    Move over Trump, there’s a new tallest building in town--well almost.

    Construction is set to begin on what is expected to be New York City’s tallest residential skyscraper. It is called Carnegie 57.

    As its name suggests, the building will be located on 57th Street near Carnegie Hall.

    The current tallest residential building is the Trump World Tower, standing at 861 feet.

    Carnegie 57 is slated to top that at 1,005 feet tall.

    Plans for the building include a Park Hyatt Hotel and more than 130 luxury apartments.

    Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2013.
