I just noticed that UrbanImpressionist's photo shows that they have removed the roof from the eastern end of the remaining portion of the LIRR MoE Bldg. I assume the roof removal (along with the parapet that contains the fake windows) is prep for the overbuild platform. This is right around where the label PHASE 2A appears in the bottom diagram. The tunnel box excavation is the gray PHASE 3 area.
The photo below is a zoomed-in snip of his 12-26 photo. Besides the missing roof/exposed roof beams, you can also see that they are parking the Guzzler vacuum trucks on 10th Ave when they are not riding on the rails in the West Side Yard, starting the excavation holes/templates for the overbuild caissons.:

Hudson Yards retail gets underway, with construction and marketing set to begin at Far West Side site this month
http://therealdeal.com/issues_articl...gets-underway/

Quote:
About 750,000 square feet of pricey retail space is hitting the market in the next few weeks, as the Related Companies formally starts its search for tenants at its Hudson Yards project.

A year after construction started on Manhattan’s Far West Side, and with two major office tenants signed on to the gargantuan project — purse purveyor Coach and cosmetics giant L’Oreal — Related declined to say whether any retail tenants are signed on other than the already-touted Fairway Market.

But brokers say Related, which is partnered with Oxford Properties on the $4 billion venture, is in talks for an anchor tenant such as a department store, and possibly a 60,000- to 80,000-square-foot movie theater. And Related said construction and marketing will begin on the retail space this month.
Quote:
One major possibility Related is supposedly considering as the anchor tenant is fine art and antiques auction house Sotheby’s, which is also parent to the residential real estate brokerage of the same name, said Faith Hope Consolo, head of Douglas Elliman’s retail division. Sotheby’s would take retail, office and showroom space if a deal can be worked out, Consolo said.

The auction house put its Upper East Side headquarters, at 1334 York Avenue, on the market in the fall. Roseman, who is not working with Sotheby’s, has also heard that “Sotheby’s is in the market.”

A Sotheby’s representative told TRD, “Sotheby’s continues to explore real estate options, but no decisions have been made.”

Related’s Kenneth Himmel as well as R. Webber Hudson, who seems aptly named, are spearheading the retail leasing effort for Hudson Yards. They have not signed an exclusive with any brokerage to represent them, but they have not ruled out the possibility, Hudson told TRD
Quote:
Richard Hodos of CBRE Group said he spoke with Related on behalf of more than one client. While he would not specify which ones, he said he represents Limited Brands, which owns Henri Bendel, Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret, as well as GCD Consultants, the retail real estate advisers for L.L. Bean and fashion designer Tory Burch.

“If you look at Time Warner Center, I think all of those tenants are extremely successful,” Hodos said. “It’s likely you would see most of those tenants at Hudson Yards as well.”

But there is a catch. The sales agreement for Coach’s 740,000-square-foot office condominium stipulates that none of its direct competitors take space in the megaproject’s South Tower, as the Wall Street Journal reported in September. That would mean no J. Crew, which has a large second-floor space at the Time Warner Center, according to the Journal, as well as no Polo Ralph Lauren or Burberry — and likely no Henri Bendel.

Big numbers

The bulk of the retail that doesn’t go to an anchor will fill out the balance of the seven floors of what Related is calling a “podium,” between 10 and 30 Hudson Yards, located along 10th Avenue between 30th and 33rd streets. Construction has started on 10, but work on 30 has not begun, Rose said.

Those spaces will go to smaller, non-anchor retailers looking for 30,000 square feet or less, a source said.

CBRE’s Hodos estimated the total retail for non-anchor tenants in the podium at about 290,000 square feet, but Related would not confirm that figure, insisting that plans are still up in the air.

Related executives said the fashion retailers in the podium would be “sorted by sensibility,” meaning there would be an area where luxury retailers are clustered, and perhaps one for retailers focused on teens. The restriction barring Coach competitors does not apply to the podium, Rose said

Dining options, which will also be in the podium, are likewise expected to run the gamut. A concept modeled after celebrity chef Mario Batali’s massive Flatiron District Italian market Eataly, called the Kitchens, will offer prepared foods from different providers, Rose said. At least one very upscale restaurant is also being sought — think “Bouchon or Per Se,” she said — although no leases have been signed.

Hudson said the food and beverage offerings would focus on local favorites, but wouldn’t name which high-profile New York chefs he has spoken with, beyond a confident, “All of them.”

Hodos said he believed Related to be mulling a concept like Stone Rose — a swanky lounge at the Time Warner Center — that would take about 75,000 square feet, probably at the top of the podium. Hodos estimated the dining terrace, an outdoor space at the podium, and the Kitchens would take 36,000 square feet or so.

In addition, there will be retail in the base of the Coach tower, at the southwest corner of 30th Street and 10th Avenue, but only about 10,000 square feet, Rose said.

Under the High Line, along the walk up 10th Avenue to the shiny shopping center, will be Fairway, occupying 48,000 square feet, Hudson said.

Although the space is expected to be lucrative, whoever leases there will have to shell out big money.

“They are going to push the envelope as much as they can with rents,” Hodos said. Rents on par with those at the Time Warner Center would put the ask at $800 to $1,200 per square foot, a hefty sum for 10th Avenue, Hodos said. Lee & Associates’ Schwarz said retail rents at nearby Silver Towers are about “$60 to $70 a square foot” while rents for retail in the World Trade Center reportedly run between $500 and $600 per square foot.

