Norman Foster does really beautiful work with detailing so this one will be a masterpiece. Just look at the Hearst Tower and add 10 years of technological precision to that. He does really well with glass box towers. I can't wait to see some mockups of those popout windows.

Foster's design was released a few days ago. BlackRock is anchoring it.

First post, sorry I cant post a link or renders... can somebody do that for me?

This one I guess.

Quote:
BlackRock, the giant financial company that manages $5 trillion in assets, reached an agreement on Wednesday to move from a prestigious Park Avenue address to a neighborhood on the Far West Side of Manhattan that was once home to warehouses, rail yards, tenements, dockworkers and teamsters.
The 20-year deal was completed by Related Companies, developer of the Hudson Yards project; BlackRock; and state officials, all three parties said. They declined to say how much it was worth in total. But in return for keeping 2,672 jobs in Manhattan and pledging to create another 700, BlackRock obtained special tax credits from the state worth up to $25 million.
The planned move is only the latest sign that the center of gravity for the city’s corporate elite is shifting westward from Midtown to a new generation of sleek, ever-taller office towers.
BlackRock’s relocation to Hudson Yards also highlights how quickly this change is taking place, compared with other transformative developments: Battery Park City in Lower Manhattan was 40 years in the making, while the redevelopment of Times Square took 30 years. Rebuilding the area around the World Trade Center has been going on for 15 years — and counting.
It has been almost nine years since the Metropolitan Transportation Authority selected Related to develop Hudson Yards, a mix of office towers, residential buildings, cultural institutions, parks and a five-story mall on platforms over the rail yards bound by 10th and 12th Avenues, between 30th and 33rd Streets.

From the renders and Foster history, it does seem like it might use a different tint of glass than the ubiquitous blue curtainwalls going up everywhere (including right next door at 10 and 30 HY, 1, 2, 3 and 5 MW). That's a win.

What a boring design, with Foster i had expected the use of triangles, not a box of which this city has enough already. Hopefully the remaining plots will be gifted with better and more futuristic designs.

I wish they would include the MW towers. Even vague massing depictions would be nice. I understand why they leave them out. But it would be a more accurate representation of how the area will look like.

Yeah, my initial reaction was to come to this tower's defense, as I love a well-done box, and thought there was already a lot of visual clutter in the Yards... but the longer we've sat with it, the less I like this design. A Hearst-style diagrid would have suited the site well, as a visual bridge between the diagonals of 10 and 30 HY, and the boxes of 55 HY and 3 Hudson Blvd.

Moreover, there's just something a little off about the proportion of the upper and lower boxes. The setback slices right through the middle of the tower in a less-than-appealing way. I'd prefer it if the setback was several stories lower, or if there were a couple more of them (really, like the "staircase" model we'd seen for the past couple years).

Yeah, I don't see what the harm would be in adding even a transparent massing model, just to add to the "holy crap, the Far West is truly going nuts" of it all.

Fortunately, I think Thomas Koloski is undertaking this very project on his YIMBY rendering thread, so we ought to see something from him soon.

This might not be the final design. Every HY tower has undergone significant transformations from the time it was first revealed until the time it was built.

Interesting how these huge towers appear relativly small on the far west side, while the would totally stick out in the mass that is midtown.

With the Spiral and 3HB in there, Foster's design doesn't look too bad. Its giant boxes look ok in the context.

I agree, it fits in much more when seen in the context of the other boxy designs added to the rendering.

Has Coach left their old building next to the McDonald's yet? The old brownstones have been emptied and boarded up, but last I was there, there were still people going in and out of the old Coach HQ.

There were some construction workers going in and out of the old Coach building so they might be working on interior demolition.
