Quote:
HUDSON YARDS—Mitsui Fudosan America, the Japanese real estate group that recently acquired a 92.09 percent stake in 55 Hudson Yards from Related Companies for $259 million, has broken ground on the 51-story office tower. The company announced the groundbreaking today along with Related and Oxford Properties Group, who control the remaining 7.91 percent. The $1.4 billion tower, designed by A. Eugene Kohn and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, is expected to be ready for tenants in 2017

I'm so happy they are keeping the design. It's truly an elegant building.

When can we expect construction to start?

It seems, All of Related's towers will be under construction soon except for 50 Hudson. They just have to focus getting an anchor for that tower and at the same time probably could start Phase 2 earlier than expected.

Remember that the foundations are already down there. The current contractors are basically going to remove the fill/mud-concrete-slab placed there by the MTA's contractors.

The Japanese bank seems to have money to invest...

Yes, but thanks to towerpower123 for the photos of the overbuild construction in the NW corner of the West Side Storage Yards (east of 11th Ave).

With that crook Sheldon Silver being indicted on corruption charges, I can't help myself but think of the project he helped destroy.

Mitsui Fudosan's press release for this project.

Quote:
Mitsui Fudosan to Participate in “Fifty Five Hudson Yards” Project, Part of Largest-Ever Private Development in the US

January 26, 2015

Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. (Head Office: 1-1 Nihonbashi-Muromachi 2-Chome, Chuo-ku, Tokyo) announced today that through its US subsidiary, Mitsui Fudosan America, Inc. (President and CEO: Yukio Yoshida), it will participate in a New York office building development project. The project will construct one of the office buildings making up Hudson Yards, the largest-scale complex development in Manhattan, and measured by gross floor area represents the largest office building development project ever undertaken in Manhattan by a Japanese company. The building commenced construction last week and is scheduled for completion in 2018.

Hudson Yards is the largest private development project in the United States. The project is located at west Manhattan, development projects are proceeding. It will create some 11 hectares of space in total, and will encompass five office buildings occupied by tenants including the headquarters of Coach, Inc., L’Oreal USA, SAP and Time Warner Inc., a shopping complex boasting Manhattan’s first Neiman Marcus store, high-rise condominiums, a luxury hotel, a culture space and a school. Part of the 1.6 hectare Hudson Park & Boulevard planned for the northern boundary of the development and directly adjacent to Fifty Five Hudson Yards will open soon, and the already fully opened High Line, a park built on an abandoned elevated freight line, will also connect to the site. The development is led by Related Companies (“Related”), a prominent international real estate firm, and Oxford Properties Group (“Oxford”), the real estate investment and development arm of OMERS (Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System), one of Canada’s largest institutional investors.

Housing mainly office space, Fifty Five Hudson Yards will have 51 floors above ground and a total gross area of 118,000 m2. It is located nearby a subway station, the Hudson Park on the entrance side, and Hudson River on the west side. This state-of-the-art office building will have floor plates facilitating efficient layouts, terrace space with views over the Hudson River and the Park, high environmental spec subject to approve the LEED Gold Certification and its exterior will incorporate designs used in the cast iron architecture characteristic of the SoHo district’s 19th century buildings. The construction will be a joint project with Related and Oxford, the leaders of the Hudson Yards development.

Mitsui Fudosan regards Fifty Five Hudson Yards as a flagship building that will be at the core of its portfolio for future overseas business. As well as offering an opportunity to expand the company’s overseas operations, the project will utilize expertise built up through the multi-faceted urban development and neighborhood creation that Mitsui Fudosan has undertaken in Japan to add further value to the Hudson Yards project.

I really hope MSG moves there. It would be a game changer & enhance considerably the surrounding area of Brookfield's MW complex.

This report gets into some more nitty-gritty detail, but it's a really interesting read.

The document is all online here: Madison Square Garden: Shaping the future of West Midtown

Images below come from Curbed, here, and were part of a presentation given on Thursday.

The report makes three proposals.

1) Move MSG to the West Annex of the Farley Post Office
2) Move MSG to the Morgan Mail Processing Facility
3) Keep MSG in it's current location, but reclaim the space around and beneath it (the floor of the arena is actually 5 stories above the street)

Of these options, #2 is their preferred course of action. The Morgan facility is one of the only consolidated plots large enough to accommodate a modern stadium AND perhaps be acquirable (though they only touched on that sticking point for a moment).

Schematic for option 2:



Looking east from 10th Ave and 28th St:



Looking east from 9th ave and 31st:



For option three, here is a current cross-section of MSG followed by their proposal:





And here are some very fanciful renderings of this concept:



Entrance from 8th Ave

Lossy translations

In reality, 2016 is the scheduled opening date of the significantly expanded West End Concourse under the far eastern end of the Farley PO:

BUT the Japaneses bank does provide a more realistic time line of HY- Phase I completion in 2019:

Building foundations will be a challenge with a subway underneath.
