YIMBY is counting down the 31 tallest skyscrapers under construction in New York City. Our annual list looks at projects that made a substantial amount of progress since the beginning of 2019. We start with 45 Park Place, a 43-story reinforced concrete superstructure topped out at 667 feet tall above the Manhattan neighborhood of Tribeca. The modestly slender skyscraper is designed by SOMA Architects with Ismael Leyva Architects serving as the executive and residential architect. The property is being developed by Sharif el-Gamal of Soho Properties. The Piero Lissoni-designed interiors are being handled and marketed by Corcoran Sunshine.
The reinforced concrete foundations for Davis Brody Bond‘s 21-story tech hub at 124 East 14th Street is taking shape and climbing toward street level. Located just east of Union Square, the development is officially known as the Union Square Tech Training Center. The 254,000-square-foot project will include a mix of affordable and market-rate office space for tech companies, retail, and dining facilities managed by Urbanspace. Private entities RAL Development and Suffolk Construction are also part of the project team.
A crowning “Welcome” at 30 Columbia Heights, better known as Panorama, is now in full view above the Brooklyn Heights waterfront. The new sign replaces the iconic Watchtower sign that stood as a signifier of the now-removed Jehovah’s Witness headquarters that formerly occupied the building.
