How likely is this proposal? Can it even take off? Is it even possible to find enough tenants?

it's imminent. Site preparation is underway. The south tower will begin construction this fall, anchored by Coach. The North Tower is competing with the world trade center site for anchor tenants.

Why do they always build the smaller buildings first? If im correct it is because the smaller building I cheaper, but If they expect more tenants and they expect to build the north tower anyways why not start with the bigger?

The bigger tower is being built second because it's being built over an active train yard, so Related has to build a canopy over the yards to build the tower on top of. While smaller tower doesn't require a canopy and will be built like any other building.

The entire Hudson Yards will not be complete by 2020 but hopefully I'm wrong.

it's a huge project so you're probably correct. However they'll be finished with phase 1 by then, which has all of the supertalls we've seen.

It so big! Almost seems unrealistic to me that they would have the money to fund something that size! Wow! That could be its own city! How much will this whole site cost??

Hudson Yards: NY's urban town within a city

By Verena Dobnik

NEW YORK (AP) — New York didn't let its loss of the 2012 Olympics keep the city from moving on to another venture: building up the largest undeveloped parcel in Manhattan.

The old Hudson rail yards on Manhattan's West Side might have become the Olympic stadium if the city had won the summer games when it bid on them years ago. Instead, a $15 billion small city within a city will soon start rising on the 26 acres of land by the Hudson River, with the construction on the first building set for this year. Eventually, Hudson Yards is expected to dramatically change New York's skyline. The cluster of commercial and residential high-rises is flanked by parkland, a cultural center, restaurants, shops, a hotel and a school, according to the latest renderings obtained by The Associated Press.

The main developer, Stephen Ross, told the AP that groundbreaking is planned sometime in October for the 12 million square feet of real estate space — New York's most ambitious private construction since Rockefeller Center was built in the 1930s amid the Great Depression. Some have dubbed the neighborhood "Manhattan's final frontier." Bounded by 10th and 12th avenues and West 30th and 33rd streets, it is Manhattan's largest tract of land still available for major development, followed by the World Trade Center being rebuilt downtown a decade after the terrorist attack. Surrounding the rail storage yards in this once bleak industrial area were potholed roads leading to car and horse-drawn carriage garages, warehouses, low-rent brownstones, cheap delis and strip clubs.

Hudson Yards' first building, set to open in 2015, is a $1.3 billion, 46-floor tower — nearly half of it to be occupied by the Coach luxury leather goods manufacturer. Its glass atrium will stand alongside the High Line, a mile-long, elevated public greenway transformed from a defunct freight railway weaving through the artsy Chelsea neighborhood to the south. This inaugural tower is part of a master plan designed by the Manhattan architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, which has produced the tallest towers in China, Korea, Hong Kong, France and Great Britain.

Still, in New York, "to build these very large structures on top of the tracks is a huge challenge," says the firm's co-founder, architect Bill Pedersen. "It's like dental work, threading through down below." An $800,000,000 platform will cover the field of open tracks that will continue to be used by the Long Island Rail Road, stretching under the nearby Pennsylvania Station transport hub linked by Amtrak to other parts of the country. The load-bearing main pillars of the first tower will be firmly planted into the ground, not on the platform.

Ross told the AP that the chosen architect for another high-rise along central, tree-lined Hudson Park and Boulevard is David Childs, who designed New York's tallest building — One World Trade Center, to be occupied by 2014 "They're creating a whole new landscape, a whole new district of New York City," says Bob Yaro, president of the not-for-profit Regional Plan Association think tank. "It will ensure that as the economy recovers, New York will have places for new business."

46 floors, hope it doesn't have a height change.

There have been a few different floor counts thrown around by the media, Bloomberg said it was 51. Related's website still has the first tower at the 54 floors 1017 feet, so I wouldn't sweat it.

The official website and cutaway diagrams say 59 (56 for the old one)

Maybe 46 actual office floors? Who knows

59 is much more suitable for a 1017 foot tower

Coach tower financing faces deadline
By Friday lenders must submit proposals to Related Cos. to finance construction of its 46-story, 1.7 million-square-foot tower for Coach on the West Side.

inShare.2 3.Banks eager to lend Related Cos. and its partner between $300 million and $400 million for the construction of the first tower at the developer's massive Hudson Yards project west of Penn Station must have their proposals in by the end of the week, sources familiar with the transaction said.

Bank of America Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Wells Fargo & Co. are among the banks Related approached about lending money for construction of the 1.7 million-square-foot, 46-story tower at West 30th Street and 10th Avenue that will stand next to the northern end of the High Line.

Coach Inc. agreed to become the anchor tenant there late last year and will put up about $500 million towards construction of the tower where it will own its 750,000-square-foot office. Related and its partner, Canada's Oxford Properties Group, will put in over $300 million. The tower is slated to be competed by 2015.

Even as it lines up financing, Manhattan-based Related is continuing to seek additional tenants for the Coach tower as well as for others that it plans for the 26-acre site over the rail yards, which is bounded by 10th and 12th avenues and West 30th and West 33rd streets. The building will be the first component of the more than 13 million square feet planned for the 26-acre site, which will include three office towers, a hotel, nine apartment buildings, a cultural center, a school and parkland. The $15 billion project could take as long as 15 years to complete.

However, Related has repeatedly said it won't go ahead and build the $1.6 billion platform over the rail yards until it secures a major office tenant. The Coach tower can go ahead because it is on solid ground

A Coach spokeswoman didn't return a call seeking comment while a Related spokeswoman said in a statement: "We have received significant interest from our lending relationships and are excited to start construction on the Hudson Yards this fall."

Yes. Hopefully, Related will line up Time Warner, Credit Suisse, or Newscorp for the North Tower, and it can rise simultaneously with the Coach Tower. Presumably, Related will start the 300m+ condo/hotel when the North Tower rises too. Then, there will be three 300m+ towers rising on this site.
