15 Penn Plaza in New York Approved

New York's 15 Penn Plaza - Vornado rendering New York’s 15 Penn Plaza – Vornado rendering City authorities on Wednesday approved plans to build a 67-floor skyscraper near New York City’s tallest structure, the Empire State Building, over objections from owners of the iconic landmark. The City Council Land Use Committee voted today in favor of Vornado’s roughly 1,200-foot, Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed 15 Penn Plaza, despite protests from Empire State Building owner Anthony Malkin that it would mar the city’s skyline. But while New York, and the nation, are obsessed about whether a certain cultural center should go up in lower Manhattan, few noticed that the Penn Plaza plan will bring down the legendary Hotel Pennsylvania. The hotel, a 25-story, once-magnificent edifice built in 1919, has a rich history, an essential part of which is bound up with my father’s first hit as a songwriter.
