I expect the 1 Madison Avenue addition and 56 Leonard to be drastically redesigned or else they may be cancelled.

Hotel Pennsylvania is One Giant Step Closer to Demolition

If approved by the City Council, the new 15 Penn Plaza office tower will become one of the tallest buildings in the city.

July 14, 2010 8:04pm
By Jill Colvin

MANHATTAN — It looks like lights out for Hotel Pennsylvania.

The City Planning Commission voted unanimously Wednesday in favor of razing the storied hotel to make way for a new Vornado Realty office tower, despite fierce opposition by Community Board 5.

If the decision is approved by the City Council, the new 1,200-foot 15 Penn Plaza tower will become one of the tallest buildings in the city and add nearly two million square feet of commercial floor space to midtown, according to an environmental impact statement filed with the commission.

The project also includes the re-opening of an underground passageway under the south side of 33rd Street, which will connect the Sixth and Seventh Avenue subway lines as well as the PATH trains so commuters no longer have to transfer outside.

Planning Commission Chair Amanda Burden said the property, directly across from Penn Station and Madison Square Garden, is an "ideal location for high density development."

"At nearly 80,000 square feet, the site offers an opportunity for precisely the type of well-designed…office building that New York City needs to stay globally competitive," she said before casting a 'yea' vote.

Vornado Realty Trust, which acquired full rights to the hotel in 1999, would not comment on the decision.

Maybe but considering all of the hurdles of the approval process, it's doubtful that any developer would willingly give up hard-fought square footage and air rights. 56 Leonard will be built, accoding to the developer. I'm not sure that One Madison has gone through all of the approval obstacles...

The city has rejected landmark status of a building near Ground zero. That building is being torn down for a mosque. A mosque should not be built on that site, why couldn't a skyscraper be built on that location instead?

Ehm I thought that mosque is just a few floors IN a skyscraper.... But I'm not sure. So there shouldn't be a problem.

Haha. That'd be funny if they actually built one of these on the site http://openbuildings.com/buildings/s...file-1443.html

Holy ******* shit that is awful. I'd rather the entirety of western Manhattan be covered in MSGs than have that thing within a hundred miles of the city.

It looks like a cross between the Bunker Hill apartments in LA and 56 leonard St. Not that bad and Sydney needs all the housing development they can get.

Approval is official



A new 67-storey skyscraper has won the approval of the New York authorities despite efforts to stop the construction by the owner of the Empire State Building.

The full city council backed the 15 Penn Plaza by a 47-1 vote.

The office building will stand nearly as tall as the 102-storey Empire State Building (ESB), two blocks away.

ESB owner Anthony Malkin had argued the new building would ruin the "uniqueness" of the city's skyline.

But New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Manhattan should embrace new investments, adding: "Anybody that builds a building in New York City changes its skyline.

"We don't have to run around to every other owner and apologize," Mr Bloomberg told a news conference.

"One guy owns a building, and he'd like to have it be the only tall building. I'm sorry that's not the real world," he added.

A spokesman for the building's developer said the building would be an "an outstanding addition to New York's skyline".

In a statement, Mr Malkin said: "This is not about banning tall buildings, but about preserving the very uniqueness of the New York City skyline."

The Empire State Building, which stands 1,250ft (381m), was the tallest building in New York City until the construction of the World Trade Center in Manhattan's Financial District in 1970.

The building, built in 1931, once again held the title following the 9/11 attacks.

The new skyscraper will stand 1,190ft-tall (363m). Its development is still in the planning stages.
