[SLIDESHOW] A glimpse into the future: The New York skyline, 2018
New York’s skyline is changing. In fact, by 2018 it could be almost unrecognizable. Among the new skyscrapers decorating the sky over Manhattan is the MoMa tower, One Vanderbilt, Extell’s Nordstrom Tower and Vornando Tower.
French architect Jean Nouvel designed the MoMa Tower. The building will stand amid several other Midtown-area projects that are slated for completion in 2018.
Other major construction projects include One Vanderbilt, 53 West 53rd Street, 432 Park Avenue, 225 West 57th Street and 111 West 57th Street, all scheduled for completion by 2018 also.
Finally construction at Central Park South and West is also expected to be finished in the next three years, the development includs new buildings such as Extell's Nordstrom Tower, or 225 West 57th Street, which is expected to stand 1,775 feet tall. Also visible next to it is Vornado's 220 Central Park South, which will rise over 900 feet.
