Vornado Tops Out Construction on PENN 2’s The Bustle

Vornado Realty Trust topped out construction of the Bustle, spanning two full block frontages along Seventh Avenue in Midtown South to create an imposing new arrival for Penn Station and a distinctive new entrance to Vornado’s PENN 2.  An 88,000-square-foot space with a triple-height lobby and direct access to Penn Station, the Bustle will also contain three-quarters of an acre of dynamic public art.  

PENN 2, the REIT’s adaptive reuse commercial office building, will be a focal point of the new and evolving PENN District. The Bustle will relocate the building’s existing entrance to the newly built 33rd Street Plaza.  

Anchor tenant Madison Square Garden committed to a 20-year, 365,000 square foot lease at PENN 2. Other significant leases at the PENN District include Apple at PENN 11, Meta at the Farley Building (adjacent to the newly renovated Moynihan Train Hall and Moynihan Food Hall) and Empire at PENN 1.
