E Tower is very reminiscent of the Chicago Trump Tower. If this building can even come close to the refinement of the Chicago building, this will be a very pleasing tower.

Hi NY from Australia. I thought the design similarities between Hudson Yards and Crown Casino & Hotel development in Sydney might be of interest. These were released Friday. http://goo.gl/yttDn (hi res PDF)

KPF are great architects hopefully Australia can become home to another one of their designs.

It's great to see Related were able to get tower one precommited with good tenants and start construction on HY.

That's just for office space though. Barangaroo has a 250m+ Casino planned and several 200m+ residential towers. Shouldn't be as big as Hudson Yards though, this baby is my... Baby.

I think this new CBD of NYC will set new standarts of how a CBD has to be build, how the quality should be and how everything should functiuon in coordination with each other on such a broad scale. I can´t wait for it to really pick steam.

But isn't that Crown Casino like 1/2 the height of Hudson Yards? It would be barely visible in Midtown

I have to say by adding the stone look to the facade of this building is a very nice suprise. I'm very happy with this instead of an "All Glass Building". It will add a nice character to the Hudson Yards. This just shot on up my list of buildings i am VERY interested in, probably higher on the list than the Corset which is one of my favs.

Office developers compete for anchor tenants on Manhattan’s western edge

Quote:
Only a few times in modern Manhattan history has an entirely new office district sprung up all at once. In the 1930s, there was Rockefeller Center; the 1970s saw the World Trade Center complex; and today, developers are planning nearly 15 million square feet of new office space in the Hudson Yards area in the 30s on the Far West Side.

The new projects expected to rise over the next decade include the Related Companies’ North and South towers at Hudson Yards, Extell Development’s One Hudson Yards, Brookfield Office Properties’ Manhattan West and Moinian’s 3 Hudson Boulevard, as well as Sherwood Equities’ 447 10th Avenue and Alloy Development’s 450 Hudson Park Boulevard.

But before starting construction on these new towers, developers must first land an anchor tenant willing to take at least 400,000 square feet of space. With only a finite number of large potential renters, the competition for office tenants is heating up, as some of the city’s top commercial leasing brokers and developers battle each other with slick marketing campaigns and — of course — behind-the-scenes jabs at rival projects.

[...]

There are currently 10 to 20 companies said to be on the hunt for large chunks of Manhattan office space, brokers said. These include media companies Time Warner, Sony, CBS and News Corp.; law firms White & Case and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom; advertising firm GroupM; financial giant Credit Suisse; and fashion house Ralph Lauren. Brokers for the new Hudson Yards–area towers are fighting to lure these tenants, but their efforts could be in vain if companies decide to stay in their current locations, or move to existing office towers instead. Despite these challenges, Hudson Yards so far appears to be beating the odds. Last month, Related snagged two more tenants for the South Tower: French cosmetics maker L’Oreal and software firm SAP.

Developers in the area are also competing for tax benefits. A 15-year, 40 percent property tax reduction is being offered for the first 5 million square feet of office space to be built west of 10th Avenue. Related said last month that it will apply for the tax break for the South Tower, which would leave about 3.3 million square feet up for grabs. After the first 5 million, the tax break drops to 25 percent.

But some developers may hold off on construction until the neighborhood is more established and competition wanes. “We are waiting until rents get really attractive before we build,” said Ryan Nelson, senior vice president at Sherwood Equities. “Truthfully, it will probably be the next [construction] cycle.” For the time being, sources said asking rents for most of the new towers range from $80 to $90 per square foot.

This month, The Real Deal took an in-depth look at the new towers planned for the Far West Side, and how they’re faring in the race to nab tenants.

North and South Tower

Size: North Tower, 2.4 million sq. ft.; South Tower, 1.7 million sq.

Expected delivery: South Tower, 2016; North Tower, 2018


In the most highly anticipated project on the Far West Side, Related and Oxford Properties have teamed up on a $15 billion, 26-acre Hudson Yards mixed-used project. Last month, Related made major headway on the project when it inked a 99-year, $1 billion lease for the eastern portion of the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s rail yards, which stretch from 30th to 33rd streets and from 10th to 11th avenues.

Construction started in December on the South Tower, which is located at 501 West 30th Street and is the first building planned for the parcel. It took more than three years to lure Coach, which ultimately purchased a 740,000-square-foot commercial condo from Related. (As part of the deal, Related agreed to acquire Coach’s building a block north at 516 West 34th Street.) Now, the South Tower is more than 80 percent leased (including expansion options), with L’Oreal in contract to occupy 402,000 square feet and SAP having signed a lease for 115,000 square feet.

