The Port Authority Bus Terminal, on Eighth Avenue just blocks from Times Square, is considered one of the ugliest buildings in all of New York City. Using a 6,000 square foot stainless steel fabric embedded with LED lights, the entire structure will be lit up with graphics and lighting design through a large scale application called Mediamesh, developed by GKD-USA, a collaboration between a German light engineer firm and an American metal fabric manufacturer. Although still not very attractive to look at for the time being, the Port Authority does get credit for trying to make an improvement and implement some green technology to a building that hasn’t changed much in the past 50 years.

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. When the Port Authority Bus Terminal opened in 1950, it helped New York City funnel a growing number of buses carrying commuters into Manhattan’s West Side. Back in 2006, some of New York City’s transit hubs used Baroque music to keep unwanted loitering down to a minimum. Pop music was the soundtrack in Pennsylvania Station until 1995, but the mix of instrumentalized Beatles songs and top 40 hits proved irritating to customers and did little to improve the station’s atmosphere, according to [Amtrak spokesman Richard] Rubel. The on-again, off-again plans to build an office tower over the Port Authority Bus Terminal took at least a conceptual step forward on Thursday afternoon with the unveiling of three possible designs by three leading architectural firms.
Easily the most striking of the three is a constructivist assemblage by the London firm Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners, which is also designing Tower 3 at the World Trade Center site. In complete contrast, for its suavity and lucidity, is a proposal by the Manhattan firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Architects. Somewhere between these two is the proposal by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects of New Haven, whose overall form is monolithic but accentuated with a curtain wall on the north and south sides in a kind of monumental basketweave pattern. The 40-story, 1.3-million-square-foot office tower is to be developed by a joint venture of Vornado Realty Trust and the Lawrence Ruben Company, which is leasing the air rights over the terminal for 99 years.


Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners has won a competition to design a 42-storey skyscraper in Manhattan, New York.
The London-based practice saw off strong competitors in the shape of Pelli Clarke Pelli and KPF to bag the commission by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Rogers' new tower will be located above the northern wing of the Port Authority Bus Terminal in central Manhattan. The practice's design was the smallest of the three, with Pelli and KPF submitting 47 and 48-storey towers respectively. It is understood that the Port Authority is optimistic about the project, despite the financial chaos that is hitting New York at present and is hoping to start on site as early as spring 2009. It will be the second skyscraper Rogers will design in Manhattan, after taking on Tower 3 at the World Trade Centre site, where he will work alongside Foster + Partners and Maki and Associates. The tower will rise directly accross 8th Avenue from 11 Times Square, currently under construction. Wasn't my first choice in design, but it's not a bad looking design at that, plus it's another 800+ footer for the city.
The London-based Architect’s Journal reports that British starchitect Lord Richard Rogers has won a contest to design the planned tower on top of the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
The tower, which Steve Roth’s Vornado would develop, is a proposed 42-story office building that invokes the crude, exoskeletal design of the bus station below.
This summer, when the Port Authority unveiled the three competing designs, the bi-state agency gave Vornado, in a venture with the Lawrence Ruben Company, an extra year—until August 2009—before it is supposed to fully sign off on the deal. The NYT building almost certainly has the most broad front view of all the skyscrapers in Manhattan; its reign in that field will unfortunately be short, but the tower blocking it looks quite worthy to do it. The LED lights will add a much needed aesthetic relief to a structure that as of now, no where near matches the light display of surrounding Times Square.


The switch to baroque music from pop was intended to add some much-needed gravitas to the station, he said, and to act as a deterrent against loitering.
It takes the form of four discrete boxes stacked atop one another and bound together by open diagonal trusswork that echoes the bold X-shaped steel braces girdling the main terminal below. The central element of this plan is a sheer, glass-clad tower whose surface has an almost icy gleam. The REIT has no tenant signed to take any space in the planned tower, which would go up across the street from a new 1 million-square-foot tower currently under construction, 11 Times Square. While on the outside the uninviting facade will be completely covered, from the inside, one will still be able to get a good view of outside. But then again, that dark and gritty industrial appearance does give it that New York feel. When classical music was piped into convenience store parking lots, loitering decreased, a study has shown. That tower is in the later stages of construction and still has no tenants, a worry for developer SJP Properties as the leasing market has slowed to a crawl. What with Hudson Yards finally getting built by then (I guess it should be partially or almost finished by then) and this and several other towers going up (I'd assume more will be proposed), should be MUCH nicer.
