Reatil complex opne in late '17

There were a flurry of articles today due to the 1st "birthday of the South Tower/10 Hudson Yards.

No mention of the Culture Tower in this quote from today, but implies that the entire overbuild platform will be finished & open by late '18:

Quote:
"When we start the deck we are effectively building the foundations for the retail complex and the north tower, the retail complex will open in late '17, the north tower will open in late '18, and with that all the public space," Cross said.
The quote is TWC's NY1 artcile, which also has a video:
http://www.ny1.com/content/news/1997...well-under-way

Today's article from chelseanow.com provides this photo of the current status of the Cutlure Tower site. I think the tower itself will be where the soil/soil ramp/yellow excavator/concrete truck are:

Work on the Hudson Yards site is taking place while the final section of the High Line, seen here at back left, is also undergoing construction. - See more at: http://chelseanow.com/2013/12/tall-c....ErFkcbJk.dpuf

Zoning diagram perspective on current construction

Today I looked at the ZD1 zoning diagram filed w/ NYC 13 months ago for the South Tower.

I think it provides a perspective for the delineation between the "dirt pit" and all the concrete/rebar structure building in the cheseanow.com photo above.
I think the dirt pit/Concrete-rebar line is defined by the Culture shed platform/plaza/whatever to the right of the text "ELEVENTH AVE. SIDEWALK LINE 5' FROM etc." in the diagram below. I snipped from the South Tower diagram so that the Culture Tower relevant stuff would be easily visible, but kept the west side of the South Tower in the snip (bottom of right side) as a reference

15 Hudson Yards
http:/http://www.hudsonyardsnewyork....dential-towers

I don't mean to add any confusion but was this page updated???

I don't ever recall 15 HY listed as 915ft with 72 Floors as this is what is listed now on the page.

NOTE: All figures for all other projects has remained the same so far.

Am i going crazy?? So what is it? If this is the figures prior to all the recent updates, then did it get a haircut or is this a recent development? Like i said this tower info has changed if this is a recent update. Dunno.


Below was the map they gave me at the exhibit the other day.

^ I don't know what happened to the thread title, but on the last page we discussed that the 915ft figure is the right one. Official site, CTBUH and the architects confirm it.

Continued progress on the tunnel box excavation

The are progressing on the SOE for the tunnel box excavation & the actual excavation itself. This photo is looking east from the 11th Ave viaduct. They have drilled a lot of the rock bolt holes/cables in the north secant pile wall visible in the photo, but haven't tensioned the rock bolt cables yet. They are using the un-excavated soil in the ~middle of the tunnel box excavation as a ramp to get down to the east and west ends, where they are digging down and supporting the walls as they go.

The northern foundations for the Culture Tower will go someplace in the bottom right of the photo. They have also cleaned out most of their stuff in the tunnel box construction controlled area that is off screen to the right.

Maybe the non-tunnel box T-P workers will start Culture Tower foundations in that area next year...

But it had the E Tower at 950 ft when it was raised to 1,000 recently. I'm just confused right now!

Further progress on tunnel box/foundations

AFAIK, the southwest end of the tunnel box excavation will provide part of the northern foundations for 15 Hudson yards.

ILNY on SSP has posted photos today that provide recent views of this area. This photo shows a CAT excavator with rock hammer attachment down in the west end of the Amtrak gateway tunnel box excavation, so I assume they are getting down to the rock level at the west end. I also assume they have tensioned the tie backs of the secant piles in this same are.
The 15 HY foundations would go in along the bottom of the photo. The scaffolding and forms in the middle right are for the Culture Shed.

Photo is looking NE from the 11th Ave viaduct

Note for reference that Oxford/Related is displaying the HY timeline (below) at their exhibit at the TWC now.
NY Construction http://newyork.construction.com/new_...c-projects.asp also reports this:
Quote:
By this time next year, the entire Eastern Rail Yards portion of the site will be under construction, including four towers, a retail podium and a public plaza, says a spokeswoman at Related Cos., which is co-developing the site with Oxford Properties.
IMHO they will NOT have the 15 HY stump shown built at the end 2014:

I agree that isn't likely. Just a year time is too less.

Ghostface79 just discovered at the HYNY website Related updated the figures for their residentials.

http://www.hudsonyardsnewyork.com/li...dential-towers

15 Hudson Yards got a bump as well from 870 to 910ft!

Quote:
15 Hudson Yards

The first residential building at Hudson Yards will be 15 Hudson Yards. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and David Rockwell in collaboration with Ismael Leyva Architects, 15 Hudson Yards will be adjacent to the High Line and connected to Culture Shed, New York City’s new avant-garde cultural facility. With its iconic tapered design, unobstructed views of the city and Hudson River and abundant amenities, 15 Hudson Yards will be the ideal place for New York’s creative visionaries to live.

•910,000 square foot luxury residential tower
•910 feet tall
•70 stories
•68 rental apartments
•258 for sale residences
•Amazing residents only in-builidng amenities, including a fitness center by Equinox Fitness Club
•24/7 concierge attended lobby
It's official.

15 HuYA @ 910 ft
35 HuYa @ 1,000 ft

Here's hoping 30 HuYa stays at 1,337 ft

Glad this got a height increase as it would've been unnoticed on the skyline with the other taller buildings going up!

It wasn't going to go unnoticed since it is in the front of the complex on the west side. It would of been highly visible from the Jersey side.

Not for long. That's the only Phase I of the Hudson Yards project. Phase II, which should start construction around 2017/2018, will fill in the western railyards and obscure this building from NJ.

Yea and more importantly, the tower will look sleeker and elongated, rather than a bit on the heavy side.
