I think another massive tower is under design near this one. There was a small massing of it. It looked like it was well over 1,000 feet tall and had 3 or 4 setbacks. NY seems to be the king of speculative supertalls. Foster and Childs get around.

Would that be the Foster/Childs project at MSG that was just canned?

Sherwood Announces Hudson Yards Plans

Oct 9, 2007
Adam Perrotta, News Writer

Sherwood Equities has revealed development plans for two parcels of land within the much-talked-about Hudson Yards section of Manhattan.

The firm will build a multi-family property on one of the sites--on 10th Ave. between 35th and 36th Streets. The project will contain 200 rental apartments housed in a 35-story tower.

The other parcel, located on the west side of 10th Ave. between 34th and 35th Streets, will house either a 2,500-room hotel or a 2.5 million-square-foot office complex, complete with parking facilities.

The Hudson Yards, a train yard located on Manhattan's Far West Side, have been the object of much speculation recently, given the rapid expansion of development throughout the borough as the real estate market continues to hum along there. As one of the few remaining large tracts available for new projects, the area is seen as one of the most valuable and noteworthy sites in the city.

The area will no doubt further benefit from the upgrading of nearby Penn Station, the Farley Post Office and Madison Square Garden, as well as the extension of the number 7 subway line into the area. In 2005, the city rezoned the area, allowing for expanded commercial development.

"Hudson Yards is the hottest development area in New York City," noted Sherwood CEO Jeffrey Katz, in a release today. Katz's firm has owned each of the parcels for more than 15 years. "Even back then, we believed that the Hudson Yards had great potential," he said. "It's exciting to finally proceed with the development of these properties, knowing that whatever paths we take, we can expect textbook cases of high return on investment."

Katz said that both the hotel and the office options for the 34th St. site had distinct advantages. He noted that the hotel would benefit from the large number of rooms it could contain, as well as its proximity to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. An office, meanwhile, could take advantage of from the overall development of the area and the increasing number of companies that would likely want to establish a footprint in the area.

Indeed, just yesterday, Conde Nast Publications announced its intention to move at least a portion of its offices to the Hudson Yards sometime in the future.

Sherwood currently owns several Manhattan properties, including 1 and 2 Times Square, 1600 Broadway, The Coronado and The Saratoga.

This building should be in the SUPERTALL THREAD people. It may be 400 meters tall and certainly is over 300 meters.

^ I agree. And if it isn't a supertall, it's only a few feet away from being one.


Edit: Yes, after seeing the rendering of that reisdential tower that's over 1,000 feet tall in the same place and comparing it to this, this almost has to be a supertall.

I'm sure that it's safe to move this thread to the supertall section.


Over 305m or 1,000 feet tall (no exact height yet):
[IMG]http://i19.************/4md2irm.jpg[/IMG]

Unknown height:


I counted over 65 floors in both towers. They both have 65 to about 70 floors depending on which renderings you look at.

Since we know what the residential tower is over 1,000 feet tall and that residential towers have floors that are spaced together closer than office towers, it's safe to assume that the Sherwood Tower is over 1,000 feet tall too because it's all office.

Don't forget that this is a 2.5 million square foot office skyscraper in NY. This is almost certainly a supertall. In fact, I'd bet money that it is. If you took the Freedom Tower and and removed all of the non-office floors, the base, and the spire, it would still be over 1,000 feet tall.

not bad, but looks a little dull and uncreative, and also will block the Empire State Building from the west. Not bad tho

Development Thrives in the Hudson Rail Yards

Sherwood Equities preliminary design for a parcel at 34th St. and 10th Ave.

Quote:
April 03, 2012

...But not every developer is ready to begin building. Sherwood Equities, for example, recently bought its third parcel in the neighborhood, but is sitting tight for now.

“I think the economy needs to get a bit more traction before we start building on the sites,” said Jeffrey Katz, the chief executive of Sherwood Equities, “maybe another year or so, but it is hard to predict an exact time frame.”

Sherwood paid $43.5 million for 360 10th Avenue, a vacant lot at the third section of the High Line that can be developed into nearly 400,000 square feet of commercial and 200,000 square feet of residential space. It also owns a superblock on the west side of 10th Avenue between 34th and 35th Street that can be developed into 2.5 million square feet of commercial space; and a parcel on the east side of 10th Avenue between 35th and 36th street that can be converted into a 200-unit apartment building, Mr. Katz said.

Still, while it may be premature to begin construction, Mr. Katz said competition for good sites in the area was keen, with any parcel coming up for sale attracting a number of bidders. He said he went into contract and closed on 360 10th in fewer than 10 days. And according to Massey Knakal, which represented the seller on the deal, the sale was the largest development site sold last year in New York City.

At 2.5 million sq. ft. buildable it will most likely be a supertall.
