One57 - the long-awaited, 90-story residential skyscraper that cost $1.4 billion to build - is almost finished, and Extell's Nordstrom Tower will eventually rise a vertigo-inducing 1,775 feet (including the tower's spire), making it the tallest residential building in the world.There are also developments in the works at 111 West 57th St., 432 Park Ave., and 53 West 53rd St. that will dramatically change the skyline.
This is what the skyline will look like in 2020, facing south from the Central Park Zoo. Of these five buildings, the 90-story One57 (second from the right) is the most complete. It cost $1.4 billion to build, and developers are expected to gross about $2 billion in sales from the project. It's on target to be finished this year.
