Also, Related will soon have to start paying huge rents to the MTA who own the site. 2 of the 3 economic triggers have been met, and I think the only one that hasn't is in regard to Midtown Manhattans office vacancy rate which has been falling steadily the last several quarters so they'll have to start paying rent soon which is why they want the first part of this to get underway asap.

There are also a handful of other developments planned for the surrounding area, two 1000 footers in the Girasole and Sherwood Equities tower, a 30 story condo south of the site, etc. Related has said that the whole thing could very well take a decade to complete, so be patient.
I wish I could believe it all gets built as well. And considering the great reasoning for city growth, I'm excited to see the progress made throughout the decade. Plus you never know, maybe well all be surprised and see this get built entirely.

Big Hudson Yards lease (nearly) in (Coach) bag

Related Cos. seen as close to landing its first anchor office tenant for its sprawling West Side commercial and residential development; could clear way for construction to begin.

By Daniel Massey and Amanda Fung
July 20, 2011 1:30 p.m.

"The Related Cos. is very close to signing on the anchor office tenant it needs to begin construction of its sprawling Hudson Yards project over the rail yards west of Penn Station, sources said...

Coach, the Manhattan-based high-end luxury handbag and accessories maker, could sign a term sheet to commit itself to roughly 600,000 square feet of office space at the new development as soon as next month, sources said.

... if finalized, Related would finally be able to secure the financing needed to begin construction on the 26-acre site...

A spokeswoman for Related said the firm is talking to more than a dozen potential tenants...

The master plan for the entire $15-billion, 12-million-square-foot project includes three office buildings; nine residential towers with 5,000 units; a 750,000-square-foot, glass-encased mall; a school; a cultural center; and 12-acres of open space. The project will take as long as 15 years to complete. The developer has said the project's first office tower could open as early as 2015."

Crains New York.

Wow, I don't remember a project this ambitious in the US since the highway program, and for New York for that matter. This is one project I REALLY hope comes to fruition.

Man, this looks like another WTC. I'm surprised that in the current economic times a project of this magnitude gets proposed.

This doesn't need approvals of any sort, so Related can start construction whenever they want to which as the article hints to, will be sooner rather than later. Would not be surprised if the first tower which looks like it'll be in the 800-900 foot range starts this year.

Whoops, those must have slipped my mind. (yes, things that sizable slip my mind) Well either way, I'm sure you must find this project to be ambitious in every sense of the word.

As per the NY Observer, the first of the office towers will be around 300m tall, and it's the shortest one!

"Scaling the Towers of Hudson Yards"
By Matt Chaban 1:38pm

Big boys. (YouTube)
It’s funny how a story comes about sometimes.
Following the news that Coach is poised to sign a lease at Hudson Yard, the first of possibly a dozen, a reader wrote in with a simple question: How tall is the bag-maker’s new redoubt? We turned to Google but there was no clear answer, so we asked around to our sources who know the site. Answer: about 1,000 feet. Also, a gentle reminder that, because this is one of the few pieces being built on terra firma, as soon as said lease and some financing is in place, construction can commence and be done by 2015.

What is interesting about this news is it sheds a little more light on the gigantic project and just how big it really is. At 1,000 feet, the KPF-designed south tower would be in the top five tallest buildings in the city, just barely ahead of 7 World Trade and right around the Chrysler Building—if we’re counting antennas, it’s technically surpassed by the Times Building, the old AIG tower and One Bryant Park, but everyone knows you shouldn’t count the antennas, much as Douglas Durst might like to.

Furthermore, a rendering The Observer unearthed back in December reveals this is potentially the shortest of the three commercial towers Related has planned. The rendering above, taken from that wild video, shows only two towers, though this is still a good deal shorter. The eastern flank of Hudson Yards could well surpass the 1,000-foot mark, possibly challenging Steve Roth and Tony Malkin‘s prides of place on the skyline. Our source preferred not to disclose details of the other towers, saying there is “flexibility” in the ultimate design.

Viewed in repose alongside the other buildings in the project in this rendering, it becomes clear that the residential buildings are pretty big, too. This really is like taking a huge chunk of midtown and and the Upper East Side, jamming it together, and plopping it down on two blocks of Hudson River real estate. Then again, 26 million square feet of development have to be wedged in somewhere.

If the shortest tower will be 300m then the tallest one could very well surpass 1WTC. That would be so cool

1WTC's roof? Or spire? Beating it's roof wouldn't be that hard considering the amount of space they need vertically in such a small plot. But beating it's spire is a tough call :p

Well, since I'm a huge roof height measurement proponent and an even huger spire measurement hater I would be statisfied if it would beat 1WTC's roof Besides, that would only bring this tower publicity. And publicity is good for tenant/resident harvesting. I personaly would make the tallest building at least 450m. That would make it the tallest building in the western hemisphere by roof height

Let's not jump the gun. Even if they did plan on building, a building taller than 1WTC. it would still take 5 to 8 years to complete.


Kanto your signature is borderline spam, can you tone it down a little.
