NEW YORK | Penn Plaza East Tower | 300m+ | 1000ft+ | fl | Pro

Vornado has plans to revamp the neighborhood surrounding Penn Station. They've disclosed their intention to redevelop multiple properties. This rendering was snuck into a pdf pitching their redevelopment of the Pennsylvania Hotel (right tower, 427m)

Hopefully both of these architectural atrocities will never happen. They look outright obscene and ugly.

99% certain those are placeholders and there's just no way in hell either of those two "designs" were done by a trained architect. Unless of course besides the opioid crisis there's also an LSD crisis that I do not yet know about.

There's even latin filler text under "A New Supertall is Stacking Up in the Penn District". I know it's a small detail, but if it slips through to the stage of presentation to investors (like it has now), then that just reflects on the overall attention to detail within the entire project. Also just a pet-peeve of mine ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What's with the ugly supertall designs lately? Did someone promote Gene Kaufman?

It's odd to think that if this is all built, from Hudson Yards to ESB, Midtown would begin with a wall of supertalls. They better approve a bunch of 150-250m buildings from 20th to 30th Street to make it less jarring.
