    that building will look beautiful from street level, but only if it were more visable to people across the rivers.

    I have been looking at that parking lot since the 70's. *I am so happy this will finally be a real building. *This building and NYT I think will push construction west and open up 8th ave to additional projects. *I forsee the west side of 8th ave (38-40th) getting new towers by the end of this decade.

    There is already an office building proposed on the west side of Eighth Avenue just south of Port Authority which is building its own tower too.

    11 Times Square will rise on this parking lot, across 41st Street from the site of New York Times Tower. 25 January 2002.





    The corner of 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue, the future home of 11 Times Square. 22 February 2002.





    A dreary parking lot is expected to give way to 11 Times Square, a glamorous, new, $400 million tower with offices, stores and a dazzling stack of electronic signs. The tower will stand across 42nd Street from Westin Times Square Hotel. 8 June 2002.

    Howard and Edward Milstein are building the 850,000-square-foot building, 11 Times Square, which will combine office space, street-level stores and possibly apartments on a parking lot at the southeast corner of 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue. New York Times Tower will replace the white 3-story building on 41st Street. 17 February 2003.

    This neighborhood is going to be the great gateway to Manhattan for tourists, now that Grand Central no longer takes Amtrak and the new Penn Station geared more towards business travellers. *Just ten years ago, who would have thought? *The bus terminal is still kind of seedy, but it seems a lot better than what it was. *If New York can succeed in making its Bus Depot the centerpiece of a business district, it will have accomplished something trully unique amung American cities (that I know of).

    Does anybody know what's going on with the SOM tower to be built on top?

    From the building's website at ElevenTimesSquare.com:

    LOCATION TO APPLAUD

    11 Times Square is ideally situated and easily accessible from the five boroughs of New York City, as well as the entire tri-state region. The Port Authority Bus Terminal is conveniently located across the street, and commuters can gain access to 11 subway lines through an entrance within the building. Both Penn Station and Grand Central Station are within walking distance

    BUILDING AMENITIES

    Rooftop Atrium
    Excellent views
    Ground floor retail
    Messenger Center
    24-hour Concierge
    Subway entrance incorporated into the building
    Significant signage and identity opportunities


    A STAR IS BORN

    11 Times Square is the newest addition to the impressive cluster of corporate headquarters in the Times Square District. Located at the gateway to the new "New 42nd Street," the 1,000,000 square foot monolith will rise as a majestic symbol of 21st century modernity and style. This newly constructed, class A office tower, occupying the southeast corner of 42nd Street and 8th Avenue, will capture the imagination and spirit of the renaissance that transformed Manhattan's Midtown West into one of New York's most dynamic business districts.

    Designed by Fox & Fowel Architects, PC, New York's Premier office building architect, 11 Times Square will serve as an exciting monument to the future. The 35 story, sculptural office tower will be elegantly sheathed in a state of the art aluminum and glass curtain wall. Perched high above the city, a rooftop atrium and telecommunications tower will crown the shimmering building.

    At street level, passersby will be drawn 11 Times Square's expansive entrances, which will feature scaled, all glass walls and brilliant canopies. Once inside, visitors will enjoy 60,000 square feet of the finest ground floor retailers. The lobby, exclusively situated on the second floor, will provide a 24 concierge, a security desk, and a card reader security system. A stone, ornamental metal and wood motif, befitting the finest office towers in the world, will enrich the lobby's sophisticated design.

    11 Times Square's outstanding construction and layout will provide tenants the opportunity to modify the space to meet their specific needs. Floors will range from 29,914 to 41,035 square feet and allow for 9' ceilings. High performance glass windows at the perimeter of the building will offer exceptional light and stunning views of the Hudson River and the Times Square area.
    State-of-the-art mechanical systems will be integrated in the building to meet tenants' high level and diverse technological requirements.



    OPPORTINUTIES FOR A LEADING ROLE

    A corporate tower's name gives it a unique identity and position among Manhattan's most illustrious skyscrapers. At 11 Times Square, the anchor tenant will be afforded significant naming potential.

    It just struck me that the profile of this buildings looks like the top of Reuters.

    Times Square should be renamed Spireville.

    I just walked by the site and am happy to tell you all that they broke ground today. *Looked like they were busy digging out the foundation.
