View of some of the world's tallest residential buildings from a high-floor apartment at Trump International View of some of the world's tallest residential buildings from a high-floor apartment at Trump International
New York real estate trends come and go, but one thing that stays constant is developers', designers', and buyers' appetites for tall buildings and the views enjoyed from them. Many of us have admired the buildings in the iconic yet ever-changing skyline, and some offer the chance to go one step further and live in the world's most famous skyline.

At the height of lockdown, some wondered if the pandemic would spell the end of multi-family living in high-rises where privacy and the space for social distancing were at a premium. However, that does not appear to have come to pass: CityRealty's High-Rise Index shows that prices in buildings 50 stories and higher have gone up 7.5% in the past year, and such buildings are regular fixtures among the top sales. We go inside availabilities in the tallest residential buildings of several notable neighborhoods, from DUMBO to Billionaires' Row. We also take a look at soaring new residential towers on the rise as we wait to see what the next development cycle will bring to our neighborhoods.

The Sutton Place section of Midtown has not historically been home to extremely tall buildings, but Sutton Tower brings a soaring edifice with dramatic coffered niches to the local skyline (much to the chagrin of some locals). There will be no more than three apartments per floor, and no more than two units per floor above the 36th story. Amenities are expected to include a third-floor spa and pool, a fourth-floor fitness center, a fifth-floor game room, children's playroom, party room, and sport simulator, and a lounge, screening room, and terrace on the sixth floor. A teaser site is live, and a sales launch is widely anticipated.

The empty lot at the southwest corner of Fifth Avenue and 29th Street has sat quiet for three years, but excavation work began in fall 2021 and construction is underway. The new tower will make an immediate impact on the Fifth Avenue skyline between the Flatiron Building and the Empire State Building, and usurp Madison House (see above) as the tallest tower in NoMad. All units will be either simplexes or duplexes, and amenities will include a fitness center, a common terrace, a swimming pool, and a roof deck with views nearly equivalent to those seen on the Empire State Building's 86th-floor observatory.

Construction on 45 Broad Street began in 2017 with grand plans for eight floors of office space, 209 condominiums, and amenities like an indoor pool, fitness center, outdoor garden, and library. However, in January 2020, the developers put the project on hold due to market conditions. They have not returned to it yet, and previous construction equipment has been removed. However, Robert Gladstone, owner of developer Madison Equities, told The New York Times, "We will live to fight another day."
