it might be 92 stories, but there are only around 70 floors....

66 is the highest occupied.

the true roof is level 69 and elevation is 1178', above that is all crown....top of overbuild platform is elevation 35-40' (depends on where you are)

I still can't believe this fat, sturdy building is still shorter than 432 Park Avenue, ESB's pinnacle, and even 22 Thames Street. I think it would be best if it were around 1400, but this is still good.

Of all the supertalls in the United States (built, uc or proposals) this is the one I love the most. The desing is awesome, and IMO it would deserve to be the tallest in New York, it's a shame it won't be.

Karen Katz & Steve Ross on CNBC

I watched the less than 2 minutes of Karen Katz/Neiman-Marcus & Steve Ross/Related on cnbc.com. It was harmless: Katz bought into Ross's vision of the Hudson Yards ("a near perfect location") & critical mass re the High Line and arts, etc.. I recognized the CNBC guy from the CNBC footage occasionally used by TheDailyShow & TheColbertReport.
http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000308361

Having been to the High Line park a few times, observed the new construction along the HL & now in the HYWSSY, and the tourists, I can believe this area has hit a critical mass.

I also believe that current congestion surrounding HY itself might die down as they build the first portions of the overbuild platform. I assume they will be able to drive their trucks directly onto the platform staging areas, reducing the need to park trucks on the closed off streets. Having said that, it makes me wonder where Brookfield will stage the curtain wall materials for the 5 MW/450 W. 33rd street reclad...

Looking SW from the SE corner of 10th & 33rd with 30HY site on right. The overbuild platform/base for The Shops at Hudson Yards has made good progress moving further north since this photo was taken

I stopped by the Exhibit this Am and will post photos. These are from various instagram accounts which are better than the ones I took. I’ll post my pics in their respective threads.

Note: The models on display are the previous designs for 15 & 35 Hudson Yards, which indicated imo the designs still may be in flux.

Lovely!

Very nice and look forward to all the additional pics, V _G! The dithering over 15 and 35 still irks me..lol I had no problem with EITHER original one, especially loved the waterfalling cylindrical cascade of the first Equinox designs. I just hope they fix on something before they ruin them!

I'm wondering if Related would really plant trees along 34th street to make a separation with their project with the rest of the Hudson Boulevard.

Maybe a tree here and there would be fine, but It would be my preference that it would be open for visual continuation looking up to the rest of the boulevard.

Perhaps they're just there to decorate that bit just to finish it off, otherwise it may have looked a bit too exposed and bland?

I hope they don't do that as I'd assume they'd want a free flowing area

It may make a seperation with the rest of the boulevard, but they're also blocking themselves out from everyone else so I can't see it playing an advantage for anyone really I guess

The base of the tower still appears too bulky for my taste. I'd prefer more height and less base. I also don't like the jumbled nature of all those shards down low.

Overall, not a bad tower though. The mall lacks inspiration sadly.

I'm almost happy they got rid of the curvy equinox. The two curvy towers together just didn't work well. I like the new boxy design better here. Great that they got rid of the corset, just looked like a party piece that would be considered tacky and ridiculous in 20 years.

The "Hudson Boulevard and Park" (per NYC zoning doc link below) is owned/controlled by some kind of public/quasi-public entity (HYDC? NYC Parks? ?), so I think the stand of trees on 34th is just a modeler letting their imagination free. The

HY NY FB photo of platform progress

The HY NY FB page posted an undated photo today (9/11) that is consistent with being recent. Photo is looking SW and shows a few columns in various stages of assembly on 33rd street. They seem to be getting serious with the concrete wall they've been been building north of the tracks. And at least one caisson drill (photo right, top)is drilling further west (towards the 11th Ave viaduct) in that ~central stripe of shut down tracks.

It looks like they have a beam attached to the top of the eastern most column on 33rd street (the one topped by the USA flag)
