A nice fountain. I like when fountains remain accessible to people. There's nothing better than to put your feet into a fountain on a hot summer day

It is a good thing that so much attention is paid to the public space. I 'm sure it will look great.

That seems to be Related's intention. This plaza might be New York's Place de la Concorde (but without the traffic).

Also, the new monumental plaza will be in the direct line of site of the new Hudson Boulevard's terminus. Thus, it will be visually prominent like the Place de la Concorde or the Arch de Triomphe.

Shame the Coach tower got shortened so much, but I have to say I like it better that way in the context of the rest of the area. Assuming all else is built according to plan.

We don't know if it has been shortened or if so, by how much. Alternatively, we don't know if the north tower simply became taller.

At any rate, this will be a forest of supertalls.

Here's KPF's original:


Here's the latest:

The new high line rendering clearly depicts a shorter tower than in KPF's originals. Just compare it to the original rendering of the high line view. Recently there has also be news that the coach tower would be less than 50 floors. It's a safe bet to say that it was shortened.

That is unfortunate, but it makes sense because if I'm correct, Coach will not fully occupy this tower?

Hardly. Several of the residentials will exceed 300m.

I'm not sure about that plaza. Seems they put so many things on it. And the fountain seems oddly placed, there's just a simple, ordinary sidewalk separating it from the street, is that eleventh avenue? If that fountain is to become iconic, it needs space, plenty of it, around it. And it needs to command the space, the way they placed, you can't even appreciate it.
For example, they put there, next to the fountain, a drop-off bay,when you get off a cab, to get to the buildings you just walk by some ordinary sidewals, rounding the fountain and some greenery instead of traverse some grandiose public space.

I hope they'll release an updated height number for all the Hudson Yards towers. I'm dying to know how the heights changed

Yes, I also am eager.

From the looks of things, this will definitely be the most modern spot in NYC when completed. I would say it will look even more modern than the WTC complex as the designs, especially the residential towers, are less conservative and contain elements that you wouldn't usually see in a typical 'new york' style tower. For example, we see curved elements on some buildings, and of course the angles of the main towers. I especially like the facade of the tallest residential tower.

The only thing that we know is that the tallest tower presently is expected to be 1,300 feet and that the easter half of the project alone will have several 1,000+ foot towers.

In a few weeks, construction begins on New York’s largest development ever. Hudson Yards is handsome, ambitious, and potentially full of life. Should we care that it’s also a giant slab of private property? An exclusive preview.

By Justin DavidsonPublished Oct 7, 2012




On a Friday afternoon in September, a conclave of architects and real-estate executives gathers in a hotel conference room to look over plans for Manhattan’s largest remaining chunk of emptiness....



The idea is to create a verdant transition from the human scale to that of glass-and-steel giants. �In an open space next to 1,000-foot towers, our tallest tree is going to be like an ant next to a tall man’s shoe,� Woltz says....

Some more renderings of Hudson Yards (previous designs, may be changed as project progresses). I really hope that these grand spaces make it into the final edit.

Those grand spaces will be there. Ross expects to make money from the residential and high-end retail components. I wonder if this will be the site of Harvey Nichol's first American store. It's depicted in renderings on Related's website.

That is a great entrance. Just amazing how few columns and how big the glass panes are.

If the North Tower will be around 1,300 feet, it appears, by comparison, that the Coach (South) Tower is now about 800 feet. Obviously, this can change, but that appears to be the current state of things.



Also, the Ohm tower, the little building in the foreground, is about 350 feet tall, and the Coach Tower, which will be across the street from it, appears to be about 2.333 times taller than it.