“This is an expensive building, so there will be some big numbers to hit,” Hudson admitted.

And, Hudson said, prospective retail tenants should expect to participate in a “percentage rent,” a common lease provision whereby a retailer gives a percentage of sales revenue over a certain amount to the landlord.

While certain retailers — famously Apple — refuse such deals, most retailers looking at Hudson Yards know that Related generally requires percentage rent in its deals. Hudson predicted the center would probably attract between 20 million and 25 million visitors a year.

In 2011, Crain’s reported that the average tenant at the Time Warner Center was producing $1,600 per square foot per year, of which Related nabs a percentage. The national average under such an agreement is $1,200, it said.

A great anchor for the Hudson Yard project. Good to see this project underway.

New photos from the HY Facebook Page

10 Hudson Yards is one of only a few buildings in New York City that will directly integrate with the High Line. The elevated park will literally pass through the structure of the building.
Bridging the gap! I noticed it on Friday, but couldn't get any decent pictures.

For my interests, this project will REALLY get underway when visually obvious construction of the caisson foundations gets underway and the overbuild steel starts going up.

j-biz's last photos showed two of the vertical drill rigs sitting in "Phase 1"
area but they did not seem to be active.

Bridging the gap, indeed! That is a milestone, especially when you consider that September (the topping out) ends ~8 and half months from now. And a couple of those months are winter: I still remember the HEAVY March snowstorm of last year.

flickr's the modulorman has posted new photos Friday

I think this one underneath the High Line is the most interesting:

What do you mean by that? I'm a bit lost

And j-biz, are those photos you've just posted showing the construction over the highline from the outer columns to the main building?

He's referring to the platform they're going to build over the rail yard adjacent to 10 HY. They've got to finish that before construction can commence on the north tower. I've been posting periodic photos of the work over there in the 30 HY thread.

Yep!
Yep, I was referring to maximalist's comment (I assume) on an anchor tenant for the 750K square ft of HY retail space AND the fact that a lot of the retail will go into the overbuild "podium" between the south & north towers.

My reference to the overbuild foundation caisson drills was a reference to this j-biz photo, which shows the two yellow drill masts almost aligned with the "canyon" of 31st. The south tower/10 HY is wrapped in plastic and the remaining portion of the LIRR's MoE building is behind(east) of the drills. The LIRR building will be fully rebuilt by Tutor-Perini with, I assume, some new columnss passing through it to support the overbuild retail "podium":

j-biz http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/11857126075/

The drills are sitting in the Phase 1 area of this diagram from the Amtrak Gateway tunnel box study. I'm ASSUMING Phase 1 is a reference to the build sequence for the overbuild caissons:


For historical perspective here's a wavz13 provided piece of Manhattan/High Line history from ~81 years. It shows the construction of the north-south section of the High Line when Herbert Hoover was the lame-duck president (Dec 13, 1932):

wavz13 http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3806/1...0718b27f_b.jpg

Further historical note: the photo is attributed to NY Central (railroad), George A. Fuller Company. NYCRR was a competitor to the Pennsylvania RR.
From wikipedia:
Among the many buildings constructed by the Fuller Company under Black were the Pennsylvania Station, the Flatiron Building, R.H. Macy's flagship store on Broadway and 34th Street, lauded at the time as the biggest store in the world, the New York Times Building in Times Square, the Plaza Hotel on Grand Army Plaza and Central Park South and the Savoy-Plaza Hotel across Fifth Avenue, the biggest hotel in the world at the time, designed by McKim, Mead & White, and demolished in 1964.[21]

The PennRR sold the air-rights to NY Penn's station and demolished the classic, above ground, headhouse in the 1960s. The overbuild of the Penn Station bowels produced One & two Penn Plaza, which appears in the j-biz photo above.
The PennRR continued doing poorly & merged with with NYCRR, creating the Penn Central, which went further broke (sorta like the current American Airlines & US Air). Amtrak inherited the intercity passenger operations of the Penn Central (& others) & owns the MUCH-maligned below grade remnants of NY's Penn Station and (I assume) the open pit that Manhattan West is overbuilding. The MTA/LIRR wound up with the NY Central's former freight yard between 30th & 33rd streets. The MTA/LIRR rebuilt the NYCRR yard as the West Side Yard and tunneled under 10th Ave to cnnect it to Amtrak's open Penn Station pit. The LIRR's WSY is in the process of being overbuilt (& tunneled under for Amtrak) NOW to create Hudson Yards.

The Friends of the High Line have a great gallery of images from that same set on their website here. A number of them even include the building I work in now:

image hosted on flickr


This picture is looking east down the High Line spur as it is being built. You can see the enormous Morgan General Mail Facility on the far right (still there), but the Westyard Distribution Center (AP Building), wouldn't be built for almost 40 more years. Runkel Brothers Chocolate made (obviously) chocolate and other cocoa products starting in the late 19th century. They were absorbed by Nestlé in the 1980s. The shorter buildings in front along 10th ave must have been demolished decades ago

Sorry for the semi-o/t post, though this is nearly the precise spot 10 HY is currently covering.
