NEW YORK | Harlem Park Tower | 600ft | 40 fl | Canceled

Here's one of the designs for the competition of the Harlem Park Tower located in the corner of 125th street and Park Ave, right next to the train station. It contain spaces for offices, residences, retail, and mainly a Marriott hotel. The concept was to basically make various different vertical pieces that make up the different spaces in the program and connect each other with a central vertical tower. By doing this, the people of Harlem can distinguish the different uses of the tower just by looking at the building, specially since the low-density site allows the tower to be seen from almost anywhere in the area.
Here is a rendering of the tower facing 125th street...I will try to find some more renderings and floor plans to post in here.

If that's true to rendering, looks about 40 stories. Pretty good for up-up-town.

Yes you're right, it is about 40 stories tall making a height of 600ft. This could maybe set the pace for skyscrapers in the future for uptown Manhattan.

Wasn´t the Marriott Hotel at that location cancelled? Is this a new proposal?

Do you think it's too tall for the area?

Maybe something half that height?

Marriot was cancelled / Replaced by Office Tower

This article was in the New York Post today:

January 10, 2007 -- THERE are stirrings and rumblings that Harlem's long-dormant 1800 Park Ave. site is springing to life.

Sources say Vornado Realty Trust - led by the dynamic Steve Roth and Michael Fascitelli - is in the middle of several tenancy agreements.

One would have Time Warner Cable relocate its headquarters from Stamford and take the office space in the base of the building.

The retail team, led in-house by Sendeep Mathrani, is also directly working with Nike Town and Bed Bath & Beyond to become the retail anchors of the proposed building.

No one from Vornado returned our calls.

As we advised last year, Vornado Realty Trust completed its agreements with previous developer Michael Caridi and his group, as well as agreements with the College of Podiatric Medicine, which owns the site and has leased it to the developers to 2051.

The 36,289-foot development site is on the west side of the Park Avenue block front from 124th to 125th Streets.

It can produce a 500,000-foot office building, and includes 126,281 feet of air rights from an adjacent property also owned by the college.

This will become the largest development in Harlem and could change the area's dynamics.

Be aware, however, that no new building plans have yet been filed with the Department of Buildings.

UMM, dont really like it to many interconnecting towers, it should just be on slab, and the rendering looks kinda cheap-like if it was done an hour or 2 before being presented using sketchup

It's funky and I like it. I don't think it's too tall, 500ft would look better, but I still think this looks fine given where it is.

Nice project, this design looks very Dutch. It could also fit well in Rotterdam for example.
