The supertall boom in New York City is happening. Although we've seen a few different visualisations of how this might look, here's a series of brand-new images that puts the changing skyline in perspective, with two dozen proposed or under-construction supertalls that will irrevocably change the New York City skyline by 2018.
Over at CityLab, Kriston Capps posts this series of renderings from City Realty, which focuses on the superskinny additions to West 53rd Street, but you can also see the cluster of supertalls in the Financial District in the distance. After years of lagging behind other high-minded cites like Dubai and Mumbai, New York is back in the skyscraper race in a major way. [CityLab]
