I hope it has an apache helicopter in it.... And a guy in a funky hat riding a horse... Whilst brandishing a kata tans in one hand and a machine gun in the other. Sure, they could throw in a fountain with naked angels urinating as well.

You gotta love how the whole Hudson Yards project+ some surrounding projects are so many times better than almost every US skyline.

I can picture it now: Stephen Ross, a 500ft version of him on a horse made of gold, complete with the big $$$ grin as he rakes in the billions. That would be a lark. More power to him though, he did make it happen. There surely will be some kind of memorial to him when he dies.

Seriously though, it will probably be something avant garde and unusual, given the man who was tasked to design it. Brace yourself for weirdness.

That sounds like something the president of Kazahkstan would commission.

P.S.: I agree re: weirdness. Heatherwick has done only one normal looking sculpture that I'm aware of.

LOL public sculpture. Architects call them "Turds on a site" for a reason.

Heatherwick designing this does worry me a bit. I'm just going to have to take Jacko's word for it at the moment and hold my breath.

NYC buildings with mega price tags

It’s not just 1 WTC — a look at other buildings with construction costs in the billions

http://therealdeal.com/issues_articl...ion-plus-club/



Quote:
It’s no shock to hear that 1 World Trade Center, the centerpiece of the famed Lower Manhattan development site, has a construction price tag of $3.8 billion dollars.
But that world-famous tower is not the only New York City building that developers are forking over that much money to construct.

“New York developers are long on Manhattan and long on New York City,” said David Pfeffer, a co-chair of the construction practice at the Manhattan-based law firm Tarter Krinsky & Drogin. “They feel this is the place they can invest in these massively expensive buildings and get long-term returns on their investments.”

This month, The Real Deal looked at three other planned and under-construction towers — all located in the Hudson Yards area — which have $1 billion-plus price tags, according to paperwork that the development companies filed to obtain tax breaks with the New York City Industrial Development Agency, which is tasked with spurring economic development in the five boroughs.

The developers at those projects are apparently confident enough in the market to take the gamble and move ahead — that is once they have an anchor tenant.

Scott Singer, president of the financial advisory firm Singer & Bassuk, characterized the prevailing optimism: “It is the willingness to stake your reputation and financial well-being and relationships on a bet as to what market conditions will be years out in the future,” he said.

Developer: Related Companies
Address: 30 Hudson Yards (351 10th Avenue) and Shops at Hudson Yards
Buildings size/type: 2.7 million square feet (office), 1.1 million square feet (retail)


Total cost of project: $4.1 billion

Related is set to spend a massive $4.1 billion on the 84-story office tower dubbed 30 Hudson Yards and an adjacent retail complex called Shops at Hudson Yards.

The company made headlines last month when it confirmed that the high-end department store Neiman Marcus will anchor the 1.1 million-square-foot mall with its debut 250,000-square-foot outpost in New York City. No tenants have been announced yet for the 2.7 million-square-foot office tower, which has an address of 351 10th Avenue.

Jacking up the price of the two towers is the cost of the land ($193 million) and the platform ($721 million) that needs to be built over the famed rail yards. The joint price tag for both of those line items comes to $913 million, tax-abatement documents showed.

“If you look at Hudson Yards, you almost can’t compare anything to it because of the cost of the platforms,” said Jeffrey Schotz, an executive vice president at developer SJP Properties, which developed the 1.1 million-square-foot office building 11 Times Square.

The rest of the $4.1 billion price tag was made up of roughly $2.2 billion in hard costs — for things like constructing the building and installing mechanical systems — and $1.1 billion in soft costs for financing and leasing the office space.

According to the Related’s tax filing, it funded 34 percent of the project with equity, 27 percent through debt, 24 percent from future tenants pitching in for construction costs, and 14 percent from mezzanine financing.

Related, which is headed by Stephen Ross and Jeff Blau, did not respond to requests for comment.

Building is quite expensive, but that 25% is spent on soft costs for financing and leasing is flabbergasting.

The centerpiece of the plaza will be a giant equestrian statue of De Blasio dropping a groundhog on its head.

Slippery buggers.

I can't wait for the design to be revealed.

The centrepiece will be a giant empty plinth and a post-it note saying '**** it, we were never going to do better than Chicago anyway'

That's a very odd perspective. Are they building ten supertalls in Chi right now?
