Tallest Residential Building: MoMA Tower

Jean Nouvel’s tower for MoMA has been so long coming, New Yorkers have almost forgot it was once the poster child in the city’s real estate development battle. Famously truncated by Amanda Burden, Mayor Bloomberg’s director of New York City Department of City Planning, the building will now reach 1,050 feet and has been ready for sales (quietly to appropriate buyers) as of spring 2015 even though the building is not built yet.

Previously, this title was held by 432 Park Avenue. Check out the full list of top 10 tallest buildings in NYC.
