$14 billion would beat City Center in Las Vegas and make it the biggest investment in the US for a single project.

I know New York is a big City and will continue to grow and evolve but I hope any buildings close to the Empire State Building don't shrink it???? You know...The illusion of a buildings size is affected by a larger building nearby??? If this new project is on the Madison Sq. Gdn. site it is still a few blocks away yet about parrallel across Manhattan from memory..so ESB will look smaller from the Hudson????

NY is the most unique real estate market in the US. The city can fill 6 m sf of space with ease.

Even forgetting the commercial market, consider the NY residential market. While the rest of the country is suffering, NY's market is red hot. Trump can't sell out his Chicago tower at $800/ s.f., and yet comparable space in the TWT, 15 CPW and the Plaza is selling out rapidly in NY at $6,000/ s.f.

Just to get an idea.

No, it's not real.
My friend was hinting that they would be taller than Sears Tower.
And no one said they would be twins, unless I missed something.

I really appreciate this idea. I can't wait to see renders of the planned buildings, I hope they'll give back some of the glance of the old WTC.

Completion of the 1,400 foot towers is ten years away. The article states that construction of the first phase (presumably, the 2.5m s.f. tower on 7th Ave.) would start in 2008.

wowow this sounds great...New York needs some skyscrapers that 'stand out' as it only the ESB that is really notisable...all the rest seem to be at a similar height...200m-300m
