With 15 skyscrapers 700 feet and taller currently under construction and another 19 proposed, Manhattan is expanding vertically and experiencing an unprecedented tall building boom. Several maps and infographics in National Geographic illustrate how the New York skyline could look in 2020 from various viewpoints as these under-construction and proposed towers become realized. The National Geographic feature even provides a closer at projects to watch, such as Hudson Yards, the 57th Street Corridor, and the World Trade Center Complex.
The feature includes roll-over icons that reveal basic information about the city’s tallest and most iconic buildings, like height and expected date of completion.
