No, it's little brother in the foreground in under construction while the North Tower (big one) is seeking one or two more tenants so it can begin construction by late-2014 to 2015.

the west side rail yards are the last untouched overbuilt area of New York. soon no long will you drive down manhattan and have the skyline be dominated by starret-lehigh.
sad, but is the nature of New York. constant evolution. works well to complete the highline plan.

the official site has been back and forth between 47 and 52 floors, apparently it's 52.

Video: Inside Hudson Yards’ Proposed ‘Culture Shed’
http://blogs.wsj.com/metropolis/2013...-culture-shed/

Quote:
New York City officials are pushing for the creation of an unusual, telescoping exhibition space called Culture Shed in the Hudson Yards Development on the west side of Manhattan.

This architectural video rendering, provided by the city in response to a Freedom of Information request, shows how a transparent, 125-foot-tall shell that nests around the building would roll out on tracks to envelop an 18,000 square-foot plaza adjacent to the High Line.

The design, by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in partnership with the Rockwell Group, has four levels of galleries and the shell that—at the touch of a button—extends out from the building and more than doubles the first-floor exhibition space to 30,000 square feet. Deploying the shell would take 15 minutes.

Supporters of the project say Culture Shed would fill a void in the city’s arts landscape by establishing a venue for large-scale art exhibitions and performances that wouldn’t fit elsewhere. Members of Manhattan’s Community Board 4 object, however, to the way the shell would restrict access to the public, outdoor plaza.

The city’s planning commission is expected to vote soon on the zoning application for the project.

Developer May Swap Land for More in Hudson Yards
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/18/ny...ards.html?_r=0

"There has never been a lot of love lost between the rival developers Gary Barnett of Extell and Stephen M. Ross of Related Companies.

But the two men, both prolific builders, are putting aside their differences long enough to exchange properties and money on the real estate chessboard known as Manhattan.

The deal, which real estate executives say will be signed in the coming days, would make Related the largest landowner in the 50-block Hudson Yards district on the Far West Side of Manhattan.

On Friday afternoon, the two sides were exchanging deal documents under which Mr. Ross would agree to buy a one-acre site owned by Mr. Barnett on the east side of 11th Avenue, between 33rd and 34th Streets, for an undisclosed sum, according to three people who have been briefed on the negotiations but were not authorized to discuss the agreement.

At the same time, Related Companies and Boston Properties would sell Extell a small parcel on the east side of Eighth Avenue, between 45th and 46th Streets, where Related and Boston had once wanted to build an office tower.

The deals would alter the state of play in Hudson Yards, where Related has started the first office tower — a new headquarters for Coach, the luxury retailer — in a $15-billion commercial and residential complex that it hopes to build at the rail yards bound by 30th and 33rd Streets, between 10th and 12th Avenues.

Related is eager to start a second tower, but tenants are hard to come by.

Mr. Barnett and a partner have long owned the parcel just north of the rail yard, at the corner of 33rd Street and 11th Avenue, where Mr. Barnett wanted to build his own 56-story office tower, called One Hudson Yards.

The soon-to-be-completed extension of the No. 7 subway line from Times Square to the West Side will have a station underneath the 11th Avenue property. Much of the foundation is already in place, meaning a tower could be built faster there.

By purchasing Mr. Barnett’s property, Mr. Ross is eliminating one of three competitors on the West Side who are competing for the rare anchor tenant in the market today: Time Warner. The media company is looking to build a new headquarters of up to 1.5 million square feet.

Time Warner’s current headquarters is in the Time Warner Center, a massive complex on Columbus Circle that was built by Related Companies.

Mr. Barnett had stymied Related’s plan to build an office tower at the Eighth Avenue property. He leads a group that owns an adjoining parcel, where they could now build an even larger tower."

This is a win, win! Presumably, Exte'll will build a hotel/residential on 8th which should be at least 800 feet tall and maybe taller.

I guarantee that Related will have a more iconic design. Related now controls the two sites just north of the HY between 33rd and 34th Streets. The two sites will be divided by the new Hudson Boulevard.

P.S.: I assume that Extell's decision to sell is related to its drive to secure funding for 225 W 57th. It seems like Extell and Hines are selling a lot of properties so that they can have the essential equity share for their respective projects at 225 and Verre.

Whoa. Big news. This seems like it could have big implications for the timeline of the Yards. Won't Related want to stagger these office towers so as not to compete with itself for the big tenants? The HY North Tower is obviously the trophy building, but because of One HY's placement on top of the subway, might they try to start work on that first? And are we sure that Related won't take Extell's design? I've really come to like it.

HY North will go first.

Related has rights to build a huge tower on the old Coach site next door. Don't forget that Related also plans a 2m sf office tower on the Western half of the HY. Thus, it will have three office towers in this immediate area in addition to Coach and the North tower.

Since it won't build them all at the same time, I hope that it makes Extel ls site and the old Coach site park land until it's ready to develop the whole thing.

Damn I really liked One Hudson. The metal diamonds helped break up the wall of glass the others will make.
