    How is Vornado pronounced? Does it rhyme with tornado, or does it sound different?

    Rhymes with Color-ado, not tornado.

    Wow. Will they keep the Times Sq. HQ also?

    If Lehman takes 1.5 sf and the NBA takes 250-300,000 sf, this tower will be mostly full before it's built.

    Who does Vornado use as a developer? I really hope that a 750 to 800 foot tall box is not built.

    This new building will become there headquaters and they will use 745 to move other staff from 399 park and a few building on ave of the americas into.

    As for who Vornado uses as a developer, they are a developer so I cant answer that one

    NY1 reporters pronounce "Vornado" as if it rhymes with "tornado"

    The block just north of this building with all of the tawdry shops in twenty run down buildings must go. It's such an eyesore, and I can't imagine Lehman's I bankers wanted to dodge that mierda. Does Vornado own any of that site?

    I like that. (Salma Hayek and Naomi Watts racy photo albums would be nice too.)

    I wonder where. The only development sites I can think of are:

    1. The Hardrock which Extell owns;
    2. 157 W57th which Extell owns;
    3. The Ritz fur site which allegedly will be a residential project;
    4. The Shelly's site which some hotel owns;
    5. The empty lowrise buildings that straddle an empty lot at 52,54 and 56 W.57th. To my knowledge, Vornado bought the attractive old building located at 50 W. 57th. I hope that they don't raze it.

    I would like to see the northeast corner of 57th and Lex redeveloped. There's a mediocre building there and some run-down low rise structures. Considering that Vornado owns the Bloomberg Tower, it has an interest in sprucing up that corner.

    Only site close to 57th street they could build on is the NYC and company store on 58th and Lexington that they built. They can build a 30-story office tower on that site on top of the store

    The could raze 50 W 57th. I hope not. It's a nice building. I desperately want to see 52, 54 and 56 W57th razed and developed. Does anyone know if the two buildings (52 and 56) and the lot in the middle are owned by different entities?
