PENN 2 revamped design by MdeAS Architects

New Renderings Reveal PENN 2’s Renovation Plans at 2 Penn Plaza in Midtown, Manhattan

More renderings have been revealed for PENN 2, Vornado Realty Trust‘s recently commenced renovation of Two Penn Plaza, a 412-foot-tall commercial office building in Midtown. Originally designed by Charles Luckman Associates, the 31-story structure currently yields 1.61 million square feet and stands immediately to the east of Madison Square Garden along Seventh Avenue between West 31st and 33rd Streets. The project, designed by MdeAS Architects, will fully revamp the 53-year-old building’s interiors and replace its dark mid-century modern façade with a lighter, more transparent glass envelope designed by MdeAS Architects. The endeavor is among a flurry of efforts to modernize the area surrounding Penn Station, which include the proposed construction of a nearly 1,200-foot-tall, 2.7-million-square-foot office supertall designed by Foster + Partners that would rise directly across the street on the site of the Hotel Pennsylvania.

Vornado’s Supertall ‘Penn 15’ by Foster + Partners Will Rise 1,200′ After Redesign, in Midtown Manhattan

Updated renderings created by DBOX for Vornado Realty Trust showcase The Penn District, a 7.4-million-square-foot development in Midtown, Manhattan. Located within the same boundaries as the new Madison Square Garden complex from Vishaan Chakrabarti’s Practice for Architecture and Urbanism that YIMBY recently revealed, the renderings offer a more finalized version of five skyscrapers with the tallest, referred to as Penn 15, anticipated to rise nearly 1,200 feet high. Foster + Partners is designing the structures, which would stand close to the 109-year-old James A. Farley Building and Skidmore Owings & Merrill‘s newly opened Moynihan Train Hall, as well as One and Two Penn Plaza and Madison Square Garden. The redesign also appears to be a tweaked iteration of 15 Penn Plaza from a previous depiction that YIMBY showed back in May 2020.

A walk through the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea revealed a surprising observation at the site of 251 West 14th Street. Construction on the once-stalled reinforced concrete edifice now appears partially topped-out, due to the ascendance of the steel that makes up the final upper cantilevering levels of the ground-up 11-story residential project. Designed by Isay Weinfield and FORM4 Design Studio PLLC, there will be a total of 25 condominiums. YIMBY last reported that Pizzarotti is in charge of the build, which is located along West 14th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues.
