I hope that Roth doesn’t prioritize this over 350 Park.

So long as Blackrock's ambitions are set, I think 350 Park will have a good chance of rising.

I just hope they don't commit to say Hudson Yards. I'd like to see that Park Avenue tower.

I concur.

A parking lot on this site, even a temporary one, would be absurd. One of the good things about the overall Empire Station redevelopment is that it gets rid of the above ground parking lots. Midtown isn’t the place for that, especially next to the city’s greatest transportation center.

350 Park is on it’s own timeline, and won’t be available for development for a few years. This site is available now, and with the hotel no longer operating (it was always an excuse to hold on), becomes that much more a priority.

As the first major new office tower to go up in the area, 15 Penn will be a catalyst for change, much the same way as the Coach tower was for the Hudson Yards. (Even with 1 and 2 Penn getting makeovers).
