Highlights of note include 432 Park Avenue, which, at 1,396 square feet, clocks in as the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere, according to The New York Times. Via 57 West, the pyramid-shaped residential building designed by starchitect Bjarke Ingels, is also visible, as is the Nordstrom Tower, a planned 1,550-foot high rise that will house 155 condominiums and the eponymous department store. 

Here, the Hudson Yards development, which some predict will bring nearly $19 billion to the city's economy.

Also worth pointing out? The rise of the Hudson Yards, which is poised to be a design lover's dream—and a financial hotspot, too. When complete, Crain's predicts the neighborhood will bring in about $18.9 billion to the city's economy—more than the GDP of Iceland.
