Video: Renewing Midtown - You Can't Always Knock Them Down

At Modern All Over Again, our annual conference on October 2, we convened an exceptional array of industry experts to discuss how to best revitalize and retrofit midcentury commercial buildings, public housing, and energy infrastructure in New York City. For the first time, we are sharing videos from those discussions.

In today’s installment, watch Renewing Midtown - Part 2: You Can’t Knock Always Knock Them Down – featuring Glen Weiss, Executive VP & Director of Leasing at Vornado Realty Trust, who discusses how to “make buildings better when you can’t knock them down.” Weiss, who started working with Vornado Realty in 1986, has known much of their building stock since “I was a teenager.”  And, he adds, “a lot of things have not changed.” Watch the video to hear how Vornado Realty has been redeveloping their assets and how that has been their "bread and butter" for many years.
