When complete, Hudson Yards will contribute $18.9 billion to the city—more than Iceland's GDP
The developer behind the massive project Related Cos. commissioned a study to examine its economic impact on New York



By Joe Anuta '
May 2, 2016


Quote:
The company behind the $20 billion Hudson Yards development on Manhattan's West Side expects economic activity there to eventually rival the gross domestic product of Iceland, according to an analysis released Monday.

Related Cos. is aiming to finish the project between West 30th and West 34th streets—which includes 10.4 million square feet of office space, eight residential buildings, a cultural center and retail—by 2025. A study commissioned by the developer indicated that total economic output of the companies projected to occupy Hudson Yards will contribute $18.9 billion to the city's gross domestic product. Iceland's gross domestic product is $15.3 billion.

"Ten years ago, New York City placed a very large bet on the development of Hudson Yards," the study said. "Three years into a 14-year construction program ... the bet is beginning to pay off."

The economic analysis was conducted by Manhattan consulting firm Appleseed, and was broken out into three sections including a variety of stats and predictions.

During the 14-year build-out period, for example, the report estimated that 2,767 construction jobs would be created annually. Once the complex is fully operational, Hudson Yards is expected to be home to 56,000 full-time employees earning an annual total of $9.8 billion, or an average of more than $175,000 per worker. The report also detailed the money that will go to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which owns the rail yards underneath a platform on which most of Hudson Yards will be built.

During the construction period, Related will fork over a total of $1.8 billion in lease payments to the MTA. Once the project is complete, those payments will be $89 million annually. The developer will also give the authority payments in lieu of taxes totaling $68 million each year that the city will use to pay down its portion of the debt service for the No. 7 train extension, which opened late last year but has since encountered water leaks.

Many projections in the report are contingent on a host of economic indicators in the city, including demand for Class A office space. Out of the 10.4 million square feet Related will have to lease up, so far it has locked in commitments from tenants for 4 million square feet.


The report states the outdoor portion of the observation deck will be above 1,100 ft.

Does the new citywide ferry service mean that the Staten Island ferry will no longer be free of charge or is this service exempt?

News about the HY Heatherwick Sculpture and the potential 7 train extension to 10th Avenue.

$200M Hudson Yards Sculpture Will Be NYC's Eiffel Tower, Developer Says
https://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/201...developer-says

Quote:
MANHATTAN — A $200 million sculpture coming to a plaza in the Hudson Yards could become the Big Apple's answer to the Eiffel Tower, a developer said on Monday.

Speaking at a Crain’s real estate conference, Related Companies Chairman Stephen Ross said he believes the yet-to-be-revealed sculpture designed by British artist Thomas Heatherwick will “become to New York what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris,” Crain’s New York reported.

Back in 2013, Ross — whose firm, along with Oxford Properties Group, is developing part of the Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s West Side — estimated the sculpture would cost about $75 million.

He added that the sculpture’s design will “hopefully” remain under wraps until September or later, Politico New York reported.

The plaza where it will reside will be “bigger than Trafalgar Square” in London, Ross said.

The MTA could also be tasked with bringing back formerly discarded plans for a 7 train stop at West 41st Street and 10th Avenue, if Sen. Chuck Schumer and former deputy mayor of economic development Dan Doctoroff have a say.

During the Crain’s conference, the two voiced their support for a station at the site, with Schumer calling for the estimated $30 billion in revenue from the 7 train’s Hudson Yards station to go toward the West 41st Street stop, The Real Deal reported.

An MTA study is currently examining where the station could be built and the amount of space it would occupy.

LOLwhut? NYC has its main landmark, its "Eiffel Tower" already.

It's called Empire State Building.

You need to protect its sightlines and immediate area!
Especially the upper half of the tower needs to stay recognizable from the main vistas.

New York won't be New York anymore when the ESB gets hidden.
There are some unique things in the world that shouldn't change at all, ever. Because they're perfect the way they are.

It's advertising, they're trying to sell. I'd go as far as to say that not only will it not be the icon of NYC (obviously), but not even the icon of Hudson Yards (30 HY will be).

More like the $200M Hudson Yards sculpture will be New York's London Orbit.

Actually thought of that, too, because if I recall correctly it was advertised the same way.

No way. Emporis is terrible. Skyscrapercenter just has a bad habit of adding a year to construction times to account for slow work (this often winds up being the case).

And no one will, from just about every angle, unless they are right there on the square.

What's so terrible about it? It's got the largest database of them all and is largely up to date.
