The poster after you then took it sarcastically, he interpreted what you said as a negative so I'm sorry I took it as you were coding a backhanded compliment with your response than just giving your honest response.

Still, the attracting people part is the important component, it's a symbol so it really doesn't have to serve another purpose than to be as you said "pretty cool".

As per HY's FB page, the sculpture will be interactive.

Hudson Yards Archtober Profile - Thomas Woltz Thomas Woltz is the principal and owner of Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, and the Wall Street Journal Magazine's 2013 Design Innovator of the Year. For the past 18 years, Thomas and his firm have been dedicated to creating landscapes that honor, reveal and preserve the unique narrative and complex ecosystem of each site, in projects that range from urban parks and botanic gardens to post industrial sites and agricultural land. At Hudson Yards, Woltz and his team are designing the Public Square as a premier destination for New Yorkers and visitors; the public space artfully combines perennial and shrub gardens, a bosque, a café terrace, an interactive sculpture, a water fountain, and a court that complements and connects the soaring towers. "With six acres of public space," says Woltz, "we have the opportunity to create a palette and range of gathering spaces within the plaza…The trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, each of these plays a role in creating human scaled space."

Is this sculpture the same as the monument that will be done by Hetherwick??


This is the best photo I've seen of that model display!





What is that tower behind 30 Hudson? Is that supposed to be 50 Hudson Yards?

Too bad it doesn't include a massing of McCourt's tower or any of the potential developments that could rise a block South of HY Phase II.

Yea I agree, that would have been amazing to see.

Of all the projects that does not have a design released yet, 360 10th and the Hudson Spire are tops on my highly anticipated list.

It is. And it has to carry quite a bit of load.

That appears to be an alternate plan for 50 HY. It consists of a roughly 750' office tower and a roughly 1,100' residential which share a common base.

With the placement of the first columns that support the tower, I think this should be U/C

I can confirm that those columns support tower superstructure. Think of them as basement level columns.

Some of the massive built up columns have been installed and some more are standing on street level waiting to be placed. Once the massive girders are installed, this will begin rising.

I absolutely agree. Those columns are part of the tower based on the diagrams we saw. This one is u/c, there's no debate there.

its the lower A frame columns specifically that support the tower. The taller standard shape columns actually support the edge of the retail podium. The north edge of retail actually supports the tower through a series of trusses at level 9.
