    www.curbed.com does a great job of following development in major cities

    Chicago is off the charts right now in terms of proposed mega projects and what is under construction

    Early stage construction / site prep is underway for Austin's next tallest building. It's fantastically boring.

    Per this Instagram page with really bad grammar, the Grand Hyatt project in Manhattan is currently slated to be 503M tall. It would be the 1st building in this hemisphere to crack 500M.
