Most of the work I believe is related to constructing the platforms over the tracks.

Yes, and this is a very active MTA/LIRR storage yard, which can NOT be shut down. The overbuild platform area with the most visible progress is at the NW corner of 10 HY, wher they have started erecting the platform steel above the remnants of the LIRR's MoE (Maniteneance of Equipment) structure.

That shows up best in this ILNY photo:


ILNY 6.21

This photo is looking east along the 31st street grid from the 11th Ave viaduct. The overbuild is the "rusty" steel behind the red crane at photo left, the steel remains of the LIRR MoE building is below the new, "rusty", steel.
"preserving a right of way for a new trans hudson tunnel" is the excavation to the left (north) of the current overbuild/MoE structure. Once the concrete casing for the tunnel box is completed in that area & backfilled, they (T-P) will start overbuilding/restoring the MoE building there. Amtrack is paying the LIRR x millions per month for the loss of their MoE facilities until the facilities are restored.
etc.
etc.

It's really a major project.

I hope so. Javits is going to look very out of place when all that's done, and even more so with Phase II descending towards the waterfront, surrounding it on two sides with towers.

Also, 30 HY really does not stand out much in that crowd. Too bad. I guess the Hudson Spire will just have to be the signature tower after all.

Off topic, I just searched up that building and holy damn it has an awesome atrium!
Sorry guys, but this isn't going anywhere.

That is a hidden icon for 80s NY right there.

Yea The Javits atrium is awesome but the rest of the building is woefully outdated

It's from the 80s, and it doesn't modernize itself! You just gotta appreciate its era sometimes.

You're absolutely right. It's a beautiful, although short building. I usually go there for an annual car show. It certainly seems more modern and clean than the rail yard.

Calm down there Mr. Moses. There is no need for unilateral action. A lot of the buildings in this area are old, yes. Though instead of the bulldozer what they need is a Cubic Butt Ton of TLC.

AquaBlue wants to destroy NYC's culture and turn it into West China -_- I'm all for new development and moving NYC towards the future, but you can't ignore its past

Less glassy buildings and more classy limestone if you ask me.

Sorry to be off topic, but just to prove that the Hudson Yards isn't all just plain glass towers...

2 buildings in that render will have nice facades, one with a fancy black indented ribbed grid pattern:

55 Hudson Yards - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...517269&page=19





The other might be limestone or copper or some sort based on renders:

35 Hudson Yards - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1656022





Also these are just concepts, but shows a facade with fins which helps to break it up and add identity:

50 Hudson Yards - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1667039





You can also see another version of that buildings base to the left here:
