The skyscraper is one type of urban space that is home to offices, restaurants, retail, viewing galleries, lifts, lobbies, rooftops and shared spaces. In 2030, city skylines will have new skyscrapers. By 2025, the city of London will be home to 10 new, tall buildings. New York has multiple skyscrapers currently under construction, including The Spiral in the new Hudson Yards district, which will house vaccine maker Pfizer’s headquarters when it is completed in 2024. The emergence of new skyscrapers will again play a visual role in the story of cities.
