Following the state’s plan to upgrade and expand Pennsylvania Station, Vornado Realty Trust has announced plans to renovate and interconnect 57-story One Penn Plaza and 29-story Two Penn Plaza, completed in 1972 and 1968 respectively, into a massive 4.2-million-square-foot office complex. The two buildings are located directly adjacent to and above Penn Station, in Midtown, between West 31st and 34th streets and Seventh and Eighth avenues. According to The Real Deal, the renovation project would improve desirability and tenant mobility and allow for new retail and amenity opportunities. Two Penn Plaza would get a new floor-to-ceiling glass façade and One Penn Plaza would receive “a more conventional upgrade.” Start and completion dates have not been disclosed, and a designer has not yet been revealed.

  1. Wouldn’t it be better to simply demolish Two Penn Plaza? It is a pretty useless building.
