In Construction> High Line Construction Reaches into Hudson Yards



Quote:
Hudson Yards broke ground late last year, but the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed tower that will one day be the headquarters of fashion-label Coach isn’t the only construction activity causing a buzz on the 26-acre site on Manhattan’s West Side. Wrapping around the south and west sides of the Hudson Yards site, construction crews are busy building out the final segment of the High Line, including sandblasting and refurbishing the steel viaduct, repainting the steel structure’s beams, girders, and columns with the High Line’s signature “Greenblack” color, and removing and storing existing railroad tracks. Landscape construction is expected to begin later this spring.

The Friends of the High Line recently stopped by the construction site with photographer Timothy Schenck to take these photos of work in progress.

February 6, 2013.

The recent groundbreaking of the Hudson Yards project will usher in five years of construction that will extend the High Line to West 34th Street, build platforms over the rail yards, construct massive commercial and residential high-rise towers and provide public spaces and a K-8 school for new residents.

Here's the timeline as it stands now:

May 2010: Oxford Properties Group partners with Related, signs contract with MTA for development right of 13 million square feet at Hudson Yards


Dec. 4, 2012: Break ground on Hudson yards

Jan. 14, 2013: Break ground on Manhattan West — building platform

The High Line is really getting some of the best new buildings in the city, in addition to the great buildings already there.

A former elevated railroad which runs along the lower west side of Manhattan, it is redesigned and is now being used as greenway to walk on.

Is the Hudson Yards going to build over all those subway lines and subway carts on the site? I have always wondered whether they would build over it.

Will they be underground or moved somewhere else?

A platform will be built over those subway lines for a public esplanade but the towers are to be sunk into bedrock.

Supertalls A-Go-Go

80 South Street's Tower of Gardens Might Arrive by 2016



Quote:
Where Santiago Calatrava's tower was once planned to stand at 80 South Street, a new team of architects has been at work on a replacement. Morali Architects is designing a 1,018-foot-tall skyscraper—yes, it has gotten taller since the last update—bisected by skygardens, and Anthony Morali, chief architect, sat down with New York YIMBY to discuss the project. The interview revealed a few fun facts. For example, the tower will be built by the same contractors that built New York by Gehry, but design will be "more in line with" Herzog & de Meuron's revived 56 Leonard.

The project—which was, in fact, partially inspired by 56 Leonard—is "close" to finding a hotel tenant, but Morali is also working on making the tower solely residential, with some commercial space on the ground floor. It all depends on the building's neighbor in the back, who may or may not be willing to sell.

A switch to wholly residential sounds more likely than one of the other ideas Morali floats in response to a question about Hurricane Sandy. "Who knows—maybe we'll have elevated walkways between our tower and 151 Maiden Lane next door. And then maybe more neighbors will join in. Creating a new plane opens a ton of opportunities. Why not have the High Line—or something like it—wrap all the way around Manhattan?" We're not holding our breath for a borough-wrapping High Line, but the rough completion date for 80 South Street is 2016,
