Related has said previously that they expect to begin construction on the 825 foot apartment building, and 950 foot mixed use building in the middle of next year as well, and with Oxford as a partner it's very likely that that timetable will be adhered to.

Hudson Yards To Break Ground
By C.J. Hughes
November 14, 2012



"After years of debate and delays, Hudson Yards—an ambitious plan to create a new mixed-use neighborhood from scratch over railroad tracks on Manhattan’s west side—is finally breaking ground. Excavations for the first office tower on the site, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), which also created the master plan, will begin by the first week of December, according to a source at the Related Companies, its co-developer with Oxford Properties Group...

... The first tower, a 46-story, 1.7 million-square-foot building, with the luxury apparel company Coach as anchor tenant, will be at the far southeastern corner of the 26-acre Hudson Yards site. Construction of the $1 billion glass tower, which slopes westward before tapering to a point, is to be completed by 2015. Studios Architecture has designed the interiors for Coach; an entrance of the building will overhang a portion of the High Line. The entire development will include 14 acres of public open space and parks.

In addition to the Coach tower, KPF is designing a 1,300-foot high-rise. Connecting the two will be a five-story retail podium by Elkus Manfredi Architects, facing a landscaped plaza by Nelson Byrd Woltz. Also planned for the first phase: a 950-foot mixed-use tower with a hotel, condos, and shops, by SOM. Plus, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, along with the Rockwell Group, are designing a “culture shed,” a five-story moveable structure that abuts an 825-foot apartment tower that the team has also designed. The shed can roll out, like a trundle bed, to create a 55,000-square-foot performance and exhibition space.

A half-dozen structures, not yet designed, are planned for a second phase on the western side of the site. The total project, whose cost is $15 billion, isn’t expected to be completed for a decade. “This has to be the most exciting thing I’ve ever worked on,” says Bill Pedersen, 74, the lead design architect and a KPF founder..."

4th is the 46 story Coach Tower (876 ft). Nothing to be disconcerted about though, NYC still has at least 12 supertalls in the works along with the 4 that already exist.

Maybe it's just the height without the crown. Anyway, those height figures constantly change, especially for the HY Project.

There are rumors that the North Tower should have the highest occupied floor in the city, which would suggest that we can except a height increase in the future, though that is just a rumor.

That would make it way taller than 432 Park, if true.

A building should only qualify as a supertall if it is 1000ft tall (not 300m). The beight must be measured to the top of the roof. Spires and antennas are not considered when measuring building heights.

Your list just got a whole lot smaller.

If this will be taller than 1WTC I'll start really loving this building even though it looks a bit fat from some angles.

He specifically refers to "the new building on Park" when, in the video, he states that the north tower will have the highest occupied space in the city.

No. The metric system is superior and is replacing feet, yards and others.

Exactly what I was going to post, that was the key to what he said. If that is the case i am excited to see what the final height is going to end up at. Seems like we will have yet another "new tallest". Gotta wonder if 225 West 57th will then attempt to one up it again .

One can hope.
