Rogers, Pelli and Kohn compete for Port Authority Tower design 

At its board meeting today, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey unveiled three possible designs for a tower to be built over its bus terminal in Midtown Manhattan. The designs were solicited from the UK based Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and from the US firms Pelli Clarke Pelli and Kohn Pederson Fox.

The project will add approximately 1.3 million sq ft of sustainable first-class office space above the terminal and allow for significant improvements to the terminal facility, including new mass transit opportunities for commuters through increased bus capacity and the renovation of approximately 60,000 sq ft within the existing North Wing for retail use. It is expected to generate approximately $500 million for the Port Authority over the term of the lease.

The Port gave no indication as to when an architect for the project will be selected. Vornado Realty will develop the project.
