While it seems like news arrives every day of another supertall tower that will rise in Manhattan, the effect of the permit filings and various technical minutiae announcing developers' plans don't quite capture the full effect of how the city's skyline will actually change. Enter VisualHouse, who's created a rendering that shows what Manhattan's southern half will look like in just 15 yearsthat is, barring any major projects that have yet to be announced. While the rendering itself dazzles with a nighttime cityscape that almost looks real, it provides a valuable view of the various projects that will usher New York City into its next iteration as home to some of the world's tallest buildings.
