Armand Boudreaux at New York YIMBY mashed together the architectural renderings of some notably tall developments being built in Midtown (432 Park Avenue, 111 West 57th Street, 53 West 53rd Street, One57, and Nordstrom Tower) with Google Earth to give us a taste of what to expect. Among the new crop of towers is the Nordstrom Tower, which is slated to become the tallest residential building in the entire world, at 1,775 feet (1,479 feet without the spire), when it’s completed in 2018. Business Insider mentions that the 90-story One57 building is the most complete of the five structures and cost $1.4 billion to build (though developers are expected to gross about $2 billion in sales from the project).
