The fight to preserve Grand Central TERMINAL was epic leading all the way to the Supreme Court and made landmarking for design alone legal across the USA. The best of the best buildings in NY and elsewhere are still standing as a direct result of the Grand Central Tower never being built. I rather have all those other architectural wonders than the Grand Central Tower. Personally I think I. M. Pei was evil for even participating in this plot to destroy Grand Central TERMINAL.
I totally agree. I never liked Pei and when I read about this proposal it was the final nail in the coffin, so to speak. In my opinion anyone who proposes messing with GCT should be permanently barred from practicing architecture.
