I doubt it will be twins. They already announced that the 2 towers will be different in height. Unfortunately first 1400 ft, second 1100 ft. Maybe they will change that, but for now this is it.

That's correct. One article suggested they'd be twins, but that appears to be wrong. It does seem, however, that there will be four towers over 1,000 feet, and one of them will be 1,400 feet tall.

Yes... that's what makes a landmark!!!

As I was trying to say in a previous post... "Madison Square Garden" is a brand, not a landmark.

Im glad that the Farley building won't be razed, but what about the Hotel Pennsylvania? I think its a great historic building. What a shame.

Madison Square Garden is ugly. ugh. I can't believe that piece of shit replaced the beautiful Pennsylvania station.
BRING THAT MUTHA DOWN!!!!

It will be taller than the FT. The FT's roof is about 1,350 feet tall.

I believe that one of the two towers by Foster/SOM on the proposed MSG site will be the 1,400 ft. scraper. The 2-million scraper by KPF will be somewhere in the region of Rogers WTC tower... probably around 350 meters in height.
