Yes i think that NY needs another kick! We should demolish some of the old building and replace them, with 1000ft+ buildings. Its time to move on from the 1930's!

If there's anywhere in the US that a pair of 1400ft towers should go, it's right on top of Penn Station. That place is a real nexus of activity. So many people go through there every day it's just ridiculous.

Hope they go ahead with the rebuild of the post office into a replacement station as well. I found the current Penn to be confusing and crowded.

I agree, Penn Station can use some work. I really hope the designs are nice, nothing too awkward since they're so tall. Graceful I hope.

good news for nyc you have all the classics in place, and now you're challenging the other growing cities in building new landmarks as well. looks like nyc will remain the ultimate city for skyscrapers after all. sweet justice. i'm happy for you.

This is all great! As a non-American, I have this pretty typical view of New York, and it's mostly Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Statue of Liberty etc. It's fantastic that New York is set to finally get these new great landmarks (along with the new WTC), keeping it as a modern skyscraper city!

I think we'll see renderings within the next few weeks. I'm 100% sure that NY will have at least a dozen 1000'+ footers in less than a decade. I'll guarantee you that the world will be shocked. The WestSide skyscrapers will make up America's 4th largest CBD, only behind Chicago Loop, Lower Manhattan and Midtown Manhattan. That's like building the LA skyline on Manhattan Island. The cluster will be massive. That's not including all of the other projects.

BUILD IT!! This project would be sick, guaranteeing the development of the entire far west side and giving the New York skyline a much needed exclamation point (which its been missing since 9/11).

My friend was hinting that they would be taller than Sears Tower.
And no one said they would be twins, unless I missed something.

Fantastic news!

At least they are building twin towers after twin towers were lost.

I'm not so hot on the idea of massive twin towers in New York City. They're already building new World Trade Center towers, and I think that that'd be the only appropriate place for twin towers.
