Let's get back to the building at hand. Very few details, but at least its in motion...

Giant Office Building In Midtown

Nov 27, 2012

The architecture firm Kohn Pederson Fox Associates was selected by SL Green Realty Corp. to design a giant office building next to Grand Central Terminal, according to various executives informed of the planning. When completed, the building-on the west block of Grand Central between 42nd and 43rd streets- would join the group of largest Midtown towers on the East Side. SL Green is planning the project with full of hope despite the challenging fact of building in New York. Indeed, the company is discussing with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to gain the rights to build underground connectors to Grand Central as part of pedestrian improvements.

SL Green came up with the plan as the Bloomberg administration is trying to carry on the rezoning plan of the area around Grand Central, which could give the company the right to construct a 1.4 million-square feet tower. However, Marc Holliday, SL Green's chief executive, in a conference call in July said that the company couldn't anticipate the effect of the zoning plan on the development project. "Certainly we'll have the result of the zoning amendment before we take any material step forward" on the building plan, said Mr.Holliday.
NEW YORK is Back!

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
