As far as I can tell, there are only three towers "under construction", which includes the foundation caisson work for 15 Hy & 30 HY. 35 HY has not started yet.

I assume that is because the LIRR can NOT shut down more storage tracks in the West Side Storage Yard. I also assume the LIRR will be able to temporarily shut down the northern storage tracks that underlie the 35 HY site when the caisson work is done & overbuild steel is up for the now-shutdown southern tracks.

The project is picking up steam & the NYT is there to report. I consider the Culture Shed to be part of 15 HY, even though the lower stories are part of 10 HY from the DoB standpoint.

The 11.24.14 nyguy photo below is the latest photo I've seen of the 15 HY site. Photo is looking NE from the High Line @ the Rail Yards, the 15HY site is in the foreground. Compared to the earlier 11.16.14 ILNY photo (@ bottom) the rebar cages are gone, down in the caissons I assume & the caisson drill has moved to a different location.

Ground Breaking for the first Hudson Yards Residential has commenced!! We all knew that, but it's official.

Real estate giant the Related Companies breaks ground on first residential tower at Hudson Yards -
Related began construction on the west side mega project exactly two years ago

http://www.nydailynews.com/life-styl...icle-1.2032195

Quote:
Real estate giant the Related Companies is getting started on the first of its skyline-altering residential towers at Hudson Yards, even as rumblings about a potential glut in the high-end condo market reach fever pitch.

The company has broken ground on a slimline 70-story skyscraper at 15 Hudson Yards, the Daily News has learned.

It will be the first of several residential towers at the $20 billion megaproject, which will comprise 16 skyscrapers at the site of the West Side rail yard in the West 30s. Construction on the new urban metropolis began two years ago, today.

Related's is certainly not the first residential tower to go up in the neighborhood around Hudson Yards. A slew of developers has already ridden on the coat tails of the company's efforts, bringing thousands of new condo units to the once industrial neighborhood.

But Related vice president Michael Samuelian says the company’s tower is going to be bigger — and better — that those of its competitors.

"If you go back 100 years, no one ever imagined that Park Ave. would be what it is today," he said. "This is the next Park Ave."

The new cylindrical-shaped 960,000-square-foot building, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group, will stand 910 feet tall and have approximately 385 homes, some rental and some condo. It will be directly adjacent to the High Line and connect to the Culture Shed, the new performance venue slated to host New York City's Fashion Week.

The property is slated for completion in 2018.

Related is also firing on all cylinders on its new office towers two years in, despite mixed views on the future of office leasing in Manhattan.

Experts have cautioned that, with more than 14 million square feet of office space slated to hit the Manhattan market before 2020, and flagging demand from tenants, landlords could have a lot of empty space on their hands.

"There's no office space glut in New York City," Samuelian said, definitively. "In fact, the supply of office space in New York is actually shrinking as lots of office buildings get converted to condominiums."

Stil, Related appears to be taking a more cautious approach to development than some of its peers, such as World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein. It’s waiting until tenants have committed to moving into its towers before it starts building them.

"Our first building was 85% committed before we put a shovel in the ground,” Samuelian said. “We're not of the mindset of 'If we build it, they will come.' We're building it when they're already there."

Hudson Yards’ first office tower, 10 Hudson Yards, has reached a third of its final height and is expected to top out next summer, a spokesperson for Related said. It will ultimately be 52 stories tall.

The building is co-owned by fashion retailer Coach, which plans to move its offices to the tower once it’s completed. A portion of the retail space will be home to Neiman Marcus’ first New York City department store.

The entire Hudson Yards project is expected to be completed by 2024.

Is this tower going to have a basement? Just wondering if we should expect to see excavation.

I'd have thought the basement would just sit above the ground, below the platform? With the rest of the building above that?

It has a cellar with a basement above the cellar, according to the DoB ZD1 filing posted earlier "Tower D - 553 W 30th Street, JOB # 121184208.

My interpretation of my overmagnified copy of the ZD1 diagram is that the cellar is at the same level as the lowest level of the adjacent and already built Culture Shed base.
So minimal excavation.

I assume we'll see other media coverage of the 15 HY "groundbreaking". This event also produced this NY Daily News photo from 10 HY looking north. South side of the overbuild platform/base of the retail podium is looking good, but it looks like they just have that lone beam across the northernmost tracks...

New HYNY FB photo, 15HY "grounbreaking" mentioned

The HYNY FB posted 4 photos and a blurb today.

Quote:
Together they have excavated 70,000 cubic yards of soil, placed more than 7,500 tons of steel, poured 117,000 cubic yards of concrete, and put more than 200 caissons in the ground. Oh, and in their spare time, they've also started putting up the windows on 10 Hudson Yards and broke ground on our first residential tower, 15 Hudson Yards. Go team!
https://www.facebook.com/HudsonYards...87278434640094

The closest relevant photo is really of the overbuild platform, north adjacent to 15 HY. One of the 15 HY north column bases (w/ rebar sticking up) is at photo bottom, left. This portion of the overbuild platform will be over the tracks to LIRR Maintenance shop. T-P will have to rebuild the tracks & the shop...

Looking ~north, with the concrete decked overbuild platform in the photo above out-of-frame to the right

HYNY FB, 12/5/14

More progress, via hardcore shutterbug

This snip of a hardcore shutterbug photo shows the 15 HY caisson drill drilling inside of a caisson & more corrugated steel on top of the overbuild platform:

apparently they have only been released to drill and the actual foundation itself is not yet released.

Also hearing that there is a portion of the site that is MTA and that part has not yet been released for drilling.

long way to go here as they were supposed to start in June

15 HY looks skinnier and noticeably taller than the ~900 ft 10 HY in this recent showcase. The again, the model also appears to be leaning

I see the Equinox has its rectangular to cylindrical look again... don't you dare change it again this time, Related! I think the corset really made for something distinctive but the tubing remains and is more focused on...the tower still looks really good but it would have been so cool with the twists of the corset. Again I hope they stop with the alterations and go no further, though if it's a little taller that's great!

Piling is underway, slowly with one machine.

Could the design get any worse? It fails to ignite any passion, just one more sour 'grace note' atop a 1 WTC base. In fact it looks like David Childs is the architect...
