I believe that crane was for the platform. I also don't think construction for 35 HY has started.

But you could say that the completed platform/foundation for 35 HY is a big component of the tower and thereby a major achievement. The tower can now rise pretty quickly if they decide to start.

something like the gateway arch would be epic. I would imagine if it's a sculpture it would be something modern and not necessarily a human statue. the price tag isn't that crazy though, the statue of unity is twice as expensive and located far outside any city and in india. So whatever it is, it will probably not be breaking many records, but hopefully be still epic.

This whole complex is going to turn out great! Its concept seems similar to the original WTC complex which had a plaza with a sculpture in it surrounded by high and lowrises. Can't wait to see this complex in a few years when it is (partially) complete.

WTC plaza

Hudson Yards plaza


I wonder how expensive the sphere was, and how large this new sculpture will be.

Damn.. I cannot see pictures like these without feeling nostalgic...

I really like the render of that plaza.

My first time in New York was long after 9/11, so I unfortunately never saw the old complex. But from what I've heard, the original plaza was a pretty desolate, windswept place that few people visited, and where fewer still lingered. That's the problem with superblocks that are cut off from the surrounding street grid - no foot traffic. I'm hopeful this will turn out differently because the High Line will flow directly into the plaza. But the approach from any points east will be unpleasant (a big wall, essentially).

Not true at all. It was a lively and lovely place, full of people and kids playing. Only on Sundays it was desolate. 6 days of the week, it was full of people, hanging, eating, playing and just having a breezy good time. Who told you it was a desolate place?? The last time I was there a few days before its destruction, I took a group of elementary schools kids with me (volunteering), to show them a good time in the good old Manhattan. It was the Liveliest, most pleasant place by the fountain. Oh, I miss it so much. Those damn Muslim terrorists

What alternate dimension are you from? The plaza was almost empty unless there was a special event going on, which only happened every now and then. Otherwise it was a largely desolate waste of potential.

The reason why it happened to be lively and busy when you were there was because there was a concert going on during and before the attacks, which was housed right by 1 WTC in the plaza.

As an urban planning major, I can say that "super-blocks" such as the WTC are now very much out of favor. The WTC plaza was specifically given as an example of bad planning in one of my classes, and the current reconstruction program specifically states that they intend to re-open the streets and re-connect to the neighborhood.
