It's nice enough but a bit disappointing. Too much open concrete, and the outdoor tables and chairs are unnecessary. The fountains seem nice, though. Public space is definitely needed on the west side so can't complain too much.

The tables and chairs are necessary for a busy park, especially for the cafe. Others are for people to buy food elsewhere and eat it in the park. Their presence adds to the natural surveillance concept of "Eyes on the Street."

From Tuesday,





The park/boulevard will close at 11 PM!!!

Related sure is hyping that sculpture, hope it doesn't disappoint.

Stephen M. Ross Discusses His vision for Hudson Yards
http://wwd.com/retail-news/retail-fe...-cos-10387536/

Quote:
The centerpiece of the project will be a monumental sculpture by Thomas Heatherwick that anchors the outdoor public space. “It will be to New York what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris,” claims Ross. “We are keeping it under wraps. We will introduce it in July. I don’t think anybody in the past 50 years or more has spent $150 million privately to develop a public art piece that will really be the icon to the city. The last time something like this happened, we got the Statue of Liberty from France. I realize that’s a bold statement. But everybody we have shown it to has agreed.”
...
“The key is going to be this sculptural piece,” he adds. “The beauty of the Eiffel Tower is that it is participatory. You ride up it. This is going to be participatory as well. It’s not as tall. It will be more civic. It can contain more people. It will be symbolic of community, of people enjoying a place. It will allow the other buildings to rally together, creating an ensemble of buildings.

Hey is there actually any recent info on that "sports bridge" that used to be in Vertical Gotham's plan? Is it (still) a real thing?

When will the Vessel get built and completed?


I found this description about the diversity of facades at Hudson Yards to be very interesting:

"Question: Will they also build a sand-/limestone facade there at HY?"

Add to that the black metal paneling of 55 HY, 10 HY's stone columns, the brick residential mid-rises to the south, Heatherwick's brassy Vessel sculpture, more as-yet-unnanounced buildings and sculptures in the Western Yards, and whatever Frank Gehry comes up with for his curvy twins, there will be no shortage of interesting materials at play.

Edit: It's actually not 100% clear which of the Western Yards buildings Frank Gehry is going to be doing. It is possible he's actually doing the office tower, and Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica will do the curvy twins, or vice versa. Looking forward to more info on that.

It's already being fabricated in Italy. I saw a picture of a completed section somewhere. It was huge. The whole thing is supposed to be finished by August 2018.

The whole thing is quite beautiful, such pleasant landscape architecture, I love the pastel green tables and chairs.

But time will tell. As is, it's a good start in terms of growing the downtown Manhattan skyline northward (and I expect it will look the most awesome when viewed with TriBeCa and FiDi in the background.)

Oh no, just NO, please no Faux Deco over here, please no bland precast. It will certainly ruin the new heart of New York.

Yeah, for sure it'll ruin it, when facing loads and loads of repetetive bland glass facades.

RAMSA provides high quality architecture and there's enough reasons the studio is contracted a lot, even though I like some other classical architecture studios better, like Peter Pennoyer and David M. Schwarz.

People may think Stern's style of architecture automatically discredits him, but his record speaks for itself: multiple high-profile projects currently being built in New York City, major projects for some of the most important educational institutions in America, major international projects, including neighborhood-scale developments in China, etc.

And Stern "ruining" the heart of New York? Please. He's an architect of the revival of Times Square, the architect of the building that ushered in this incredible luxury development boom, and the architect that's written the definitive survey of New York City architecture. Architects like Stern fiercely defend the heart of New York against bland and outre faddish architecture.

Which is why international clients hire him, to import some of that essence and success of the New York style.
