WHAT WERE, ARE, AND WILL BE NEW YORK’S TALLEST RESIDENTIAL TOWERS? (August, 2015)
These two charts, created by The Skyscraper Museum, line up buildings with the highest living spaces (and often prices!) in Manhattan’s competitive environment. Looking at past, present, and future residential towers The Skyscraper Museum compiled a list of the tallest residential skyscrapers in New York City.
Included in the definition of “residential” are several types of buildings where people live and sleep. Condominiums and cooperative apartment houses are one type. Another, hotels, are generally short-term residences, but historically in New York high-class hotels, such as the the Sherry-Netherland and the Waldorf-Astoria, have offered long-term leases, like apartments. Some buildings are hybrids, mixing hotels and apartments, offices, and retail within one structure. The towers in this “top ten” are color-coded according to their program: blue for residential, purple for hotel, green for office, and red for retail.
