There is no design. It now appears that the towers will not be built on the MSG site itself but in the immediate vicinity. In NY, unlike any other city in the world to my knowledge, each site has a specific height to which any building can be built. However, developers, under certain constraints, can buy air rights from adjoining buildings to increase the height of new towers. In this case, the developers will be afforded greater latitude in transferring air about 5 m square feet of rights (i.e., 2 Empire State Bldgs) to nearby sites that they own.

Any tall buildings from this megaproject will add to Hudson Yards well. I wonder when we'll see something, even if it's one or two 1,000' supertalls. As long as we can get another one here, the area will be untouchable.

That $4billion tower at the Hotel Penn site and the 2.5MSF tower at the Drake site - I wonder how tall they will be, but that's different. They may be the next two towers to get their threads in the supertall section.

I hope NYC gets the two supertalls that would replace the Twin Towers on the MSG site, and if Merill Lynch moves onto the Penn Hotel site it will be a 3-million sq. footer (insane height). The Drake site is suppose to have retail at the base with Nordstroms as the anchor.

That's great. I love our office skscrapers the most. It seems like most major financial giants want a new skyscraper on Manhattan. I hope that company that wanted trading floors makes their own tower here in this area of Midtown instead of going to 3WTC.

It seems Spitzer is a bat for Silverstein and wants Merrill Lynch to stay downtown, I don't know how they could squeeze 3-million sq. ft. in 3-WTC without making the entire site design a disaster.

They might add a few more floors to it, and that would be okay because they would still start Tower and I'd be willing to wait, but I don't think so.

Guys, what was this elevation from?

The MSG thing?

Because the two smaller towers are 1,400' tall and the larger one is in the 1,900' range since 1 Penn Plaza is 750 feet tall.
If they really are planning on going that tall with so many buildings, I'd faint right now from joy. The smallest one is about 950'.
It says, "over 5MSF," but I bet you could fit that much space in a 1,900 foot tall tower alone.

I am really tired of all this speculative stuff. I want concrete information!

Who knows what out future holds; we can only wait.

I'm still pleased with one nice supertall, and I'm sure that we'll get at least one here.

All I can say is that, no matter what, the view of the Empire State Building and 1 Penn Plaza from the west will be blocked because behind the
supertall(s) of this project will be the supertalls of the West Side, getting smaller the closer they get to the Hudson River.

Well it's good to know that at least whoever made it isn't going to oppose extremely tall skyscrapers in NY.

Yes, the response was over the top. However, the poster originally referred to had made over 100 posts in a week, systematically working through and bumping old threads and adding to current ones with inanities such as "cool", "wow", "nice colour", "nice design", "nice building", "very tall" etc etc.

These postings are not "expressing his opinion"; they are pure post-slutting designed to boost the post count and nothing more. It happens all too often in these forums.

Yeah, there's a lot of characters on SSC. A lot of people with personal problems come on here to let out their anger in the form of ignorant, nationalistic posts...thank you mods for your continued service.

If we got ourselves a pair of 1400-foot-high residential towers, it may end up being similar to the deceased WTC Towers. And why does the complex have to be completely residential? It should have been a mixed use project.

Why should they be mixed use, the point of these building is to creat living space in Midtown. And theres enough office buidling in manhattan and not enough residential towers. So I say keep it as is and get the building them

Well then this project sucks. What if the old World Trade Center were residential instead of office?

Just answer the question. What would you do if they were residential?
What would you say?
