City courting community approval of Culture Shed at Related’s Hudson Yards



Quote:
City officials are trying to stir up interest in the Culture Shed, a massive exhibition and event space in Related Cos. Hudson Yards development, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Officials have taken a series of steps in recent months to get the project on its feet and attract community support. They revealed designs showing a transparent 125-foot-tall shell that runs around the building and would roll out to surround an 18,000-square-foot plaza adjacent to the High Line. They have secured tax-exempt status for a nonprofit group that would operate the space and have assembled a board of directors, whose three members include one current and one former member of the Bloomberg administration.

The proposal has also received the endorsement of cultural stalwarts such as the directors of the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation.The board is still to estimate the cost of construction, however, and no hiring or fundraising has yet begun. The delay in appraising the cost of the project, Ryan Max, a spokesman for the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs, told the Journal, was because of difficulty in estimating the cost of the high-tech material on the shell that “has not been used very much on projects in the United States.”

“The idea here is to see a space that serves the broadest spectrum of the creative sector in New York City,” Kate Levin, the city’s commissioner for cultural affairs and a member of Culture Shed’s board, told the Journal. A project of this type, Levin added, was key to the the city’s capability to remain on the forefront of innovation.

Construction could start in the summer of 2014 and is slated to be finished at the end of 2017, Levin said. The shed must be built in tandem with the platform over the West Side rail yards and a 70-story residential tower which will connect to it.

Despite the city’s efforts, members of Manhattan’s Community Board 4 are skeptical. The board is expected to recommend on Wednesday that the City Planning Commission deny the city’s zoning application, unless the city can devise an alternative 20,000 square feet of public space at Hudson Yards.

With all this new information and amazing findings we should take the liberty of updating the Hudson Yards Wikipedia. It's still lacking some new and proper information as well as updated renderings.

You mean the English Wiki, because the German one is always up to date.

Btw this thread should be separated since the Coach Tower is U/C.

If all the proposed buildings in Hudson Yards get built there will be one more separate forest of skyscrapers like:
1. Midtown
2. Lower Manhattan
3. Hudson yards

When finished, the HY will have a skyline on its own that could rival many cities.

Offering space cheaper really does wonders for harvesting of tenants

Incredible news about L'Oreal and SAP! Piling and foundation work continues on the Coach tower as of last Friday while work has finally started on the last phase of the High Line.

Three Major Tenants Sign Leases for First Tower at Hudson Yards

http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/20...-hudson-yards/

Related is currently building the foundations for Coachtower and erecting a separate residential building on the south side of 30th Street.

Officials said that the developer planned to start work on the platform for the rest of the Eastern Yard in January in order to reduce the time it will take to erect the second office tower and attract tenants".

Which residential tower is this? I'm assuming it's not Equinox but the four bundled cylinders one.

It's the classic brick tower by Stern and is not on the HY site. It's adjacent to it though.

If Ralph Lauren moves here, the Hudson Yars will have scores of beautiful female office workers between RL, Coach, an L'Oreal, not to mention -- the annual Fashion Week event will move here too.

Big 3 eyeing Hudson Yards
By STEVE CUOZZO
April 11, 2013


Time Warner, Citibank and Ralph Lauren Polo could be the next big companies to move to mammoth new Hudson Yards on the Far West Side.

All three have had talks with Hudson Yards developer Related Cos. about taking space in the 26-acre site’s second planned skyscraper, sources said....


The North Tower will be much bigger — 80 stories and 1,337 feet tall, which is nearly as tall as 1 World Trade Center not including its spire...

Related’s talks with possible tenants for the North Tower were in the earliest stages. At least one, Citibank, recently seemed to have dropped the idea and was looking elsewhere, sources said.

But, “The finalized deals with Coach and the other tenants at the South Tower change everything,” a real-estate insider said.

“Even though everyone knew they were happening, the real-estate mind knows a deal isn’t closed until it closes. The South Tower deals swept away the last bit of uncertainty about Hudson Yards. Related has momentum now.”

The plan for Coach to move its headquarters there was first heralded by Mayor Bloomberg and others at a photo-op on Nov. 1, 2011.

And leases with L’Oréal and SAP have been reported for months. What happened this week was the final crossing of t’s and dotting of i’s, which Related also did with the site’s owner, the MTA.

Thanks. Attention has shifted indeed to landing tenants for the north tower.

Quote:
Related chief Stephen Ross is furiously courting tenants for the project’s North Tower after inking deals yesterday with three major companies for the South Tower — Coach Inc., L’Oréal and tech firm SAP. They will occupy 80 percent of the 47-story building, scheduled to open in 2015.

The North Tower will be much bigger — 80 stories and 1,337 feet tall, which is nearly as tall as 1 World Trade Center not including its spire.

The South Tower has started construction at 10th Avenue and 31st Street on Hudson Yards’ eastern edge. The North Tower will go up at 10th and 33rd Street once tenants are signed up.

I saw related´s video, how they are going to build the platform. But i am still puzzled with how they will build the foundations and static elements for the buildings, directly over the rail tracks. Can someone elaborate it, please?

I love the North Tower.

PS: The site of Coach's current HQ on the north side of 33rd, just west of 10th, is visible on the Lower right hand corner of that model. Related will develop that parcel, which has over 2m sf of space, when Cosch's new HQ is completed. If Related can acquire the adjacent parcels (which include a large, one story McDonald's with a huge parking lot), they could have a site with probably over 5.5m sf. Imagine the possibilities!
