Is there any renderings of them together?

Haven’t been able to find any. I remember seeing a hand drawing of it but that was like 20 years ago.

I’ll look through my two KPF books from before the mid 90’s. I didn’t see anything on the internet

The only thing I could find from both of my books. The sites for the other two towers are labeled, but all three towers are not pictured together in both books. Still, I feel like I saw a rendering of the three towers

I couldn’t find anything else in my three books from KPF, but I did find this drawing via SSP.


The massing diagram showing the original 3 tower proposal by Lincoln Properties late 1980s.

I just don’t know if KPF has more information about their 383 Madison Ave. Scheme III has been published. If not all the information is in the book published in 1992.

All i recognized was Larkin building and Metropolitan life North but scrolling a bit I found Civic Center in downtown Manhattan.
Also while i’m here was the Chicago world trade actually meant to be built or was it just a visión?

Is it actually cancelled? It’s not a vision but i never Heard that the plan was rejected so it may have a small chance still.
