It would still be cool if there is a bar or restaurant in whatever building rises here called The 6-5000.

It's a rare site indeed to have a large, empty site like that open to the sky in the middle of Midtown Manhattan. But once it's gone, it'll be gone.

and a ballroom or club called dancing in the dark.

apparantly the story is springsteen and jon landau his manager were standing in front of the hotel arguing about the work in progress born in the usa album. landau pressed that it still needs a hit, so the angered boss stormed off into the hotel, rented a room, came down a few hours later and handed it to him, “here’s your f%#*ing song” and walked away.

Vornado is investing in the area, which btw already is starting to look great, and will see it's properties built.

Vornado spending $65M to spruce up area around Penn Station for commuters


EDDIE SMALL
April 30, 2024


Quote:
Vornado Realty Trust is working on a $65 million streetscape project around Penn Station even as broader plans for transforming the neighborhood remain up in the air.

The project aims to make the area more hospitable to commuters by adding a new pedestrian plaza and rebuilding the sidewalks to be twice as wide as they are now. The plaza will span 16,000 square feet on West 33rd Street outside the station's new East End Gateway and feature five October Glory maple trees, new seating and new restaurants. It should be ready to open in June.

The firm is adding 10 feet to the sidewalks along Seventh Avenue between West 31st and West 34th streets and replacing a half-mile of them with 4 acres of granite paver stones imported from Belgium. Vornado recently completed the first section of the expanded sidewalk, and the entire project should be done by the fall.

"Our vision is to welcome office workers, commuters, visitors and shoppers with wide granite sidewalks, expansive tree-lined plazas, new and accessible entrances to Penn Station, and storefronts activated by outstanding curated restaurants and retailers," Vornado's co-head of real estate, Barry Langer, said in a statement. '

I do wonder though, if a major tenant signing will lead to a redesigned 15 Penn, like we've seen with 350 Park. It's certainly possible.

The plaza outsize of the East End Gateway is looking quite nice and activated. They did a good job...

will be great in the future when the rest of 33rd street (between 7th and 8th) is pedestrianized as well

The entire thing looks better than the renderings. I just wish they would wrap it all up soon.

It is looking pretty great. Is that a concrete plan to continue down to 8th? As it is now doesnt look like there's much more work planned.

In a limited fashion. The plan is for a "shared" street all the way from 6th to 9th.

Vornado’s Bustle Aims to Be a Hangover That Cures Office’s Ills
Two floors of workspace, each sheathed in 22 feet of glass, hovers 44 feet above Seventh Avenue






BY ABIGAIL NEHRING
APRIL 30, 2024


Quote:
If you pause at the threshold of the new Foster + Partners-designed glass canopy before descending into the Seventh Avenue entrance of Pennsylvania Station and take in your surroundings, you will find yourself looking at the underbelly of the Bustle.

This 430-foot recent addition to Vornado Realty Trust (VNO)’s 31-story Penn 2 office building appears to levitate over the plaza, ready to welcome new office tenants. And it’s bedecked with 425,000 LED diodes.

That’s not quite enough diodes for high-res video ads, but the illuminated display will more than suffice for Vornado’s purposes — one-upping the Empire State Building when the Rangers win a home game, for instance, according to Dan Shannon, a partner at MdeAS Architects.

“It can move. It’s dynamic. You can do anything you want,” Shannon said.
Quote:
That anchoring trick is what makes the whole conceit of the Bustle possible, according to Shannon.

“When the knuckleheads chopped down the building, they left the granite foundations,” Shannon said. “We could not support the building on something that required changing the flow of traffic below. We could not stop the trains … And that’s why we have these slanted columns to support this massive load.”

The Bustle contains some of the largest column-free office space in the city and offers a bird’s eye view of the street scene playing out like a silent movie below. Across the avenue is the demolished site of the former Pennsylvania Hotel, which will remain an eyesore for the foreseeable future while Vornado figures out what to do with it.
Quote:
A+I founder Brad Zizmor is all too eager to begin designing the interior of the Bustle, and plans to capitalize on its mix of contrasting ceiling heights, ample natural light, and about 20,000 square feet of landscaped roof terrace.

If all goes according to plan, Penn District commuters pausing to look up from the scrum below will see a nerve center for a business that leases the unconventional space stretching the length of two city blocks.

“Thinking about it from the inside out allows you to get that variety of space, which makes the day rich,” Zizmor said. “It’s almost a metaphor for what we’re looking for as we come back into cities and come back to work side by side. You’ll spend a certain amount of your day at the desk and then come back out to the open environment. It’s really hard to do in a conventional office building.”

Can't wait for them to wrap up on 2 Penn and all of the sidewalk and street work occurring. Its a confusing mess leaving Penn on the 7th Ave side.

^ Yeah, they need to move all the crap out of the way. But the plaza is open and nice. People seem to love it. But tou can already see that it’s not enough. Tgey need to get on with the other improvements that can help accomodate the crowds.

It would be nice if Vornado made the western portal of this site a public park. It could presumably use the air rights for a tower that rose on the eastern portion or transfer them to the old A&S site on Sixth. A park would dramatically enhance the appeal of this area.

Another modified design (likely not the last), and a height cut. Also, we've moved away from the side core.
