Rendering by Thomas Koloski via NY Yimby

As the incredible animation above shows, the tall tower building boom isn’t just restricted to Manhattan. First spotted by NY Yimby, this future projection created by Thomas Koloski reveals a very different silhouette than the one we know today—and arguably a far more striking and attractive one at that. But what might be the most surprising thing about this rendering is that it’s not too far off from becoming a reality. Indeed, what you’re looking at is expected to materialize over just the next four years.

While most of the renderings we’ve reported on so far zoom in much closer on the city, Koloski’s comprehensive panoramic view gives us a better idea of which towers will be the most visually impactful from afar.

On the Jersey side, China Overseas America, Inc.’s 99 Hudson Boulevard, designed by Perkins Eastman Architects, is the most notable addition at 900 feet; while on the Brooklyn end JDS’ SHoP-designed 9 DeKalb Avenue (or 340 Flatbush Avenue) stretches the tallest at over 1,000 feet—though its figure is far slimmer than its neighboring up-and-comers.

In Manhattan, where according to Yimby what’s in the pipeline will “more than double the island’s number of supertalls,” based on the above perspective, Downtown’s height can be attributed to 80 South Street, 45 Broad, and 2 and 3 World Trade Center, with 2’s largely attributed to its unique setbacks—though that is not to discount its 1,340-foot height.
