    Wow...

    That's a nice looking building. Where is it supposed to be? I hope not on the Penn Hotel site, as I think that this is a nice old building that should not be demolished.

    I believe you can see Hotel Pennsylvania in one of those renderings, so I don't think it's on the same site, but across the street (35th).

    I hope its built. 33rd street could use some more buildings on the west side to distract from the fugly supertall 1 Penn Plaza.

    Yea, this seems to be 435 7th, where Vornado has already built the retail base.The rendering seems inaccurate in that the site is directly parallel to the ESB but it's rendered as if it's a block south where the Hotel Penn actually sits.

    Vornado has a lot of the property in that area.

    So where is this building exactly? Are we talking about 6th avenue and 34th or 33rd and 5th?

    its above the H&M on the Southeastern side of 34th Street across from Macy's, the Pennsylvania is one bloack south of this, Vornado owns that as well and may demolish that to build a tower one day as well.

    Orginally Vornado was going to build a smal office building at this site, i assume those plans are scrapped because of a continued weak commercial sector growth

    I wonder if this building is likely to rise soon. If it's residential, I don't see why it wouldn't.

    I'd love to see more projects on the remaining blighted blocks on 6th and on B'Way in the 20's and 30's.

    There is no date on this in terms of a construction schedule so who knows if this is a new or old idea

    Nice find!

    I sure hope that it gets built... That area is going to be so and so much better in that not so far future.

    i like both designs, however id think an office tower would work better in that area, there are not many stores, grocery stores or other amenities, but hey there building in Lower Manhattan without this stuff so what would stop them

    The more important reason for it being an office tower is being across the street from Penn, it has some of the best transportation in the city.
