Vertical_Gotham you know I just realized something about the above map. The ugly yellow DHL building is between 39 and 38 str.
you moved it one street up on the map. you should change the numbers of the streets.

The building is between 38th and 39th on the map.

Btw, here's an updated of the boulevard of the map including Phase 1 of HY.

That church was actually in the wrong location on my map and I made the correction as I completely forgot to include:

Extell's, 551 Tenth Ave.

Hmm OK. I was getting all confused - since I am looking at satellite and see a different picture.

475 10th avenue is too long. it is a bit longer then 483, but basically the old building along the 36 street is way longer. Very good job though!

That is actually a good idea to use the Google maps. I'll make the corrections thanks.

Google already has the outline for Hudson Blvd on the map if you zoom in close enough.

That's a great map of all the projects and plots in the Hudson Yards area. Thanks for working on it and posting it.

The west side is going to go absolutely hog-wild from 30th Street to 42nd Street. What a change from the seedy and underdeveloped state of far west side up until the High Line was built and Related stepped on the gas.

Very cool, but there's no way the Hudson Spire would be that big, even if it were built to the full 1800 ft.

yeah probably right... its tough to estimate. I guessed what an extra 550' would be on top of ESB for comparison. Which is tough with no idea how far down the base is.

Has Tishman Speyer given any indication that they intend to build one tower on the entire plot?

Why wouldn't they? The footprint of the entire site would not be big enough to create a mini Hudson yards. They spent over $200 m for each lots for the purpose to build a tower of epic proportions with 2.85 msf. Just shy of 1 WTC total sq footage of development of 3msf.

Nice graphic!

Shouldn't we be calling this the Hudson Speyer?

True, and 1WTC is a very broad building despite the fact that it tapers on the sides.

However if they chose to build this building really fat it may not end up over 400m, we'll see what they do.

Ugh, if it's another 50 HY It would be a shame. What an opportunity to do something extraordinary for the city. I believe that if it reaches 500m most here will be happy enough. Hopefully the building will taper rather than be fat all the way up. However, i guess the developers will be tempted to maximize profits and build a shorter tower.

That isn't hard.
Not to get into the spire/antennae debate, but from a distance, 1WTC looks like its roof height. The spire is barely visible, except when lit.
Hopefully this project will be at least 200 ft. taller to the roof.

I think part of it's the picture, in person the spire is much more visible from anywhere.

It might not be "hard" but anything in the same height caliber or taller than 1WTC to the roof is still huge. Still only a handful of buildings (mostly in China) go over 400 meters to the top floor.

This has the same likelihood of rising as a 90 year old mans downtown entertainment district
