With the influx of planned supertall skyscrapers promising to soon change the very shape of New York City’s skyline, a new rendering depicts just what that altered cityscape will look like in a matter of 15 years.

The rendering, designed by creative agency VisualHouse, shows the transformation in store for the Manhattan skyline by 2030. It also portrays how a number of supertall projects currently in development will fit into the skyline upon completion.

Projects depicted include Extell Development’s Nordstrom Tower, SL Green Realty’s One Vanderbilt, JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group’s 111 West 57th Street and Hines’ 53 West 53rd Street, according to Curbed.

A Community Board 5 task force called earlier this month for a moratorium on the construction of supertall skyscrapers in the vicinity of 57th Street. [Curbed]Rey Mashayekhi
