About Madison Square Garden Towers
The Madison Square Garden Towers are twin 1,400 ft (427 m)-tall residential skyscrapers proposed for construction north of Madison Square Garden in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. The project features a complex of seven buildings, including a stadium and a new Penn Station. The cost of the project is USD$ 14 billion. The architects Norman Foster, David Childs, and the architectural firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill are designing the project. The owners are Stephen Ross of Related Cos. and Steven Roth of Vornado Realty Trust. The towers would rise as two of the tallest structures in the Midtown Manhattan skyline, with one rising higher than the Empire State Building, currently New York's tallest building at 1,250 feet (381 m) and would also be higher than the roof, though not the spire, of One World Trade Center.
