the Hudson Yards website does a frustrating thing where it gives new renderings as tiny thumbnails for press releases, but you can't find those renderings in higher resolution anywhere else on the site.

When zoomed out, it looks like the top of 30 Hudson Yards is a slice of pizza, or at least it does on my phone.

This is pretty much true. The people who know about this either follow skyscraper construction or happen to live/work in the area. Otherwise, because there are always buildings going up in Manhattan (especially now), it's not really notable. There are a lot of people who do know about it, but it's less than one would think. Even 1 WTC only got a lot of publicity when it was nearly finished.

Some news about the Heatherwick sculpture in a Times story.

Quote:
His latest project for the Hudson Yards on the Far West Side of Manhattan may become a new city landmark; for now it remains shrouded in secrecy. Stephen M. Ross, chairman of Related Companies, a Hudson Yards developer, compared it to the Eiffel Tower in Fortune magazine two years ago, but one person who saw the design at that time described a concept much more grandiose than the developers’ original idea for a sculpture on a plaza fronting Hudson Yards’ vertical mall. Mr. Heatherwick envisioned a “vessel” that could occupy a large part of the plaza, shot through with dozens of stairways. Shaped like a chalice, it would rise higher than the adjacent, cavernous Culture Shed, the 100-foot-high international arts center also planned for Hudson Yards. Related and the co-developer, Oxford Properties, refuse to discuss Mr. Heatherwick’s design.

If it has not been trimmed back, Mr. Heatherwick’s vessel may prove to be an extraordinary work of public art — or some may take it as an overscaled theme-park attraction that litters yet another public space. Mr. Heatherwick offered no details, at the request of his clients, promising only “something that engages the city, not something you just stand back and look at.”

Because the developers bought the rights to build over the West Side rail yards, Mr. Heatherwick’s work, said to be in construction, does not require public review.

Damn, shaped like a chalice, "...envisioned a “vessel” that could occupy a large part of the plaza, shot through with dozens of stairways." made me think of something that would look like the Fortress of Solitude at first, which would have been awesome, but a chalice is something entirely different.

I came there today.
There are 3 massive mobile cranes on the north side.
Does anybody know what their job will be?

Is that the tower portion or the retail part? I believe that it's the retail portion but either way really good progress!!

Will 30HY be constructed out of steel? If so then it will certainly go up faster than 10HY.
