Vornado Realty Corp. and Kushner Companies are proposing to redevelop the 41-story, 1.5-million square-foot commercial building at 666 Fifth Avenue, in Midtown between East 52nd and 53rd Streets, into a 1,400-foot-tall mixed-use tower. According to the New York Post, the building would include a significant retail podium, which will be topped by a slender tower featuring a hotel and residences. Zaha Hadid has been tasked to design, and Kushner owns a majority of the property, although Vornado currently owns the building’s retail condominium along Fifth Avenue, and Zara owns a separate retail portion.

  1. A Zaha Hadid skyscraper in town would be very exciting.

  2. I remember the Zenith Telivision store on the north ground floor corner of 666..some of the seminal moments of history, the best and worst were shared watching thru the glass with the crowd on the 53rd street sidewalk.
