Depends on the research paper...what are you trying to show?

What is that massive section of identical housing in the lower right corner of the picture, and do they have any plans of knocking it all down and building something else there?

Absolutely no plans to knock it down, that's Stuyvesant Town...

Just a clean, overall shot of the building, preferably from the air.

I like this one, though it doesn't show the lower levels of the building. Always remember to check with the photographer.

Little info from the NY Post...

As the New York Observer reported, Community Board 5 delivered a split decision on Vornado's 15 Penn Plaza tower plan: 36-1 against.

But at the April 15 public hearing, Vornado wheeled in some surprising support for its proposal, which would involve building $100 million-plus in transit improvements at Herald Square and Penn Station in exchange for zoning bonuses that would allow a tower of over 2 million square feet -- nearly twice what it can build as-of-right.

In addition to predictable yea's from the Real Estate Board of New York and construction unions, there was backing from the Regional Plan Association, which has opposed many large-scale commercial projects, Columbia University's Real Estate Development Program and the NYC Transit Riders' Council.

There was also a pro-Vornado brief from Durst Fetner, a partnership that owns the Epic apartment building nearby.

Partner Douglas Durst is said to have promised his backing in exchange for Vornado chopping 13 feet off its project's height of 1,216 feet so it would be one foot shorter than Durst's One Bryant Park, the new Bank of America tower that has a gala "grand opening" on May 20 -- "but no one's sure if Douglas was being tongue-in-cheek," an insider chuckled.
Maybe they will unveil a lighting for the spire?

Even though the Bank of America Tower is one of my favorite skyscrapers ever, it would be a sin if they cut the height of 15 Penn Plaza and it would technically be shorter than the Bank of America Tower. I'm guessing it was a joke however.

I'm sure it was a joke. Vornado wouldn't need Durst's support that much. I'm still waiting to see whay they have in store for this gala "grand opening".

I would hope so, it's pointless having a 200 foot spire in the dark at night.

I totally agree with you all, I don't think this building has made its true encore yet and that the mast probably will be lit up sometime in the future! I even look at this tower from the north from the GE building and there are still elements wrapped in white.

Guys I have a question about that tower: CTBUH says it's a fully steel building? But most skyscrapers of the 21st century have a "composite structure". Hasn't this tower a concrete core??

But if it has one the structural material should be composite. I will ask back CTBUH.
