Yep. Could end up looking fantastic or like a fat Star Wars imperial destroyer that ran out of gas...

RSHP win Manhattan terminal !!!



Rogers' firm beats rivals to win Port Authority commission
The Port Authority of NY & NJ announced today that it has selected London–based Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to design a new 42-storey tower and renovations to the Port Authority Bus Terminal located in Mid-town Manhattan.

The proposed air rights development 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 40,000 sq ft within the existing North Wing for retail use.

Rogers bested US finalists Pelli Clarke Pelli and KPF to land the job. Work is estimated to start in the spring of 2009.

I'm sure it will look good next to NY time tower. Which by the way I believe, this building is taller then at the roof top. I already love the design can't wait to see it finished.

the new design looks pretty good, an industrial look (like most of rogers projects) that is perfect for New York City.

I like it. It almost looks like the 3 blocks are hanging in that steel structure.

I don't like it at all, But how can be 261m (855ft) when he would have only 42 stories.????
In my town approved tower will have 41 stories and would be 160m (525ft).

It's being built on top of something and office buildings almost always have taller floors than mixed use/condo/res, ect buildings.

Don't like it at all, I hate how they drew inspiration from the crappy bus terminal. The building doesn't look modern at all either, kinda reminds me of the HSBC building in Hong Kong.

hopefully this tower will be moving forward...
here some old news, but still interesting:

Paul Weiss passes up terminal lease for renewal

By LOIS WEISS
November 25, 2009


West Side law firm Paul Weiss Rifkind Garrison & Wharton, which holds down a chunk of 1285 Avenue of the Americas, has decided to expand there to 550,000 feet rather than anchor a new Port Authority Bus Terminal tower.

The 15-year renewal lease was the talk of several real estate gatherings last week. On Thursday night, for instance, real estate partner Meredith Kane was lauded at the WX dinner by her Harvard Law School chums, Jennifer Raab, head of Hunter College, and State Senator Eric Schneiderman.

The mega law firm is the largest tenant in the 1.47-million-foot tower -- still known as the Paine Webber Building -- and has a lease that ends in 2010. Last year, renovations won 1285 a LEED silver designation.

"Certainly the level of confidence we and our landlord had to be able to do this deal clearly established values," said Kane, referring us to partner Steve Simkin for further comment. Simkin didn't return a call.

Moshe Sukenik and Barry Gosin of Newmark Knight Frank are representing the attorneys and declined comment. A year ago, the law firm was negotiating to become the anchor tenant for a new Port Authority Bus Terminal tower proposed by Vornado Realty Trust. This new deal gives the law firm two more floors.

While the lease at 1285 is not yet signed, the decision to renew is a good one for the city and the economy, noted Bill Rudin, speaking at the Real Estate Board of New York's luncheon last Tuesday.
