NEW YORK | PANYNJ Tower | 261m | 855ft | 42 fl | Canceled


Rogers, Pelli and Kohn compete for Port Authority Tower design
At its board meeting today, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey unveiled three possible designs for a tower to be built over its bus terminal in Midtown Manhattan. The designs were solicited from the UK based Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and from the US firms Pelli Clarke Pelli and Kohn Pederson Fox.

The project will add approximately 1.3 million sq ft of sustainable first-class office space above the terminal and allow for significant improvements to the terminal facility, including new mass transit opportunities for commuters through increased bus capacity and the renovation of approximately 60,000 sq ft within the existing North Wing for retail use. It is expected to generate approximately $500 million for the Port Authority over the term of the lease.

The Port gave no indication as to when an architect for the project will be selected. Vornado Realty will develop the project.

Vornado Eyes Starchitect Richard Rogers For Bus Terminal Tower.

July 24, 2008

Richard Rogers.Vornado Realty Trust CEO Steve Roth is considering a design by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Rogers for his planned office tower atop the Port Authority Bus terminal, a Port Authority official confirmed.

The design by Mr. Rogers, along with two other designs (New York-based SHoP was said to be working on a design for the tower at one point), is expected to be presented at today's Port Authority board meeting.

Mr. Rogers, whose works include the planned Tower 3 at the World Trade Center and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, recently withdrew from a nearby project: the now scuttled Javits Center expansion.

Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners, Kohn Pedersen Fox Architects and Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects submitted designs of 42-story, 48-story and 47-story towers, respectively, a spokesman for the Port Authority confirmed for GlobeSt.com. "We are hopeful that a final decision will be made in the next six months," he adds, noting that the developer will make the actual decision with final approval from the Port Authority.

good



This building is 40floors but the hight of this building is unknown, unless somebody nows on this forum.

Because this building stands on the other site of the street of proposed Port Authority Tower plot (actually metro gate en car park above). You can see a little piece of the car parc in the pic (bottom right). The 3 proposels are 47-48 stories, a little bit higher then 11 Times Square.

more news...



The Port Authority bus terminal, long considered one of Midtown's most prominent eyesores, is one step closer to becoming a base for a soaring new skyscraper after the board of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey released three possible design plans for the building yesterday.

A London-based firm, Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners, submitted the most daring of the proposals, which were formally presented to the agency's board yesterday. Its design features three stacked boxes held together with diagonal trusses rising 42 stories, and includes more than 40,000 square feet of retail space. The other two plans, by Kohn Pedersen Fox Architects and Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, envision 48 and 47 stories, respectively.

Port Authority officials said the final design would be chosen in the next two months and that construction would begin in late 2009 or early 2010.

A joint venture of Vornado Realty Trust and the Lawrence Ruben Company will build a 40-story, 1.3 million-square-foot office tower above the north wing of the existing bus terminal. The developers also are proposing making significant renovations to the terminal, including 18 new departure gates and an overhaul of about 60,000 square feet of its retail space.

The chairman of the Port Authority's board of commissioners, Anthony Coscia, said the project would improve commutes for bus riders, as the agency would reap about $500 million over the term of the lease.

The board also approved an agreement between the Port Authority and the New York Police Department to create a specialized World Trade Center police unit that will work in conjunction with Port Authority police to provide security for the site.

"Today's agreement provides a clear delineation of responsibility so that the city and the Port Authority can work together to ensure seamless security that will keep the World Trade Center site safe," Mayor Bloomberg said in a statement.

I wonder what they will do with all of the parking because the revenue that the parking brings is significant to the economic health of the site and New York City.

these three towers range from 950-800
11 times square is 600
NY Times building is about 750 to the roof

- Cesar Pelli, who designed the World Financial Center. Pelli wants to build a 47-story, 945-foot, blue-glass tower with circular patterns, a garden in the sky and 55,000 square feet of retail space.

- Richard Rogers, who designed one of Larry Silverstein's office towers at Ground Zero. His plans call for a 42-story, 855-foot structure with a sky lobby and eight gilded boxes braced with ladder-like vertical shafts.

- Eugene Kohn, who designed the tallest building in Shanghai. He's aiming for a 48-floor, 790-foot, mirrored-glass tower that's angled above an oblong pedestal.

Hey, if someone creates a poll, I'd be interested in participating to see which design wins.

I'm happy with either Pelli or Rodgers. Both offer something a little different for the area, Kohn on the other hand... not so much.

Agreed !!

I like Rodgers design much more - but as we already know, the taller tower will be the more popular choice.
