A Map of the Present and Future of Lower Manhattan

An online map developed by the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center documents change in New York City, and shows what development and construction is to come over the next eight years.

The group has taken a vast database of construction and planning data to provide a day-by-day look at development in Lower Manhattan -- all the way into 2018.

The group has "transferred their existing database-including building type, owner, developer, architect, start and end dates, and 3D building models-to Google Maps. Google Earth and the 4D time slider, which uses time stamps on SketchUp models to provide a snapshot of Lower Manhattan at any given date, were added in June."
