Fresh renderings by DBOX shed new light on PENN 15, a 56-story, 1,200-foot-tall commercial skyscraper at 15 Penn Plaza in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Foster + Partners and developed by Vornado Realty Trust, the 2.7 million-square-foot supertall will rise from the site of the Hotel Pennsylvania, which has been closed since early 2020 and is beginning the demolition process. The tower will be the tallest component in the 7.4-million-square-foot Penn District master plan, on a plot bound by Seventh Avenue to the west, West 32nd Street to the south, and West 33rd Street to the north.

Demolition is underway at 570 Fifth Avenue, the site of a potential supertall skyscraper in Midtown, Manhattan. Developed by Extell, the tower could reach a height of 1,100 feet and 78 floors on a 43,011-square-foot plot at the corner of Fifth Avenue and West 46th Street. The parcel had mostly sat vacant for the past several years, and includes several old structures that are now in the process of being razed. There is still no architect publicly announced, nor clear indication of the building’s programming, though a series of zoning and massing diagrams and ground-floor plans suggest either an office complex or a residential and hotel development, with the latter reaching supertall status.
