All of those buildings are so "New York"! It fits in really well. Seriously, would anyone rather see Dubai type buildings with fancy crowns? Or a copper clad Mercury City type structure in there?

If this was Miami you would see those kind of buildings. I don't care what kind of building it is as long as it fits in.

Its too bad, because these buildings will be a valuable addition to a pretty dumpy part of NYC

I mostly agree, as far as i know Manhattan is made up of rich people (majority) as rent are higher and apartments are more expensive compared to poor area like Brox for eg. and I don't think poor people that live in Manhattan should be forced to move out to other suitable boroughs in order to clean up this city. like Hackney11 said

Well in this render it fits really well with the surroundings..

What I always think of new buildings in new york is that they 'must' be innovative and special because you know everyone is speaking about new york 'the mother of skyscrapers' but I'm not an objector of conservative designs..if it fits, its ok..

new york will have a few new, modern buildings and therefore I think its ok..

There's a decent amount of variation in the design of each building.

The cluster will look very good if they mostly stick with what's in the latest renderings.

When is this project going to start? Nice to see this part of NYC finally incorporated. It seems remote and other than the Javits nearby, this grid is a bore compared to other parts of mid Manhattan.

"Now the first signs of activity on the Hudson Yards project can be seen. Related Cos., the developer, is clearing the site for the first tower, a 1.4-million-square-foot office building." http://blogs.wsj.com/metropolis/2011...d-with-a-view/

January 16, 2011

"Related will not exactly strike it rich, given the company's plans to sell the building at cost or charge only enough rent to cover construction costs—a sum that Mr. Cross estimates at about $70 a square foot. For built-to-suit, green space, that represents a real bargain, he says. What's more, tax incentives can save tenants $6 per square foot.

Savings are only part of the draw. After completion of the No. 7 extension, slated for December 2013, it will take less than 10 minutes to reach Grand Central Terminal from Hudson Yards. Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal are even closer." http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...TATE/301169974

Like many other projects in the city, 15 Penn, Manhattan West, WTC 2 & 3, they're waiting for tenants. But at $70 a square foot, a falling vacancy rate, rising commercial rents, and about a dozen leases of 300,000+ square feet set to expire in the next few years, in addition to Wells Fargo looking for several hundred thousand square feet, BofA may need more space as well, and apparently Related (the developer) has had preliminary talks with Credit Suisse, Hearst, and Coach, this project should get going soon.

So this development will be built in phases. And with a train stop to boot, it will a desirable area for tenants who want to be close to water but still not far from midtown.

Yeah, it will be built in phases, this is their general plan, credit to NYGuy from SSP on the pictures

The new train station is a huge draw, as is the huge amount of park space, the 42nd street pedestrian boulevard, and the towers on the north side of the development that overlook the Javits Center have basically an eternal view of the Hudson and Jersey.

First Phase:


Second:


Third:


Final:
