See the Future Shadows Overcasting Central Park In These 3D Renderings of Planned Skyscrapers

Using special Cesium software, Greg Angevine of Cube Cities recently created a visualization of the shadows that will be cast on Central Park by future skyscrapers.

Using the shadow functionality now available with Cesium, we’ve created a visualization of this shadowing phenomenon from eight of the largest buildings recently constructed and planned for midtown. The video shows the shadows casted by the buildings as the sun rises and sets on September 21st, the same date chosen by the MAS as indicative of a typical fall day in Manhattan.
