I hope that's not the final product; tarmac retains a lot of heat. Aside from that long bench and the views, there's nothing inviting people to stay, as if they wanted them to clear the area promptly.

But maybe I'm misjudging, for pictures are often misleading.

Yea I hope to see more greenery and maybe when the plantings mature it will look nicer. I do agree with the tarmac though and wish they do plan to eventually use wood/stone like the previous phases of the highline, however I doubt it because it is my understanding the plan for this section is to be less manicured and more wild looking.

Maybe itís too early to give the final phase final grades as it is not finished and believe there is still more work planned for it as far as aesthetics.

The media and tourists alike have unanimously given it rave reviews, so it goes to show you what the heck I know. Lol.

I love One57 and the majority in the media dislikes it, I love One Vanderbilt and it seem the majority here doesnít appreciate it and I guess Iím in the minority with this one too... but don't get me wrong I think it is nice.

I love the overlapping of the glass sheets! Glad they stuck with the renders; it adds so much to the design even though it is just a simple thing

That section of the High Line from 34th Street to where it turns the corner onto 30th Street is the "Interim Walkway" area that is temporarily laid out with tarmac and timber bench seating. As Phase 2 of the Hudson Yards takes shape, the final configuration of that section of the High Line will be implemented along with it.

NYC buildings with mega price tags

It’s not just 1 WTC — a look at other buildings with construction costs in the billions

http://therealdeal.com/issues_articl...ion-plus-club/



[QUOTE]
Quote:
It’s no shock to hear that 1 World Trade Center, the centerpiece of the famed Lower Manhattan development site, has a construction price tag of $3.8 billion dollars.
But that world-famous tower is not the only New York City building that developers are forking over that much money to construct.

“New York developers are long on Manhattan and long on New York City,” said David Pfeffer, a co-chair of the construction practice at the Manhattan-based law firm Tarter Krinsky & Drogin. “They feel this is the place they can invest in these massively expensive buildings and get long-term returns on their investments.”

This month, The Real Deal looked at three other planned and under-construction towers — all located in the Hudson Yards area — which have $1 billion-plus price tags, according to paperwork that the development companies filed to obtain tax breaks with the New York City Industrial Development Agency, which is tasked with spurring economic development in the five boroughs.

The developers at those projects are apparently confident enough in the market to take the gamble and move ahead — that is once they have an anchor tenant.

Scott Singer, president of the financial advisory firm Singer & Bassuk, characterized the prevailing optimism: “It is the willingness to stake your reputation and financial well-being and relationships on a bet as to what market conditions will be years out in the future,” he said.

Developer: Related Companies
Address: 10 Hudson Yards (380 11th Avenue)
Building size/type: 1.2 million square feet (office and retail)


Total cost of project: $1.25 billion

Related’s smaller project in Hudson Yards — 10 Hudson Yards at 380 11th Avenue — will still cost a pretty penny. The total price tag on the building is $1.25 billion, according to the company’s IDA filing.

Construction of the building, which will be home to the corporate offices of the handbag company Coach, and will also have a ground-floor Fairway Market, is underway. (The groundbreaking took place in December 2012 after Coach became the first anchor tenant to sign on at the larger Hudson Yards site.)

While the overall price of constructing the building may not be as high as Tishman Speyer’s 509 West 34th Street or Related’s other Hudson Yards towers, the cost is not that much lower on a price-per-square-foot basis.

Indeed, the all-in per-square-foot cost for building the project is $1,000, compared with $1,289 per foot for the Tishman Speyer project, for example.

The building’s $1.25 billion total breaks down like this: $640 million in hard costs, $317 million in soft costs and $289 million for land.

The buildings, mechanical systems and finishes will be high-end, according to Schotz. “You’re talking about marble in the bathrooms, and lobbies with stone finishes,” he said.

Yeah...
I believe the 7 subway extension & Phase I of HP&B will open sometime in 1Q2015 and they seem to be making good progress on 10 HY (~20 floors high this week).

Partial glass on THREE floors now, 10.2.2014

Hopefully the 2014-15 winter will be more average than the past 2013-2014 winter, which was the worst in 20 years...

AFAIK, Related is still proclaiming that 10 HY will be ready for tenants in 2015.
