ultimate skyscraper
laboratory over time.
EDIT: CTBUH say there are over 826 buildings over 100m in NYC. Chris, any thoughts? What's your count?

I'd say that's about right for the current buildings completed excluding contruction. I did a list a couple of months ago for the core and the proxies, but for the city limits of NYC, yeah, I'd say that's accurate. Although I like to include towers u/c over that height limit in the total count. Including demo because in the end, they are rising. I'd say for 100m+,. 860 seems closer to the value. This including some towers in LIC that are in demo and also some projects starting up along the Queens waterfront.

In terms of whats being touched for 100m+, certain renovations that add existing floors to structures could be included, but aren't.

I'd say at the rate we are going with construction, and many proposals having the groundwork in place for steel, 900 structures seems plausible for 2020. If not by 2018 to be bullish.

So with current complete and u/c (demo included), 860 is the value I'd bank on.

With numerous proposals that involve affordable housing along the Bronx/Queens waterfront kicking up in the next 2 years, 900 is in the cross hairs. Not to mention some lots that will be developed along HY, and property purchases from prominent developers in DoBro. Many of these large scale developers for housing including several towers equal/greater than 100m, which is not tall at all for this city.

If we want to cheat, add in JC with all thats going on and where almost at 900. Queens will be the next frontier for 100m plus. Pushing us over the 900 mark.

By 2016 a 700 foot tall tower won't even make the #top50 in NYC. That's insane! And by 2020 a 200m tall tower won't be in the #top100.

By the looks of it, 5 Beekman is officially T/O. Both spires have been installed.

111 Murray will be great considering how nice 50 West is looking.

We can also see 5 Beekman, Jenga Nation tower (56 Leonard), 10 Hudson, and 551 10th Avenue (to the right of 10 Hudson).

Did a little data mining using CTBUH to find out how much is u/c currently / topped out.

May be slightly incomplete, but it gives us an idea.





Update: Same list but for proposals. Again, slightly incomplete. Just from the high rise thread alone and the news that comes in on new proposals, many are missing that are over 14 floors.

Construction wise, many more should be included as a lot of sites in demo, especially in LIC, are in the process of seeing steel/caissons.

It think that actually works better with the complex honestly.

1340 was a visually awkward height compared to the other buildings.
