Someone ought to knock you down instead for having such an awful taste in architecture.

Stop being petulant! Old buildings were knocked down in that location already.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but looking at the photos posted, is there no concrete core in this building's construction? Pretty wild to see a supertall without one!

I think this might help you:

The foundations and steel columns positions were dictated by the "available" spots between the tracks (with steel mega-trusses spanning over the tracks with a diaphragm at the platform level) which are different from their "final position" on the higher floors of the buildings (for architectural reasons). A lot of these columns are therefore "slopped" between levels 1-10, which would have been more difficult to achieve with concrete (for instance it would have required post-tensioned beams where the inclination of the columns change). This is why a steel solution with braced frames to ensure the lateral stability works better for that particular building.

There was no such issue with tower C since the core and columns could remain vertical from the foundation to the top of the building.

I wonder if this was a union thing again. They wanted 15 Hudson Yards to be steel or still/concrete but it turned into a fully reinforced concrete building after union negotiations failed. And for some reasons it was painfully slow.
As far as a concrete core for 30 HY, they could have buildt long shear walls between the rails when hitting the ground and as far as sloping columns - look at 53W53...It's shooting up at a neckbreaking speed and every single column is sloped at a different angle.

It will not take long before those old brick buildings are replaced with something better.
Hopefully the world will be completely wipe-clean and shiny sometime in the near future

Seriously, this is becoming childish. If you are interested in old brick buildings there are hundreds of thousand of them within New York city for your so called AESTHETIC architectural taste.

However, I don't know why my post is being misinterpreted when it is very clear I want the brick buildings in THAT location to be knocked down because they no longer fit. Please, read between the lines and don't just follow the bandwagon with misinformation.

While Manhattan is literally PACKED with brick buildings, this is one of the few areas where Manhattan can get futuristic skyscrapers. While a mix of old and new could be nice, I still don´t get why people are complaining about a few buildings getting knocked down at the Hudson Yards area. It makes no sense at all.

It's funny that you say that. Many are actually pretty new (see link below), they just keep building the old design :-)

The whole Hudson Yards or just 30 HY? Stephen Ross has said in an interview, that at peak time up to 4500 workers are working on the phase 1.
