Would the subway line be considered prep work?

That subway line project is stunning. Is there a thread for it in this forum?

This may be the most stunning design that is still approved. I hope the Subway station attracts a lot of traffic so we see this part of town thrive enough to get this built.

I thought this was dead well it's good it will actually get built even though it's not for a while. But I like those pics of the subway extension .

Situated in the heart of the dynamic Hudson Yards District, directly across from the new Javits Convention Center 3 Hudson Boulevard, located at 34th Street and 11th Avenue will be a gateway for Manhattan's new West Side and an icon of green architecture for the 21st Century. This solar powergenerating tower will set a new standard for mixed use development by uniting premium corporate offices and the most exclusive residences with the state of the art in environmentally sustainable design.

3 Hudson Boulevard will rise as a gently-turning tower of glass adorned with an array of photovoltaic sun screens on its southern and eastern facades. The curtain wall will be comprised of spectrally selective glass with Low-emissivity coatings for enhanced comfort and environmental performance.

3 Hudson Boulevard will provide corporate tenants with more than 1.2 million square feet of high performance, Class A office space. At the podium level, floor plates will be over 35,000 square feet with clear lease spans in excess of 60 feet. Tower office floors will be approximately 27,000 square feet with clear spans of 40 feet or more.

Office floors will be greater than 14 ft. in height with a 5-foot window module taking full advantage of the spectacular views. The office lobby will offer a grand entry experience, gracefully expressed in stone, sustainable wood and illuminated glass.

The Girasole is just one of scores of supertalls that will rise in this area. This site is unique in Manhattan because all of the parcels are zoned for huge towers that will exceed 300m.

If the Javits center was ever demolished, would any sites on that land have air rights for a 400m+ tower?

With all of these supertalls going up and proposed and planned to go up, might have have a new "tallest block"? ^.^ (Is referring to Dubai Marina. Is not trying to start city vs city. Just trying to figure out which block is taller)

The Far West Side has huge air rights because the City changed the zoning. Basically, the city and MTA agreed to extend the 7 train to 34th and 11th in an attempt to make the Jets Stadium over there more viable, and in an attempt to lure the 2012 Olympics here because that area is the largest undeveloped site/area in Manhattan, so new stuff for the Olympics could've been built there. But when both fell through, the city realized it was building this multi billion dollar subway extension to no where, so they changed the zoning to allow for huge buildings to lure developers and new projects over there, and it's working.

At least that's what I think.

FXFOWLE Hudson Yards Tower Put on Burner for 7 Train Extension

Friday, August 26, 2011, by Kelsey Keith

We like to check in with our skyscraper thread friends every so often and this week, rendered rumors have been flying in regards to The GiraSole, the FWFOWLE-designed tower slated for the Hudson Yards and first projected for completion in 2011. Not so fast! The firm's website puts the date at 2013 and debuts the shiny tower's new, stately, and as-yet nonexistent moniker: 3 Hudson Boulevard. A spokesperson for developer Moinian Group clears a few things up for us about that timing:

Quote:
"This development site is currently being net-leased by the Hudson Yards Development Corporation as a construction staging area for the MTA’s extension of the #7 subway line, which is now expected to be completed sometime in late 2013 or early 2014. The developer entered into a seven-year lease with them for this use back in 2007. They have been working very closely with the MTA and when the extension is completed the site will be well-positioned to begin development of 3 Hudson Blvd., which will have direct access to the subway. Current projections are for construction to begin soon after the subway extension is complete, most likely in 2014, with completion expected in 2016."

Sh**, we have to wait a long time. I do not imagined that this extension of the line 7 would take so long time.

Do we have any approval for this? I'd like to add this information to the 1st post then.
