they are not the same, difference year and difference style. Rockefeller has a long and rich story behide it, it almost like one of the back bone of NYC skyline. Pacific Place just another tall buildings...where is the story?

Rockefeller Center was designed with people in mind, that is why it has the English Gardens, the fountain and the year round skating rink. I don't believe Pacific Place was designed with that in mind. So they are not the same in design or use. Pacific Place has hotels and Rockefeller Center has no hotels. And, with the ABC buildings across the street, Rockefeller Center is pretty much all office space, and a lot of it.
But I voted for Rockefeller Center because I think it is one of the great urban spaces in the World.

Pacific Place is a commercial complex developed by Swire Properties. It was completed in the early 90s and it features four buildings. Three hotels, The Mariott, Conrad and Island Shangri La are located in Pacific Place. The area also includes serviced apartments, an office building and an exclusive mall on the bottom.

Recently a third one is added but it's located in Wanchai.

Rockefeller Center. Is there not a better picture of Pacific Place though? It just looks like a cluster of highrises.

^ A third one of what? Are there two Pacific Places outside of Wan Chai?

I like the Pacific Place towers but it simply cannot compete with the history and greatness of Rockerfeller Centre.

I'm not familiar with Pacific Place either but am quite familiar with Rockefeller Center. I assume that we're comparing the public spaces between the buildings as much if not more than the buildings themselves, right?

As such, can anyone post images of the public space at the base of the buildings for Pacific Place?

Thanks - Kent

The picture of Rockefeller Center is at least 30 years old. The ABC towers aren't even in the photo. Doesn't anyone have any recent shots, especially of the of the gardens and the fountain? They are what make the Roc so very special.
