I'm so excited to know what I will be seeing from my living room in the next couple of years.

Haha thanks guys, when I first moved here, before 500 W 30St, Avalon Chelsea, and those other new buildings , my view was about 10 blocks of pure Hudson River and New Jersey. Now, even though I'm slowly being blocked off from the river, I know it won't be that bad since I will be watching ~5 skyscrapers take to the sky.
On that note, I'll be happy to provide some updates regularly.

Edit:

Maybe off topic but here's a picture from the Fourth Of July fireworks 2 years ago before 500 W 30th St and Avalon Chelsea. Again, imagine the yards in this picture.

This is from the exhibit at the AIA Center, published in SSP by Alxx611.
It shows the expectad pace of construction over the next few years.

The Center for Architecture is located at 536 LaGuardia Place.

James Russel at Bloomberg has a mixed-to-negative take on the aesthetics of the project, calling the designs "a confused assortment," and saying they "collide jarringly." Which are points I actually mostly agree with.

But here's one bit that caught me off guard, about the office layouts of the two main towers (not counting Coach's open atrium section of the South Tower):

Quote:
Related’s floor layouts are backward-looking, reflecting the energy-inefficient, low-ceilinged norm that’s claustrophobic in today’s high-density workplace.
I was under the impression these towers would have fairly high ceilinged, Class-A office space. Can anyone shed any light as to what he's talking about?

It seems that the (fat) Coach tower will be build much faster than the (slim) Corset Tower, one year from now it'll probably already dominate the area.

Here are some photos from the concrete pour yesterday. No new vertical growth for the past week or so, but lots of activity nonetheless.

The Coach Tower will DEFINITELY get built before the Corset Tower/Tower D.

Demolition/deconstruction has JUST started in the Eastern Rail Yard for Amtrak's Gateway tunnel box. Amtrak has stated this project should take ~ 24 months.

The tunnel box contractor's study FINAL REPORT from Novemeber 2012 showed the northern foundation for the Corset Tower resting on the western end of the tunnel box. The western end of the tunnel box is the last segment to be built. I assume that no significant Corset tower foundation construction can start until the tunnel box is complete.

I think virtually all the construction activity present now on the 1800's fill to the west of the coach tower is for the Culture Shed foundations/etc.

Thank you.

I always appreciate a photo of a new looking Putzmeister at work. Actually I don't know if the blue concrete pump boom/truck in the left side of the photo IS a Putzmeister or a competitor.

Thank you again for the photos.
I'd like to suggest taking photos of the LIRR MOE building in the rail yard also. That should start coming down soon, with excavation and blasting to follow.

Thread title is still misleading, should be changed to Hudson Yards North Tower | 408m | 1337ft | 80 fl | Prep.
The South Tower already has a thread in the u/c section. In addition, new threads for D and E Towers should be created.
