Isn't the Girasole "3 Hudson Boulevard?" One Hudson was the name Extell had for 55 HY.

It's more like 1100+ compared to the big one, unless the renderings are a little off.

They would probably take about 50% of this tower?

I think it would be fun entering this dense mini city, via the high line and exploring within in this maze of these towering concrete and glass vertical forest. Plus you will have these great public spaces within to explore such as Hudson Yards Plaza, phase 2 HY parks, MW plaza & the Hudson Boulevard. For me busy with the layout is good with this project = more fun factor. You may not feel like your in NYC within the Yards. It would be a different city feel within NYC imo.
I think it is wrong to compare these 2 mega developments. we compare apples with oranges.

WTC complex has enormous amount of constrains - from the understanding that this a memorial, not just office towers, to a certain amount of office space that the place have to build, thus the size and architecture of the towers.

given all this, plus an underground cemetery, mall, numerous subway lanes and etc - WTC is a much more complex and difficult to built. besides it is owned by different entities which are not in agreement most of the time. for me it is a quagmire so once they will finish there, it will be a monument to human perseverance.

HY - have non of this. no relatives of the dead, no memorial, no certain way how the towers should look like and have certain size, no government involvement and etc. while it is technically challenging, it is much more straightforward process with way less headache. So once they will finish it including a new Penn station on the place of MSG as well as a new MSG somewhere, then we will see a very interesting result. but once again it is much more straightforward.

Plus HY got a cheap price kick start thanks to the promise of residential money. It is also in the middle of nowhere compared to WTC.

Oh nice, hope it's beautiful!

I feel like 35 Hudson yards needs a height update though because it definitely looks taller in the renderings.

"Culture Shed" is a horrible name, but it looks great.

IIRC, 15 Hudson yards is aka the "Culture Tower", adjacent to the "Culture Shed"

I note that the 2nd rendering (repeated below), right above the "15 Hudson Yards looks really futuristic" comment, does not even show 50 HY, the nominal subject of this thread:

15 looks like a woman doing a hand-stand in some of those renders.

Like others, I like the buildings individually. But what causes me problems with the whole ensemble is that some of the buildings appear to be, or actually are, off-vertical. It kind of reminds me of crooked teeth pointing off in different directions.
