the bottom pics are clearly older renderings, but going by this, the mixed use tower is taller than the coach tower was before it's height reduction

I like the Extell plan too.

It has triplet towers connected at the top at 1,240 feet tall. Then there's a 800 footer, and a few shorter towers too. Also, you have six 730 foot tall Sunslice towers with wind turbines in their crowns. The observation deck on top of the triplet towers may be the biggest ever. I hope that this or the Brookfield plan wins.


Vornado/Durst - glassy, slightly tapering skyscraper of 80 floors and 1,205 feet, plus at least another supertall and many other towers

KPF (Related) - a 74-floor and 1,080-foot diagrid skyscraper, plus over another dozen skyscrapers from 33 to over 60 floors

Extell - the triplet towers, with 90 floors joined at the top at 1,238 feet tall; this plan also includes a 800-footer, six 730-footers, and a few other towers too

Brookfield Properties (SOM) - contains a slightly curved 1,300-foot tall tower and some smaller supertalls, plus many other skyscrapers

Tishman (Helmut Jahn and Peter Walker) - 2x 3MSF towers at about 1,000 feet tall, and a second pair of towers that's a little smaller than the first, plus even more smaller towers closer to the water (mostly office.)


No matter what happens, NY wins. Even the worst plan in anyone's opinion will be an amazing addition.

One of the characteristics that I love most about NY is how little "centers" there are, how individual the skyline is, and this is the total opposite. It feels like a residential park kinda thing, more suitable for Shanghai or some far east city. I think it would look a lot better if all these towers were scattered through mid-town and LM. To me, all these towers are wonderful, I just don't concur with of them being clustered, it creates that Dubai effect where everything looks prefabricated and mechanical. Just my opinion.

Simply amazing - but i doubt any of these proposals will surface in the next decade. They have to go with Brookfields here - it is just splendid.
Cant wait to come back home - its not fair all these things happening in NY and im down under! lol.

This is incredible :eek:
Is this the same project proposed for Penn Station or are we talking about different projects?
Simply amazing :drool:
This is a different project.

The project you are talking about goes behind this project at MSG and will have 2 to 3 supertalls.

Keep in mind that this project is only a part of the West Side megadevelopment.

There are still many NY supertalls that we have yet to see. The party ain't over yet.

You all must understand that these proposals are intended to show the public/City the layout of the plan and massing of the towers. The actual design will be revised once a descision is met. The Brookfield/SOM and Vornando/FX&Fowle plans are the most anticipated proposals + aesthetically pleasing on the eye.

This MEGAPROJECT and the MSG site will be easily larger than the majority of cities on earth now including mores square footage than Paris La defense and London Canary Warf combined. This is sure and absolute Madness!!! :nuts:

When pretend begin these projects? Are they under construction? Great for NYC!!!
It is being discussed now as well as the other project adjacent to this one - Penn station redevelopment. It is on the other side of the same block.
