yea that makes sense. thanks!

IIRC somebody had made a comment that there was, or would be soon, RFQs for the 55 HY structural steel out for bid.

Regarding the 55 HY RFP/RFQ/whatever it might be a product of my feeble brain. If it's not memory failure, you would find it in either this site or SSP.

Perhaps the Time Warner people won't mind having so much of their view to the north blocked if the building blocking them contains cool features, such as those below. Those huge floor plates create endless possibilities!

I'm sure the TW people would not mind as much. HY will be amazing area and a great place to be with lots of things going on.

It just occurred to me the views from 30 HY OD to the outside would be partially blocked by 50HY to for North facing views, but if you go to the higher levels of the OD you should have 360 pano views.

30HY observation deck starts at 1,080ft high, so my guess is that 50HY will be at the most 1,100ft tall.

I like the design here. Reminds me a lot of Georgia Pacific Tower:

Yeah, I agree, it is a bit too bulky for me as well.

The new design has got to go. Too bulky and really not at all a good fit. And what about the Girasole? Where will that go in all this?

It's a placeholder for a newly-acquired site. This tower won't rise for a long time, but a full-block retail space might rise soon. Related does not own the Girasole site, so it's not shown on these models.

I think this will end up a lot nicer than that tower, which is not bad in itself.

And I'm bored of super-thin towers. It's nice to see a real, thick, no-nonsense design every now and then.

I was looking at the exhibit again and noted that the McDs placeholder completely blocks the north view from the North Tower's observation deck, which is further reason to be believe that it will bear no semblance to the final design. Just as the North and South Towers were designed to ensure their respective views, the McDs Tower likely will do the same.

Yea that was my observation a few posts up. The outside deck would be blocked partially at an elevation of 1,080 if 50 HuYa will be that tall.

They do have the higher inside Observation Decks that would be able to give unobstructed 360 views.

When you look at the model from the North, the observation deck's north view I'd completely obscured. (I think that the higher rooms are only for very expensive corporate events -- not the general public).

In addition, the current placeholder for the McD tower obscures the northern views if the upper floors of the TY Tower. Related will seek premium rents for that space, so I assume that the views will not be blocked by another Related project.

I would not mind the setbacks on the western side and hope they maintain that, maybe if the do setbacks on the eastern side as well, so that it would taper and open up the Northern views from 30 Hudson OD. That way 50 Hudson maintains is height of 1,080- 1,100ft.

the facade looks nice. If 30 HY's observation platform is still at 1080', this tower should be ~1100'

agreed and I know I'm in the minority here but I like this tower as a complimentary piece with the other towers.

35, 50, and 55 Hudson Yards all appear to have the glass-stone combination facade. Maybe there's a theme developing here.

Looks like it is hiding. A shockingly fat rendition of the shockingly thin tower at 111 west 57th. Boo
