Citigroup owns some of the most iconic office buildings in the city. Not only is there its headquarters at 601 Lexington, with its jagged roof and gravity-defying base, but also Queens’s tallest tower and a waterfront monolith in Tribeca. As Citi prepares to leave that last home and go in search of some 2.6 million square feet, the Journal reveals that “Citigroup managers had discussions with several landlords about developing a new tower for the company.” While the bankers just as well might stay put at 388 Greenwich, this got us thinking about exactly what on-the-horizon towers Citi could wind up in.
While this is far from a comprehensive list of the commercial development coming to town—and no doubt more will be announced in the years to come—these are the projects that first came to mind. If you think of any good ones we forgot—maybe Solow’s East Side project, or some new towers around Moynihan Station—do let us know in the comments.
