New York City Skyline

New-York-City-SkyscrapersNew York City is constantly evolving as new skyscrapers are erected. One example is Hudson Yards, a huge new development in Manhattan, valued at $20bn. The project – engineered by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group – should be finished within the next four years and will feature offices, stores, restaurants, parks and more. Located between 10th and 12th Avenues, and running from 30th to 34th Street, those using the complex will be able to access it from an extension of the No. 7 subway line.

Also in the pipelines is the Nordstrom Tower. Due to be completed in 2018, this will measure 1,775 feet high and will be at 225 West 57th Street. Designed by Adrian Smith (who is famous for designing the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in downtown Dubai), the Nordstrom Tower is set to be the world’s tallest residential structure – 300 feet higher than anything else in Midtown (although a foot shorter than One World Trade Center).

Clearly, over the next few years New York’s skyline is going to continue its process of evolving.
