This part of the construction site looks close to wrapping up, hopefully 15HY will follow

Man, I haven't seen that angle looking up the High Line in a while. We've known for a while this was going to be big, but that is looking seriously enormous. And I'm starting to better appreciate the "cutaway" which will give this thing a feeling of inclusiveness to passersby (but hopefully not a feeling of intrusiveness to the people working at Coach).

Here's a photo of mine from ~ 2 weeks ago looking up the south face of 10 HY from the High Line:

8.14.2014


Since we're near the end of the month I checked if themodulorman had posted a photo of the elevation marked on one of the 10 HY columns. He had not (yet) but I think his sketch (below) explains everything regarding HY along 10th ave. 10 HY is on the left:


themodulorman

8.27.2014?
On the physical implementation side, the FB photo reposted below shows that they are getting closer to extending the overbuild platform (really for 30 HY) over the eastern end of the Amtrak Gateway tunnel concrete casing. The yellow crane is sitiing on timber matting that is sitting on crushed rock that is sitting on top of the tunnel's concrete casing. Note the steel column for the overbuild platform on the trailer. Looking NE from the current overbuild platform/retail podium, sorta opposite of themodulorman sketch above...

That's quite the drawing. I wonder if he's involved with CUSP as well as KPF? Clearly he just needs to join SSP.

25% of all passerbys become shoppers... I'd love to know where that statistic comes from.

Some other selections from his Moleskin that feature 10 HY, which he refers to as Tower C. I think he must specialize in glass / curtain wall stuff (which would explain why he takes pictures of the cladding panel brackets). Also a talented sketcher.

Yeah: it reminded me that I used to sketch in paper notebooks decades ago. He'll be at the AIA NYS Design Conf Oct9-11 in beautiful Saratoga Springs.

Quoting from author Steven Johnson, “It is one of the great truisms of our time that we live in an age of technological acceleration.” New technologies are impacting the way architecture is taught, practiced, and built. From 3-D printing to BIM; from prefabrication, to modular design, today’s design innovators are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible and changing the fabric of our built environment.
I'm assuming they will test fit curtain wall panels in the next couple of months.

I was happy to see my reasonable assumption regarding Tutor-Perini building the eastern end of the tunnel box concrete casing up to grade ~now come true. two weeks ago that end of the tunnel box looked like this:
8.14.2014


~now

The steel column on the truck looks similar to the northernmost columns in the 8.14 photo.

I'm also assuming we'll see photos of the Culture Shed plaza concrete deck poured soon...

Does anyone know the official height of the building right now then?
Even just a rounded height would be nice!

Hemeroscopium - It looks massive there!

It's really going to dominate all of the west side between Midtown and Downtown when viewed from Jersey. Nothing even comes close to this size that close to the water.

Edit: Pics for illustration. In all these, you can use the AP building and the white OHM condo building to place where 10 HY will be. It's going to be well over twice as tall as OHM, so the apparent magnitude, especially from Weehawken, will make it dominate.

Far west side midtown from NJ

Thank you for digging up those photos and the mention of Weehawken, north of Hoboken, NJ. I just like the names...

I've taken the liberty of zooming in on the Nexis4Jersey09 photo (PLENTY of resolution) to highlight 10 HY (2 months ago) and it's then height relative to Abington House (behind it), etc. I assume those are original WTC twin tower tridents in a Weehawken park in the bottom left of the snip.
I suggest somebody thank Nexis4Jersey09 for the photo & mention that more of the Hudson Yards area from Jersey would be appreciated...

ANIMAL New York flew a drone over Phase 3 of the High Line and got some great shots of the platform in progress as well.

I know why they didn't (big ol' safety risk), but I wish Animal had flown through "Coach Passage."

Nice vid! Cant' wait until phase 2 opens up so I can watch all the cool happenings going on in the Hudson Yards!

Is there a target open date for phase 2 of the highline??

I think you mean phase 3 which is "the High Line at the Rail Yards" that the drone inspects. From Aanimalnewyork's asociated blurb:

Quote:
“We haven’t made a public announcement of the opening date yet, but it’s forthcoming,” wrote Christian Barclay, Communications Assistant for Friends of the High Line, in an email to ANIMAL.
http://animalnewyork.com/2014/heres-...ne-looks-like/

The animalnewyork drone nicely captures the open/not-open divide of the High Line park sections with 10 HY as a backdrop on the right. It also looks like they have poured some of the concrete deck of the Culture Shed plaza and the overbuild platform. Looking north, map inset (with old imagery) in bottom left of screen cap shows drone position.

Yea that's what I meant. Thanks.

I can't wait until it opens. You will have a front seat watching the whole Yards develop and grow.

Speaking of the highline, the opening date is Sept 21st. Can’t wait to check it out.

Upstairs, a Walk on the Wild Side
Unruly Final Section of High Line to Open

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/07/ar...open.html?_r=0

Quote:
When the High Line at the Rail Yards, the final section of the elevated park, opens on Sept. 21, we will no longer have to stop at 30th Street and stare longingly through the construction gate at the Queen Anne’s Lace blooming in wild profusion along the old tracks.

We can walk out on a wide plaza made of the familiar concrete planks, tapered so that plants appear to be pushing up out of the crevices. It’s the same planking system that flows from Gansevoort Street, a mile south, where the High Line begins in the heart of the meatpacking district, in the dappled light of a birch grove.

The northernmost $75 million section has the same benches, too — modernist perches, of ipe, a tropical hardwood, and precast concrete, that appear to peel up from the floor. But now, they have morphed into picnic tables and even a seesaw for children, as one heads west, along a grove of Kentucky coffee trees toward the river. (Slide show in link)
