The images were created by visualisation studio CityRealty to show how Jean Nouvel's proposed 320-metre skyscraper at 53 West 53rd Street – now under construction – will sit amongst the numerous other towers underway along the south-west of Central Park.

Many of the new additions are being built along the so-called Billionaire's Row on West 57th Street, from the skinny 411-metre tower by SHoP Architects to Christian de Portzamparc's 306-metre One57 and the 539-metre Nordstrom Tower by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill.
