This is just the kind of Ambitious Developer we need for this Spire.

Chinese Developer Envisions a Future for Abandoned London Docks
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/19/bu...velopment.html

Quote:
Known for ambitious plans in China for business parks the size of cities, Xu Weiping says he cannot wait to start work on his first project abroad - turning an abandoned London dock into Europe’s main hub for Chinese companies.
Quote:
Mr. Xu last year agreed to invest $1.6 billion to turn London’s derelict Royal Albert Dock back into a vibrant global trading hub. But instead of ships he is betting on Chinese companies that are seeking a foothold in Europe.

jackedi07, they updated the article it is actually 30m wide at the bottom and 23m wide at the top! :O

Design Details Revealed for Hudson Spire
..
The much-anticipated plans for New York City’s Hudson Spire, located in the developing Hudson Yards district, were released by MJM + A Architects. The plans indicate that the building is to rise to an astounding 549 meters, which would merit the tower the distinction of “tallest building in North America” if completed as planned.

“When the senior executives of Massey Knakal, James Nelson and Bob Knakal, and Anthony Volpe of the Rosenthal Group first laid out for us the challenge of creating an 1,800 foot-high mixed-use tower for Hudson Yards, we were both thrilled and inspired. As architects, our job is to interpret the dreams of others. The creative geniuses of our design studio, led by my partner Keith Lucas, came up with a stunning vision of a vibrant glass structure that literally jumps from its base and soars to the stars,” said Michael J. Maculuso, Principal and Founder of MJM + A Architects. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that architects dream of.”

According to the plans, the Hudson Spire is to boast 110 stories, with floors one through five offering retail and dining, followed by 15 stories of office space, upon which three separate hotels will be stacked. The top 25 floors are reserved for luxury residential units, which will gaze upon supertall scenery that spans the city and harbor.

“Hudson Yard represents the last frontier in undeveloped Manhattan property,” says Macaluso, “and Hudson Spire will be right in the middle of this dynamic new neighborhood with all its cultural attractions, entertainment, and river views.”

The slim tower’s base is a mere 100 meters wide, and tapers to 75 meters near the top with a series of setbacks. Hudson Spire’s structural strategy battles high winds by utilizing reinforced concrete and steel framing, which is sheathed by high-strength glass.

“There’s not a lot of façade to work with,” said Keith M. Lucas, partner and project designer for MJM + A Architects, “so we wanted to make it visually interesting. We decided, rather than go with a typical singular surface, let’s do something different and more dynamic. Let’s vary the composition of the glass color and reflective property, with lots of intersecting angles that play off one another, so that sunsets and city views will look different on one face of the building than on the others.”

Pretty cool design. Is this really going to happen?

We will see what gets built here but idk if I'm convinced on a tallest in North America. All of the office space going up around it will saturate the market for a while.

The vastly improved transport links for the HY site make this more than a pipe dream.

Really, it's often infrastructure that drives new developments like this.

People will be looking at the railyards district and thinking 'is this going to be a major NYC hub in the next twenty, thirty years?'. Because HY could be a third cluster on its own alongside Midtown and Lower Manhattan.

Getting in now when there's space available at a fairly decent price could be a wise investment. But only if top developers expect it to follow best-case-scenario trends.

I mean, when the WTC site wraps up and the transport hub is finished, I'd imagine a lot of new skyscrapers will go Lower. That might siphon development from HY.

Your right about that...Hudson yards is becoming NYC's 3rd business district..except it is entirely new..which puts it at an advantage over the old commercial Bldg's of Midtown East. What a great investment to expand the 7 train to the Yards...now NYC has to come thru with a bold plan to expand Penn Station completely into the Farley Post Office.

They're improving Penn Station by moving Amtrak over one block to the James Farley Post Office. It'll be called Moynihan Station once it's done, which will be in about 100 years at this pace. There's also renewed interest in bringing Metro North access to Penn Station, though some consider that a pipe dream.

Not too fond of the design. Looks like something from 1997.

I hope they can make it 600m, that's just 51 more meters or 15 stories.

It's just as likely that there'll be an 1800-foot equestrian statue on this plot as the rendered "Hudson Spire" design will be built.
