"Details revealed for supertall tower in New York" - Wall Street Journal

Plans have been unveiled for a 425-metre-high skyscraper designed by architect Rafael Viñoly for New York’s Park Avenue, which will become the tallest residential tower in the USA if built - The Wall Street Journal.

While buildings over 300 metres are currently classed as "supertall", the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat in Chicago published a report at the end of last year announcing "the era of the mega-tall tower" and predicting the 20 tallest buildings in the world by the year 2020 - more details in our earlier Dezeen Wire story.
