I walked passed this site today right near my home. I'm telling you, it is HUGE but empty. I can imagine looking out my window every day in 3 years or so to see how the construction is going.

Why no pictures then?


Seriously, photos of the site would be very welcome. I'm especially interested in the buildings that are intended to be torn down.

the site is a rail yard, so no buildings need to be torn down.

What's being torn down are hideous one story warehouses. They look like temporary structures that were just sort of left there. Real real bad.

Edit: econ, the first, shorter tower is being built on firm ground on the south west corner of the site, on the corner of 30th and 10th basically unless I'm horribly mistaken which is a possibility.

I did not take any photos because there's not much to see, it's a 20 ft giant hole that spands at a 6 block radius in the deserted place in Manhattan with a bunch of trains parked out. If ya'll want, I'll go take some.

I finally got over there to the site after school. Here are some random pics from my smartphone...











Like I said there is not much to see, but the area is very vast and huge, spanning about total 6 blocks.
The last photos some of you may remember from the render, which showed the highline leading up to the towers.
Directly behind the black slanting building is right where the Brookfield towers want to be built which because these two projects are 2 blocks away from each other I have also taken pictures of.

Ah thanks! Now people can see that nothing of any sort of significance of any sort will be demolished for this project. This is basically building an entire new neighborhood from the ground up.

Construction Firm Named for Hudson Yards Development
January 17, 2012 4:40pm | By Mathew Katz, DNAinfo Reporter/Producer


Quote:
HELL'S KITCHEN — The long-delayed rehab of the Far West Side took another step forward on Tuesday when the developer behind Hudson Yards named a contractor for the 26-acre project.
The Related Companies and Oxford Properties, which are partners in the massive project, tapped California-based Tutor Perini Corporation as contractor for Hudson Yards. Tishman Construction will work as building partner on the project.
Hudson Yards, a massive project to build towering office and residential buildings over what's now the West Side Rail Yards, was kick-started in November when luxury handbag maker Coach announced it would anchor the development's first building. Construction on that building, at the southeast corner of the rail yard, is set to begin in mid-2012.
Related has also retained Tutor Perini for a new residential tower just south of the Hudson Yards project, at West 30th Street and 10th Avenue.
“Tutor Perini is a world-class contractor offering decades of experience and an exemplary track record with complex, large-scale developments,” Jay Cross, president of the Hudson Yards project, said in a statement.
Tutor Perini is one of the largest general contractors in the country, and has worked on runway reconstruction at JFK Airport, the Airtrain Terminal at Jamaica Station, and the Greenwich Street Corridor Project at the World Trade Center.
Tishman is currently managing the construction of One World Trade Center.
Hudson Yards will offer over 13 million square feet of commercial and residential space if it's completed to plan. Currently, only construction of the first building has been confirmed and there's no final completion date set for the overall project.
Numerous other developers are champing at the bit to develop skyscrapers nearby, with the end goal to develop a brand-new neighborhood on the Far West Side.

Great news but I'm a bit puzzled, will preparations begin in mid 2012 or construction?
