Manhattan Tower is just an advertising slogan for EB5. It isn't the true name of the building.

They just need to knock the brick buildings down because they are no longer fit in that location.

It would be nice if they could incorporate the existing facades into the larger buildings that rise around them in some cases.

Nahhh...! I like my city buildings shining!

It will not take long before those old brick buildings are replaced with something better.

I made a detailed video on the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project as a whole with short updates on the buildings under construction (The 15, 30, 35, and 55)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9IiS9RnchQ

Enjoy it
