I never thought of it that way. I think it's because 35 and 55 have such a "matching" design that they just "belong" together, so the thought of someone considering them separate never crossed my mind.

That's true. I really like how their (angled) setbacks are aligned to form an integrated piece, yet they are radically different in cladding material and volume. Both are very far removed from a bland blue glass box.

Those "dents" in this tower's (35) base are going to look jaw-dropping in real, mark my words. The 55 HY window frames are stunning with their retro charm, like someone would imagine flatscreen TVs in the 80s. The bar is set high in the complex, 50 HY needs a top-notch design to not disappoint.

that is an old pic. East yard is completely covered and there is even some covering on the west side of 11th ave.

Most evidence seems to indicate so

I'm sorry, but I really don't like that plaza... Too much concrete, I honestly like more green or at least have a fountain right in the middle.

Fantastic find scalziand. Truly amazing how far this site has come, and with little to no disruption to the rail yard underneath.

Edit: awesome to see 55HY overtake the ventilation structure!

Now all the original Hudson Yards towers are finance and on the rise.

Developers nab $1.2 billion loan for latest Hudson Yards tower
http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...llion-loan-for



Quote:
Developers Related Cos. and Oxford Properties Group secured a $1.2 billion loan to finance the construction of a 1,000-foot-tall mixed-use tower at Hudson Yards on the far West Side of Manhattan.

Related also raised an undisclosed equity investment from an unidentified entity for the $2 billion, 1.1 million-square-foot skyscraper at 35 Hudson Yards, on the corner of West 33rd Street and 11th Avenue. Children's Investment Fund is providing the debt.

"This capitalization further underscores the appeal of Hudson Yards with both global capital and global companies," said Stephen Ross, Related's chairman and founder, in a statement.

Children's Investment Fund has financed several luxury housing developments across the city, including 30 Park Place and 520 Park Ave.

The London-based hedge fund lender is familiar with the $20 billion Hudson Yards project—it also backed Related and Oxford's 15 Hudson Yards with a $1.3 billion loan last year. Fifteen Hudson Yards, with 285 condos, and 35 Hudson Yards are the first two residential buildings of several that Related and Oxford eventually plan to raise as part of the far West Side development. Presales for both will begin later this year.

The upper half of 35 Hudson Yards, which was designed by architect David Childs of the firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, will house 137 condos. The space below the residences will be largely occupied by the high-end fitness chain Equinox Fitness, which Related owns. The gym is opening a 200-room luxury hotel, a 60,000-square-foot gym and spa, and its new global corporate headquarters at the tower. Fitness chain SoulCycle is also slated to take a portion of the retail space at 35 Hudson Yards, which is scheduled to open in 2019.

The tower, which began rising earlier this year, is the fifth building underway at Hudson Yards. In May, Related and Oxford completed 10 Hudson Yards, a 1.7 million-square-foot office tower anchored by the luxury handbag maker Coach. Right next door, the developers are erecting a 1 million-square-foot mall anchored by a Neiman Marcus department store and a 2.6 million-square-foot tower at 30 Hudson Yards that will serve as the headquarters for Time Warner. Late last year, Related and Oxford secured $5 billion of debt to fund construction of the mall and 30 Hudson Yards.

Additionally, Related has partnered with Japanese development firm Mitsui Fudosan to build 55 Hudson Yards, a 1.3 million-square-foot office tower that is under construction.

Construction in this area is going nuts. It is awesome to see all the cranes and progress. I have phone pictures I'll try to figure out how to post at various points over the past 5-10 years from my runs along the hudson and then the high line that show just how much this area has changed in a relatively short time frame. This one is one of my favorite HY towers going up ... 30HY leads the way for the sheer domination of the NYC skyline it will have when walking the hudson on the jersey side.
