They got a tenant for the lower tower, so I guess they will start pretty soon. Should be really interesting later this year and beyond.

Is it possible to get up on the High Line tracks? If not, who knows when will be open for public? This 3rd part is under construction now, right? Nice spot for taking pictures..

Yeah you can the High Line currently terminates basically at the foot of the tower that's under prep work, and I imagine the final phase will be built along with the Western half of the Hudson Yards development Wiki:

I was thinking of that, but it's blocked over, and the parts that I can go on curve away from that spot anyway. This picture I had taken a month ago on the high line shows the spot. The lower tower is to be set on the right where those cars were parked at. Now it's covered up and there's a giant hole there.

The smaller tower is basically already in preparation... another supertall underway for NYC!

The larger tower may start later this year or next depending on Tenants.


The tower also has 54 floors (51 is top office and 3 mechanical on top)

The larger 68 (65 is top office and 3 mechanical floors above)

The larger tower depends more on the construction of the platform. The shorter tower is the easiest one to build in the entire complex because it is the only one that does not sit above existing train tracks.

Hope that can be solved easily, it would be a terrible shame if the larger did not get built.

Fortunately the High Line is next to the spot from where you van make photos, because there are so many fences around the site.

?? The larger tower doesn't depend on them figuring out how to build the platform, it's been known for a long time how Related is going to build the platform. The only thing that is keeping the taller tower from being built is a tenant.

There are some amazing photos on Related's brochure which show the stunning fountain and central plaza. Does anyone know how to copy a PDF?
