I wish that the High Line was more separated from this project.

Related seems to be treating the HL like they own it ... I don't like that. The HL is not just a way to get to their buildings, its a destination in and of itself.

I don't mind the South Tower having an overhang over the Spur ... but I don't really like the Related Culture Shed/park being so merged with the High Line like that ... I want the High Line to be a ribbon ABOVE all of this, not integrated into it.

There are already miles of the High Line that stretch above everything. This isn't going to take the already insanely popular parts of the park away. Merging public spaces that way is going to greatly benefit both projects.

I never knew the highline existed until the Hudson Yards projects... and now it will be a place to go when I have a trip to New York!
so I guess it will benefit it

Yeesh! I thought I had the wrong link when I saw all those photos of annoying looking people with clothes that are intentionally too small. But the photos of the Highline area are nice.

I think the first few floors are rather tall. The renders show a large lobby level with the High Line

Yah. I assume that render is looking WSW...

Can you snap a few photos from the HL on whether they are pouring the floors/have poured the floor for the plaza around the core, butting up to the HL?
On October 3rd, it looked they were not far away from being able to pour, but what do I know:

Is the drill on 10th Ave gone?

Thanks.

Renderings of “The Spur” at the Eastern Rail Yard where it will meet the South Tower (Coach) of the Hudson Yards development. (Renderings by James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Courtesy of the City of New York and Friends of the High Line.)

10th Avenue Spur of the Hi-Line

http://www.smartplanet.com/blog/desi...-revealed/5009

I did not realize there will be a portion of the hi-line extended out and over 10th Ave and W 30th street intersection. Looks really nice.

It is definitely a must see.

Seems like the collums on the other site of the high line are a bit behind the floors.

This is a video made a few years back of how the HY would look like (outdated) walking within the Hi-line, park and plaza.

http://vimeo.com/zumllc/3d-animation-company

This video will help you to visualize how awesome it would be walking in the middle of this vertical concrete and steel jungle soaking in all the scenes.

Yes, that's the correct orientation. The drill on 10th ave is still there, noisily going about it's business. As for the floors, it's really hard to tell what's been poured, due to all the formwork really obstructing the view. But they did some serious pouring two days ago before the core jumped.

I shant be able to snap any pics for a while, going on vacation tomorrow.

I'm already excited to see how much will have changed when I get back.

Thanks for the info & the photos.

I don't know how many drills they had working on the Coach Tower foundations last winter but progress on the Amtrak Gateway tunnel box should be pretty good with three drills operating now.

So maybe they WILL have rail yard platform foundation start in Jan 2014 & platform steel erection start in June.

I'm interested in seeing how the plaza/platform REALLY integrate with the Phase 3 High Line.
The photo snip below (original modularman) shows that transition Friday 10/11/2013, looking South from the Coach Tower, from just west of the core. I was wrong with my guesstimate that they would have poured concrete for the Coach Tower plaza/floor/whatever-you-call-it. You can see the concrete filigree panels (forming the future ceiling) in the foreground, High Line phase 3 running left-right across ~ middle. The north end of HL phase 2 is on the right w/ people standing on it, checking out the construction, taking photos. Or maybe they're admiring the AP/Daily News building...The elevator and stairs up to the High Line are under the blue topped scaffolding behind the porta potties. The porta-potties are sitting on the Coach passage section of the High Line, which has not been fully rehabilitated.

Thanks for posting themodularman's latest for the Coach tower.

The snip below shows how the platform/plaza will clear the roof of the MOE building, once the MOE's parapet is removed. The view is NW from west of the Coach tower core.

Snip from Untitled panorama by themodulorman, on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/themodulorman/10213726484/

And this snip is a different perspective, showing the Coach Tower/High Line on the right, MOE building in middle and the three drills working on the secant pile walls. It looks to me that they have a few of the secant piles in the floor of the West Side Yards already. The drill on 10th Ave has been drilling for a couple of weeks now: I assume it's creating the eastern wall of this tunnel box section. The secant pile walls will enable excavation/dewatering within their rectangular perimeter and then the construction of the eastern section of the tunnel box within the excavation into the bedrock. I assume these same drills will then start the overbuild platform foundation work in January with platform steel starting in June. The overbuild platform will cover the MOE building shown below AND it's to-be-reconstructed northern section.

Original photo Buck Ennis/Crains New York: http://www.crainsnewyork.com/apps/pb...site.jpg?q=100

This platform area will support the 1 million sq ft shopping mall (with probable 20-year 40% property tax break) that will be built on top:
http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...54#article_tab

Update: According to reportage in today's Bloomberg News the shopping mall on the platform has grown to 1.1 million sq ft: "five levels of shopping totaling 1.1 million square feet."

This section used to run into what is now the USPS' Morgan General Mail Facility (the block between 30th & 29th street and 10th to 9th Ave), for use by mail trains.
This Timothy Schenck photo from ~2 months ago (& the accompanying article) leads me to believe that the 10th Ave spur will be quite sedate compared to that rendering above
PS: This photo also has a good view of the NYC DEP access (between the Coach Tower & 10th Ave) to the 600 foot shaft down to Water Tunnel #3's low point in Manhattan:

And here's a photo of the eastern end of the 10th Ave spur taken in September from the Ohm building. It just basically verifies that concrete deck now consists of new (lighter color) and old slabs. Looking east; I included a section of the Manhattan West gantry crane (upper left) for some color/visual interest
