Steel starting to go up north & west of 10 HY

So T-P is racing along getting the SE corner of the platform started/MoE building rebuilt (soon?) & the east end of the Amtrak tunnel casing built & excavation backfilled.

The 5/7 Engadget article's photos provide context to the HY NY FB photo above. Photo 3 (snip below) from the article shows a caisson drill (@ work, I assume) drilling what is probably one of the foundations for one of the overbuild platform columns shown in the FB post. This view is looking mostly west, probably from the not-yet-demolished vehicle ramp down from 10th Ave.


Joseph Volpe/engadget.com
The 5/7 article has a 30 photo gallery from all around the HY site.
http://www.engadget.com/2014/05/07/h...-neighborhood/

This means we should see overbuild platform steel going up both in the Amtrak tunnel box area (shown above) and for the adjacent Culture Shed plaza, which is mentioned in the 10 HY thread. mmkkk & thejacko5 posted pictures of the crane support steel & column steel for that plaza starting here:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=696

I've re-posted a thejacko5 photo from 5/16 showing culture shed plaza (aka knows as the terra firma platform/plaza) column steel and crane support steel going up:

thejacko5/ssc, view is looking SE towards 10HY & the High Line


Hopefully somebody will provide some current views from the 11th Ave viaduct or maybe even from the work sites themselves...

Tutor-Perini has covered 5 tracks next to the Gateway Tunnel with wooden crane mats. Caissons are being drilled at this location.. This is in addition to the work on the north side at 33 St.

Didn't this just technically start construction? At least the platform?

Drill




Vacuum/rail truck.















More tracks have been fenced off.




First platform columns erected! You can see platform height now.

Those platform colums will have to bear the load of the towers? They will probably be very massive.

those columns may support some platform steel, but in that area, they would be supporting the retail.

They do not look particularly big. Maybe they support the new MOE structure....

They are nothing like the columns on the drawings for the main platform areas.

Thanks to ILNY & UrbanImpressionist for new photos

ILNYs are in this thread; the Memorial Day photos by UrbanImpressionist are in the 10 HY thread @ SSP:
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...&postcount=398

One of his oblique views from the Ohm building provides an overview of most of the 30 HY site (upper left of phto) and I've reposted it below. I think the previously mentioned/photographed 1st two columns in the rail yard (next to north side of LIRR MoE bldg remnant) also appear in this view. I'm ASSSUMING one of the columns is for the MoE building re-build and the other (taller) one is for the retail platform:


UrbanImpressionist/SSP(R. J. Vojir - Cityscape Oil Painter)

He also capture a great view (looking east from the 11th Ave viaduct) of the Amtrak Gateway tunnel excavation, reposted below. This view shows that T-P has gotten to the concrete/rebar invert (floor) for the tunnel casing at BOTH ends of the excavation. The eastern end is further along and you can see the center wall that divides the two future (I hope) tracks. You also get a "street" level view of the same two columns in this photo. I assume T-P is prioritizing both ENDS of the tunnel casing/excavation os they can start rebuilding the MoE bldg/building the retail platform at the east end and the north foundations of the culture tower at the west end.

I am not sure the platform columns need to be much if any bigger than the steel framework on any other tower of this height. The building core will be doing all the heavy lifting as usual.

The Manitowoc 18000 has arrived on site and the Hudson Yards construction crew is working on getting the latticework and boom up today! The Manitowoc crane will help build the platform by moving the trusses and beams into place. Some of the trusses at Hudson Yards will be between 15 and 20 feet tall and weigh about 2 tons per linear foot.

Heavy Duty crane IS for 30 HY

Thank you for posting those photos! Also good to see Vinny S. photos appear in project threads I have an interest in.

I had seen the photo & read the caption on the HY NY FB page but was still wondering where, exactly, the crane was going. Your photos resolved that: west of the LIRR control tower/substation.

So we'll see a DIFFERENT crane rise at the Culture Shed plaza, west of 10 HY.

T-P is really getting the equipment in place to deliver at least the platform portions that they show for 2014:

I am definitely NOT a structural engineer but I ASSUME the columns that 30 HY south face trusses rest on will be massive. I've reposted a diagram from bloomberg which also indicates by happenstance where the Manitowoc is being assembled. Namely at the left end of the diagonal line from "BUILDABLE AREAS" (just south outh of 33rd St)

Yea, you can see clearly here that at least half of the building weight does not rest vertically beneath the main columns, but gets redistribute by trusses. So naturally they are going to be beasts. I'm super excited to see them.

Yea, I assume they will be beasts also. I forgot to repost (yet again) the overall Hudson Yards phase 1 timeline with the platform diagram, so I am reposting it below.

I think the "2014" diagram still has relevance to where T-P might be platform wise at the end of this year. Especially since they seem to be close, NOW, to have mobilized most of the equipment needed to BUILD the "2014" sections of the platform shown. MAYBE the Matinowc crane is being assembled right where that gap in the north side of the 2014 platform is shown...:

Thank you solgoldberg! I am Vinny S. from flickr. Ill try to stop by the site every now and then when I'm in the city and get some shots.

Here is another shot from the 28th. Shows how close the 18000 really is to the street, which is the reason i'm guessing that they are using the 250ton to assemble it rather than their 500ton.

Thank you.

For those not intimately familiar with the area, this Vinny S. photo is looking ~SSE from W33rd St and shows (what I call) the yellow hydraulic crane
assembling the red HEAVY DUTY Manitowoc 18000 crane on the other side of the construction fence. Up until recently the construction fence was a tall concrete security wall on the south sidewalk of W33rd street to keep people out of the LIRR's West Side Storage Yard.

As a visual indication of change/progress my photo below shows what this area looked like (looking east w south side of W33rd at left edge) in January of this year. Since then T-P has demolished the ramp leading down from W33rd, demolished parts of the concrete wall at left, brought in a caisson drill, this crane, etc.:

Good progress assembling "strongest" crane in NYC

From the HY NY FB page

Hudson Yards Fun Fact Friday!

Did you know the toughest reservation in Manhattan is at Hudson Yards? It's true! There are only 50 Manitowoc cranes in all of North America and Hudson Yards had to reserve its crane more than 9 months ago. Affectionately named "Joanie", the Hudson Yards Manitowoc has a lifting capacity of 660 tons and is the strongest crane being used in New York City today!

Hudson Yards New York FB

Nice weather: I assume the photo was taken Friday, 5/30.
