The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat has released a new research study called New York: The Ultimate Skyscraper Laboratory, which utilizes data to “develop graphic features showing the progression of tall building development in New York City.”

The Timeline of Skyscrapers in New York City Region 1906-2018 graphic illustrates “how skyscraper construction aligned with social or political events in history” in the context of key events, for example, building inactivity around the period of World War II.

Through interactive features, the study shows trends in skyscraper construction over more than a century, delving into patterns of building location, purposes, historical contexts, and impacts.

“The study also depicts the skyline elevation of 57th Street, looking north, highlighting the four planned supertall buildings that are slated for completion by 2019,” as well as two pie charts that display 100-meter+ buildings by function and neighborhood.
