Rogers wins New York tower contest

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 winner will be officially announced next week.

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.
