For our 20th birthday, we're looking ahead and dreaming of how the city will change over the next two decades. Maybe New York in 2035 will be drone traffic, jet packs and space elevators, but here’s what we know: The skyline will have about 30 new buildings, at least according to creative agency Visualhouse, which provides renderings for many big developers. They created the one above just for us.
“With the exception of the west side of the Hudson Yards and 15 Penn Plaza, these buildings have all gone through their permitting and landmark processes,” says Visualhouse managing director and founder Robert Herrick. “The exciting time is when we bring them together to ask, ‘How are they all going to impact the skyline?’ Not all of these will stand the test of time. Some will become the next Chrysler Building, but some will just be glass boxes."
