Rogers, Pelli, KPF: Their Visions Of A Port Authority Tower

The Port Authority at its board meeting this afternoon is taking a look at three possible designs for the planned tower over its bus terminal, with the firms of Richard Rogers, Cesar Pelli and Kohn Pedersen Fox all submitting plans.

Steve Roth’s Vornado, in the hunt for an anchor tenant, is the developer for the tower, which would sit across the street from the Renzo Piano-designed New York Times building.

Pelli Clarke Pelli designed the Bloomberg tower on Lexington Avenue for Vornado; Mr. Rogers’ firm designed the planned Tower 3 at the World Trade Center; and KPF was signed on for JPMorgan Chase’s now-scuttled new investment banking headquarters (with a notable goiter for trading floors) downtown.
