    Good point, still no word if this is a current project or something they designed awhile back, Nothing on Vornado's website either

    Hes right sometimes renderings use artistic license in order to familiarize people with the neighborhood or improve the surroundings for the buildings architecture.

    I don't know if it is related, but the foundation for a large structure is being excavated between 31st ST and 32nd ST just east of 7th Ave.

    Yeah right. This is the Pennsylvania Hotel site. Observe the the notched corner of the H&M in the model:



    That's the other massive old hotel in the rendering. What was it called, the Statler?

    hmm..Doesn't the building next to the Hotel Penn rise taller, in a series of setbacks and I don't remember it having a series of flags like that. But in the model the tower is def.on the Hotel Penn site, you can even see the Manhattan Mall behind it.

    Also,a 2.3 msf tower could rise where Hotel Penn sits,seems kinda foolish to demolish the hotel and build a res tower half that size.

    Its fishy, this building is severely under zoned, a million square feet, for its site.

    Its funny how for the longest time Vornado was against getting into the residential market now they have 731, soon to be this and they bought another property on 65 th and Madison today, its about time they got in. Mark my words they will be a Fortune 500 firm one day

    Did they buy a nice property at 65th and Mad. or a lousy one that will be redeveloped?

    this is all i saw from crainsny.com

    Vornado to buy Madison Ave. building for $158 million
    Vornado Realty Trust agreed to buy a residential and retail building, located at 759 Madison Ave., for about $158 million.

    The 94,100-square-foot building, which is situated between 65th and 66th streets, contains 37 rental apartments and 9,100 square feet of retail space. The retail space, which rents for about $550 a square foot, is fully occupied by Basso, Gaultier and Krizia stores.

    Vornado, a real estate investment trust based in Manhattan, has seen profits jump thanks to the strong market. The REIT, which has some 14.3 million square feet of office space in the New York City area, acquired almost $329 million worth of real estate in 2004. In March, Vornado acquired the retail space of the former Westbury Hotel, which houses luxury retailers including Cartier, Chlo and Gucci, for $113 million.

    I'm confused about this project;
    Were there two proposals for the same site? Which one's getting built?
