    YIMBY Nordstrom Tower

These skyscrapers will transform the Manhattan skyline

New renderings show what midtown will look like after the new construction

The only skyline that can best Manhattan's is, well, Manhattan's. Or, rather, the metropolis's skyline of the future. If all goes according to the plans of midtown's real-estate developers, a handful of immensely tall buildings will be added to the existing skyscrapers around 57th Street over the next few years. Illustrator Armand Boudreaux has drawn up renderings for YIMBY, which show how the skyscrapers will transform views from all angles of the city, offering a glimpse of the postconstruction skyline.

Among the buildings included in Boudreaux's renderings are Jean Nouvel's MoMA-adject project at 53 West 53rd Street. and the luxury condo building sprouting up at 111 West 57th Street. The most prominent—and talked-about as of late—is the Nordstrom Tower. When the building is finished, the roof will reach 1,479 feet with a spire peaking at 1,775 feet. It'll be the largest residential building in the world—and, most importantly to New Yorkers, add some additional (and perhaps unwanted) shade to Central Park.
