2 more levels and the vessel is topped out. Also, it will be such a feat to relax in this square when everything is said and done. This complex is a good example how you do a new CBD and interconnect it properly with the rest of the city fabric to make it a part of it and not just an isolated jungle of towers. I guess that this and the Manhattan West will result in a more or less 24 hour neighborhood?!

Its at 11 levels of 15 total ...

And the whole area from Penn Station/MSG to the river will be a new 24 hour neighborhood pretty much ...

Depends on how you define level, maybe germantower sees every full hexagon as a level, and the levels in between as half-levels. There was a bit of disagreement back in the day whether Zaha's High Line spaceship has 11 levels or 22, as well.

All the promotional materials for Vessel say it has 15 levels.

This is from when there were only 9 levels but you should get the idea:


All the literature calls for 15 levels so that's the only way to get that many without raising the crane (which they can't because they didn't add a climbing frame to it.)

Just south of Hudson Park and under the High Line will be more public space right next to One Hudson Yards:

They should take that area south of the 34th Street High Line Entrance where all the tractor-trailers are parked now and turn that into the High Line's second lawn ...

The first picture that sort of shows the magnitude of the Vessel.

I have a feeling this thing is going to be called "the bee hive" rather than the vessel by the locals.
