There are rumours that the Tunnel Garage in the TriBeCa area near the Holland Tunnel could be slated for demolition as another run of the mill highrise would replace it. Residents of TriBeCa, Greenwich Village, and West Village have been rallying against its demolition. According to Forgotten NY, it was said to be the city's very first parking garage, and it was built in anticipation of the Holland Tunnel when it was first oppened.

From the recent scaffolding, my guess is that 2 Columbus Circle will be recladded despite the many that opposed it.

Nothing stands above all else forever, nothing ever lasts.

Sure New York will always be a great city, but as with every other city that has been number 1 before, it can't be forever...

Nice towers though

No doubt it will be for a good few years yet, but have you seen China? The economy is growing so fast they don't know what to do with it! The cities are growing at an alarming rate, one city I think completes something like 20,000 sqmeters of office space per day!

It is getting so powerfull that soon no one will be able to keep up with it, and power= money, and money= big cities and big buildings.

I doubt any chinese city will ever have the heart of cities like NYC, or London, or Paris though, and on alot of levels I guess that is what counts!

Anyway back on topic! As I said great buildings, but it's a shame they werent past 1,000 to roof height, well I guess we will just have to wait for the Freedom tower! Whats the deal with that anyway?

Today, a deal was struck, and construction on Freedom Tower should start within days. WTC Tower Two might have a roof around 1,000 feet.

I think Bank of America Tower is one of the coolest, yet most unknown towers.

Staten Island needs stuff too. Maybe in a decade or so, they will get tall buildings by the waterfront.

Exactly

But it looks like they finally made a deal and the government is going to build the freedom tower and another one on Ground zero, Silversteen still is going to build the other 3.

It said they start construction as early as next week.
