That does appear to be the case. They've been hanging formwork from it for the past couple days. I'll take another picture tomorrow morning if I remember. I can't take a clear shot in the evening from my vantage point because of the sun.

Thanks ahead of time for the photos. I briefly considered going into the city today, but decided not to due to the high & humid temps.

Apparently they've taken down the last construction crane on One WTC...

Here's the developer's bullet points for rail access to the site. Note that they mention the PATH tubes, whose nearest station is 33rd & 6th Ave. TheGoogleMachine says that's a 17-18 minute walk and then you'd have to rattle your way over to Hoboken for the use of the PATH to make sense...


subway station connection
Direct access via the new No. 7 Subway extension to regional rail routes at Grand Central Terminal
5 minute walk to Penn Station
Access to commuter service via Long Island Rail Road, New Jersey Transit, PATH and Amtrak

Most, if not all of the site has reached ground level. The core structure is at least 30 feet above ground.

That's the High Line. It was a railroad spur for freight train built during the 30's. By 1980 it was no longer in use and get derelict for more than 20 years, during that time, wild vegetation grow over it. It was going to be demolished, but a group of people foght to conserve it and build a park over it instead.
Now it is the High Line Park, a very popular place for Newyorkers and tourists. It's been opened in stages, the one going through the site of these towers is the last one to be opened. The already opened sectioms are 1,6 km. long, when this last part is completed it will be 2,3 km. long. Here some pictures of it, the first picture shows how it was before they build the park, with the wild vegetation. When they build the park, they choose similar wild vegetation for the landscaping
You can learn more in the article of Wikipedia.

the "wild" high line before they build the park.

It's a VERY popular (and recent) park. A lot of the ongoing development south of the upcoming Coach/South Tower is based upon the transformation of the area due to the park and rezoning.

A number of the photos of the Coach tower/Hudson Yards site are taken from the currently publicly open areas of the High Line. An example is this photo taken yesterday (9/11) posted by towerpower123. The photo is taken from the northmost end of the HL park, where it curves to the west into the currently unopened east-west section. The section seen there is being refurbished and will be integrated into the Coach/South Tower as the Coach Passage.

The High Line freight rail line itself was the "modern" rebuild of the grade level rail line that has existed in these areas since the mid1800s. The sections south of 34th st were elevated in the 1930s and all remaining portions will eventually be integrated into the park. The unopened section to the west of the Coach/South tower is hosting an art exhibition NOW. That area is open to the public only a few days per week and you need reservations:

http://art.thehighline.org/project/carolbove/

The photo below is at least a month old from thehighline.org site and is looking east along the not-yet-park HL east-west section that runs just north of 30th st.. Note the art, the LIRR's Hudson Yards, the many-find-ugly AP bldg, One Penn Plaza, the ESB and at least one Coach/South Tower crane. This photo is taken from ~one avenue west of the previous photo. I think this photo is originally by Timothy Schenck whose Flickr photostream has more HL photos over the years.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/timothyschenck/



The section north of 34th st is below current grade, was linked to Penn Station in 1991 and is now used for AMTRAK passenger rail service to upstate NY and Canada.

This 2011 Iwan Baan photo from the highlineblog shows how the two section connect. The photo is looking south, the South Tower site is at photo bottom. More HL history related to the photo and a plug for the calendar that features this photo is here:
http://www.thehighline.org/blog/2013...l-view-in-2011



The following is a plug for spending $$$ in NYC:
A good portion of NYC's economy is tourism and these areas (HL, Hudson Yards, Manhattan West and all the standard tourist stuff) are easy to get to by mass transit.
If you're an international traveler and flying into JFK you can catch the AirTrain at any terminal and take it to it's Jamaica terminus. From Jamaica you can get onto the LIRR going west and take it to NY Penn Station. NY's Pennsylvania Station (it's named after a defunct railroad) is UNDER the tall, thin, bluish tower (One Penn Plaza) that rises out of frame just right of center in the top photo. Note that you can also fly international into EWR (Newark Airport), which is actually closer to Manhattan, but the train connections are not as direct to this specific area. Just to confuse things, downtown Newark city ALSO has a Penn station, due to the same defunct railroad.

NY's Penn Station is basically all underground now, between 7th & 87th Avenues. The CLASSIC ~1910 above ground head house was destroyed in the '60s to build One Penn Plaza, Madison Square Garden, etc, above, but that's another story with many modern-day impacts. One of the modern-day impacts is that certain media run stories occasionally about tearing down the current Madison Square Garden and building a modern head house for NY's Penn Station.

A few avenues to the east of One Penn Plaza/Penn Station is the Empire State Building. The ESB has been giant-ape free for many decades. If you want to see more cranes, LOTS of steel being erected and concrete being poured you can take the #1 (7th Ave IRT) SUBWAY line at the east end of Penn station down south to the World Trade Center site. That site still has structures under construction, but the construction barriers are being moved inwards as more & more of the structures are being opened to the public/tenants. 4 WTC should open in November. The #1 subway stop that is directly under the rebuilt WTC (Courtlandt St, destroyed 9/11/01) will reopen I-don't-know-when, maybe when 4 WTC opens. The NEW structures are now guarded by sturdy bollards to prevent truck bombers from driving INTO the structures...

From today, core continues to rise, now above the rest of the high line. Steel is coming in, and lots of progress being made.

You're welcome.

As a matter of fact, this building will be constructed literally over this last section of the High Line Park, as you can see in the pictures, forming a passageway, as it does the Standard Hotel (shown in the previous pictures)

It's going to be incorporated beautifully with the bottom of the the tower as seen in the official renders below. Coach paid the High Line to name the part that passes underneath "Coach Passage," because of a rule in their lease that prevents them from naming the building itself.





Aside from the E tower, this is probably my favorite element of the whole HY site.

Great shots!

Yeah, when I walked the High Line, I found Chelsea a fascinating neighborhood. All the wacky futuristic designs mixed in with the historical stuff. It was something!

Do I see the core rising there? Or is that just some temporary warehouse? Is it time for me to start making a diagram for this building?
