This building won't see the light of day. America is in a recession.

As if the Great Depression stopped them from building The Empire State Building.

Some people just don't understand the cyclical nature of economics.

My vote goes for the third design.

Sure... guess you haven't really seen much of the construction in some of America's biggest cities.

If these get approved, I just hope the Rogers design is aggressively passed over

1-Most interesting design, I would choose this personally
2-I like it, but it will prove to be too expensive for the private developer
3-I like this one the least, but the developer will probably choose it because it is a big, dumb, easy to build box.

I've gotta go with the Pelli proposal, and not just becouse it's the tallest, but becouse it has that Chase Manhatten presence, in an updated skin.

^You no like Rogers?



More Rogers, please.

Just because I like him the most. I really hope he can score a tower even bigger than 3WTC in NY.

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

Architects Journal
Richard Vaughan

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners has won a competition to design a 42-storey skyscraper in Manhattan, New York.

The London-based practice saw off strong competitors in the shape of Pelli Clarke Pelli and KPF to bag the commission by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Rogers' new tower will be located above the northern wing of the Port Authority Bus Terminal in central Manhattan. The winner will be officially announced next week.

The practice's design was the smallest of the three, with Pelli and KPF submitting 47 and 48-storey towers respectively.
It is understood that the Port Authority is optimistic about the project, despite the financial chaos that is hitting New York at present and is hoping to start on site as early as spring 2009.

It will be the second skyscraper Rogers will design in Manhattan, after taking on Tower 3 at the World Trade Centre site, where he will work alongside Foster + Partners and Maki and Associates.

NY Daily News:
- 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.

I've seen this before! I'm so glad this design won! It's sooo cool. It reminds me of the old starwars movies.
