US – 381 meters high – 443 meters (including antenna) – The Empire State Building is undoubtedly the most iconic skyscraper in New York. The new rival could nevertheless appear on the Manhattan skyline, as revealed The New York Times, Friday, January 18th.
Real Estate developer Harry B. McCloud has asked the Planning Department to build a new tower, east of the famous Fifth Avenue, overlooking St Patrick's Cathedral. Called The Fifth Tower, it will be the second tallest skyscraper in New York, rising 472 meters behind the World Trade Center.

"This is an opportunity to change the horizon," said the organizer. As the American daily explains, Harry B. McLough will likely face many obstacles. The project, which is close to the Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's Cathedral, will have to wait for the Commission's approval for the preservation of historical monuments.