Related will have to do it all over again with its second, larger building, the North Tower. Adding to the challenge is that the North Tower, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, will rise on an 8.6-acre platform covering active Long Island Rail Road tracks. (Construction on the $750 million platform will also provide a foundation for several other buildings.)

Competing brokers who asked not to be identified said potential tenants might have a hard time imagining the long-discussed platform being constructed any time soon. But Related’s Cross said construction on the platform will start in January. That would allow for delivery of the building in 2018, as long as an anchor tenant is in place, he said.

As a selling point, Related is highlighting the large footprint of the North Tower, which financial firms could use for trading floors. Plus, the skyscraper will be adjacent to a planned 500,000-square-foot retail building, which Related hopes will allay tenants’ concerns about being isolated on the Far West Side with few food and shopping options. “We are part of a mixed-use project,” Cross said, “so you don’t have to think about an in-house cafeteria [like] you might in other projects.”

To sweeten the pot, Related is also offering to swap properties or sell portions of the building as commercial condos, as it did with Coach. Related has also offered that the first companies that sign on for space will get in “at cost.” Cross pegged the approximate asking rent for the North Tower at $90 per square foot and the price for a condo sale at between $900 and $1,100 per foot, for a hypothetical 1 million square feet.

Exhibit, Speakers Detail the Grand Design of Hudson Yards

May 1, 2013.



BY SCOTT STIFFLER | “This is going to be the Gold Coast for the city,” said Mayor Michael Bloomberg at a December 4, 2012 public unveiling of the Hudson Yards development — where he also dubbed it “Manhattan’s final frontier” (and has since called it New York City’s “Next Great Neighborhood”).

Such grand and confident predictions, in this case at least, are hardly the stuff of hyperbole. When complete, the 26-acre site will accommodate over 13 million square feet — including more than 6 million square feet of commercial space, 750,000 square feet of destination retail space, cinemas, specialty restaurants, markets and bars, with 14 acres of new open spaces and parks. It will also be home to approximately 5,000 residences, a new school and a luxury hotel. The 1.7 million square foot South Tower (currently under construction, slated to open in 2015) will be the world headquarters of Coach, Inc.



If those raw numbers seem difficult to fathom, imagine being tasked with the challenge of coming up with a plan of action to take Hudson Yards from a hole in the ground to a gleaming forest of towering structures. Others have, of course — and now they’re pulling the curtain back. “Design(in) The New Heart of New York” is a two-month exhibit revealing the art behind the architecture.

An eight-week speaker series will complement the exhibit, offering visitors the chance to hear directly from (and interact with) architects, designers, civic leaders, developers and city partners. Included in the speaker series:

On May 16, prominent architectural writer Joseph Giovannini and Bill Pedersen, founding design partner of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), will discuss the evolution of the urban, high-rise commercial office building (at Hudson Yards and around the world). On May 30, David Childs, FAIA, Consulting Design Partner at Skidmore Owings & Merrill, talks about the complexities of designing a mixed-use building in a mixed-use development.

On June 11, Holly Leicht, Executive Director of New Yorkers for Parks, joins Matthew Johnson, Senior Associate at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Lisa Switkin, Associate Partner at James Corner Field Operations, Peter Mullan, Vice President for Planning & Design at Friends of the High Line and Matthew Urbanski, Principal at Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates for a discussion about the evolution of parks on Manhattan’s west side (with a focus on the creation of the High Line and Hudson River Park). The lecture series concludes on June 25, when Elizabeth Diller, Principal at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, joins David Rockwell, President of the Rockwell Group, to discuss the conceptual and technical development of the 72-story Hudson Yards residential tower.



The exhibit, which runs from May 1 through June 30 at the American Institute of Architects, New York Center for Architecture (536 LaGuardia Place, btw. Bleecker St. & W. 3rd St.), will feature never-before-seen architecture and design elements. To commemorate the opening of the exhibit, Open House New York will host two guided tours of the exhibit on Saturday, May 4. The first 5,000 visitors to the exhibit (and other Hudson Yards AIA events) will receive a “Build our Own Hudson Yards” postcard set designed by world-renowned paper engineer Keisuke Saka. For more information, visit hudsonyardsnewyork.com, aiany.org and nycdesign.com.

1 Yonge in Toronto has a sort of Hudson Yards vibe to it.

I saw the exhibit today and left with a solid piece of lumber. That's how good it is. One of the models also included Manhattan West. It showed two office towers of unequal height, both of which had the beer belly design. The larger was about 390m and had a sloped roof. However, the MW towers were modeled in different glass than the other towers, which suggested to me that its design is not final.

So does this mean Manhattan West has a solid chance of eventually being built? I certainly hope so.

Manhattan West definitely will be built. It's a matter of when. I doubt that it will be in this cycle.
