It still says 1337 feet

for a building that size with a slanted roof 80 floors is about right, 70 seems a bit low

500 West 30th is making a big impact on its own, but will be NOTHING in comparison!

Btw, all of these towers except for the North Tower still require a drawing (or in the case of Coach an accurate drawing) in the SSP diagrams. Maybe you could post your models there too

The reason I'm modeling it is so I can add all the new skyscrapers for the west side. I'll get those after One Hudson Yards and Girasole.



Want this in 3d.

The Hudson Yards area as seen from Ohm, 11th Avenue at West 30th. More Photos »

By C. J. HUGHES

Published: April 19, 2013
For years, Hudson Yards seemed unlikely to live up to its own hype. Rapturously heralded as New York’s soon-to-be coolest new neighborhood, it changed only slowly starting in 2005, when its industrial far West Side location was rezoned to encourage a different kind of development. Its 45 square blocks continued to look much the way they had for decades: a mishmash of rail yards, tunnel ramps and parking lots.

“When we started, it was like, ‘Will anything ever happen here?’ ” said Michael Meola, a real estate consultant who helped City Hall shape the desired look and feel of Hudson Yards in the very beginning, serving from 2006 to 2008 as vice president for development of the Hudson Yards Development Corporation, the entity overseeing the project.

Now, as the recession fades and squabbles about how to proceed are resolved, Hudson Yards finally appears poised to make good on its promised self-reinvention.

In the last few months, warehouses have been cleared for buildings and parks. Workers are finishing a subway station. The third and last leg of the High Line, looping from West 30th to West 34th Street, will be just one of many green spaces in the neighborhood. And in a place that has long been home to a suburban-style McDonald’s drive-through window, a market will open to sell grass-fed sirloin and other delicacies to an upscale clientele.

The biggest change is on the residential side, as the city’s largest developers undertake major apartment projects, some of which have been waiting to get off the ground for years. The roll call includes the Extell Development Company, the Related Companies, Glenwood Management, Silverstein Properties, Brookfield Office Properties and the Moinian Group.

From 2005 to 2011, about 6,000 apartments were built in what is considered the Hudson Yards zone, roughly running from 8th to 12th Avenue and from 30th to 42nd Street. But most of the new buildings avoided the neighborhood’s heart in favor of its eastern fringes.

Since 2012, another 3,500 units in the thick of the neighborhood have opened or begun construction, or are about to, according to developers, brokers and city officials.

Those 10,000 or so new and planned units put the area halfway to the 20,000 mark, the number that officials say it can support. But given both the sizzling rental market and the oversaturated commercial market, there could yet be even more housing: a movement is afoot to tweak the zoning rules in that direction.

For some, the glittering high-rises and carefully designed green spaces have come at a price.

Ann Warren owns the Cupcake Cafe on Ninth Avenue and 40th Street, which has been in business since 1988. She was forced out of her apartment, on 35th Street near 11th Avenue, when the city used eminent domain to take her building for a new park in Hudson Yards.

“I could see somebody thinking of this area as underutilized,” said Ms. Warren, who moved with the city’s help to a walk-up on 10th Avenue, “but I certainly liked seeing the blue sky.” Still, she acknowledged, at a time when no area seems to go undiscovered for too long, “I guess all this was inevitable.”

Despite its status as the city’s most ambitious effort since Battery Park City, most people at the moment could not locate Hudson Yards on a map. But as it continues its transition past the concept stages into reality, there is at last a sense it is coming into its own.

“Hudson Yards was a long-range plan when nobody believed in long-range plans,” Mr. Meola said. “But we’re finally reaching a critical mass.”

What’s Being Built

Developers are not only coming on strong, they’re thinking as big as the rezoning will allow.

Extell, like some of its competitors, controls several parcels in the area. Its first apartment building will be 555 10th Avenue, a 50-story rental at West 41st Street with 600 units, a pair of swimming pools and a two-lane bowling alley, said Gary Barnett, Extell’s chief executive. Foundations were poured in March; 2016 is the expected completion date.

Units will rent for around $100 a square foot, which is on par with 42nd Street properties like MiMA, from the Related Companies, Mr. Barnett said.

It looks better and more massive than any European skyline as well. That render is just sick.

this looks amazing! But I have to say that I still prefer oldschool art deco skyscrapers. Would be nice to see something like that again.
