Now this is a dedicated North Tower thread... not sure where to post this for Hudson Yards in general. Anyway in the past I was wondering what kind of art structure Mr. Ross of related was planning to build for the Yards and here's an article that touches on it a bit.

9 Little-Known Facts About Stephen Ross and Hudson Yards
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2013/0...dson_yards.php

Quote:
Because Related bought the railyards from the city, the developer's land costs are "locked in," which means that Hudson Yards can become a veritable gold mine for the developer. Tully explains that Related cut deals with the construction unions that lowered building costs, and allowed the company to offer lower prices to early tenants like Coach and (probably) Time Warner. Ross says they're "breaking even, at best" on current leases, but "the big money is in retail and residential" and residential constitutes half of Hudson Yards. And everyone knows that rentals and condos are way more profitable than office space. Jeff Blau, described by Fortune as Related's "ace deal maker," says, "When residential prices rise, so do land costs, which takes away most of the profit. But we've locked in our land costs over many years. They can't be bid up."
Quote:
He was a really big crybaby about losing the original Hudson Yards bid in Mach 2008 to Tishman Speyer. Tully writes, "Ross was disconsolate. Within days he was telling anyone who would listen that he shouldn't have been so cautious and rational and should have stayed in the race, even without an anchor tenant. 'When Stephen lost the first time, he went through an unspeakable litany,' says Marty Edelman, a real estate attorney with Paul Hastings and a longtime friend of Ross's. "He kicked everybody and anybody for everything. No one escaped except the doorman—until he finally settled on blaming himself.'"
Quote:
Ross really truly does want the public plaza's sculpture to be the centerpiece attraction of the new neighborhood. He previously told New York magazine, he wanted it to be "a modern-day Trevi Fountain" and that idea has only intensified: "He's holding an epic sculpt-off, auditioning the works not of one great sculptor, but six. The contest is rumored to pit such legends as Anish Kapoor, Jeff Koons, Thomas Heatherwick, and Richard Serra, or others in their class, against one another. According to his staff, Ross is telling the famous contestants to 'raise their games,' to create something totally unlike anything they've done before. The colossal work will be many stories high and could cost upwards of $100 million. 'This sculpture will be the greatest tourist attraction in New York,'" Ross immodestly predicts. 'It will be more than the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center, but 365 days a year. It will be to this city what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris."
Wow! It would be cool if it will be some towering industrial like steel structure standing as tall as the Eiffel tower at 1,000 ft.

With a statue description that boasting, it's bound to disappoint.

Hmmmmm... I honestly don't know what to expect
I'm guessing it's gonna be big... But the footprint can't be that big though?

There was a Video posted here several months ago which showed how exactly the construction will be done to build these skyscrapers over these train tracks.

Its buried somewhere in these pages.

Can someone post that again.

It will but a towering fountain sculpture? I'm wondering how that would work. hehe. What ever it will be I can't wait to see what kind of design it will be. Honestly though hopefully he abandons the fountain idea but I could be surprised.

A sculpture as a greater attraction than such icons as the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty? Possibly the most interesting part of the development.

Thanks! It will keep my hopes high for my #1 project and give me something to look forward to in 2014!

2 WTC will be the crown jewel of the city.

Yes, it's pretty nice. The fountain is located in the Schönbrunner Garten, right behind the famous castle Schönbrunn.

On further thought, the sculpture could be crap. Kapoor's multi-story sculpture in London is hideous.

Developer Says $100 Million Sculpture At Hudson Yards Will Be 'New York's Eiffel Tower'
Mark Maurer, The Real Deal Aug. 30, 2013, 12:51 PM 2,997 3

Quote:
5M Related Companies founder Stephen Ross is predicting that a still-to-be-designed sculpture at Hudson Yards will be New York’s Eiffel Tower and more symbolic than the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center — and will be key in making his megaproject “the new heart” of the city. Ross is putting the gigantic piece of artwork in the public plaza of the 13 million-square-foot neighborhood, which is being developed jointly by Related and Oxford Properties Group. The companies are holding a contest — six famous sculptors, including Richard Serra and Anish Kapoor, have been invited to submit drawings — and are putting the cost at nearly $100 million, Fortune reported.
