Related’s path to prominence is paved with political negotiations

Quote:
Thanks to its expertise in negotiating complex agreements with the city and its long-term thought process, Related Companies has become the most prominent developer in the city, according to Crain’s, boasting forthcoming mega-developments at Hudson Yards and Willets Point, among others.

Because Chairman Stephen Ross got his start developing affordable housing, he became adept at striking deals with the city that ensure favorable terms for both sides, Crain’s said. For example, realizing Mayor Bloomberg’s desperation to develop something at Willets Point, the firm managed to work out a deal to develop the site without asking for additional subsidies by getting permission to build retail first. Related convinced the city that the retail would help build the land’s value and make housing development more feasible. Related made similar tweaks to Tishman Speyer’s $1 billion plan at Hudson Yards before taking it over.

“What makes them unique is they have a tremendous propensity to take on non-as-of-right projects and to engage with government in a collaborative way,”Two Trees Management’s Jed Walentas said.

Crain’s noted that the firm isn’t only successful on these massive projects, but it has also shown a propensity for brining retail to under-the-radar outerborough sites, including East New York. It’s also purchased stakes in growing entities, such as Equinox and Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events. But for all these success, there have been some challenges, including the firm’s continued attempts to bring Walmart to the city.

It really does not look almost 400m and 300m in this rendering...Just look at the ESB behind bearing in mind where the concrete ends on the ESB is just over 300m

The ESB is quite a distance from the HY, and this accounts for the perceptions that you note.

There are two big towers right? , the north tower which is 393 meters, then the south tower, but which is the height of the south tower, and also, is there another 900 feet - tall tower in the project?

I don't think...it must be the opposite. Nearer buildings seem to be taller. HY is nearer than ESB in that rendering, plus HY is taller than ESB as a matter of fact. So HY must be almost 3 times taller than ESB from that perspective. I suppose renderings are wrong, aren't they?

They look right to me? I think you have this perspective thing around the wrong way?

The render is like when the background is close.

Great gif !! That render was taken with a small angle of view, or what in the real world would be some huge lens!

Oh wow indeed The way midtown appears to shape up in this picture is so nice! Building heights arranged in a bowl shape parameter around ESB.

Have there been changes to the construction site in the last 2.5 months? Since this is in prep status.
