NEW YORK | 30 Hudson Yards - Manhattan Tower | 387m | 1268ft | 73 fl | U/C

Two major inaccuracies in that diagram: the roof height of One Vandy is closer to 396m/1300 ft., and the roof height of 30 Hudson Yards is 387m/1268 ft.

Haha yeah, but still a good looking diagram. It's a bummer, I think the height reductions make both towers look significantly stockier and less majestic. But they're still great projects however you slice it.

I believe they are storage sheds for the ferries, but I could be wrong.

The two taller structures house ventilation equipment for the Lincoln Tunnel. The steel frame structure under construction is a transformer/utility building for the Javits Center. Javits Center expansion is getting started (site demo underway) so this view will change dramatically in the next couple of years.
