Hudson Yards shovel-ready

Quote:
In a critical breakthrough for Hudson Yards, the MTA board is expected tomorrow to let Related Companies start $50 million of preliminary work on its Coach headquarters tower before the developer closes on its 99-year lease of the 26-acre site from the agency.

In exchange, Related will give up its right to defer closing until three citywide economic “triggers” have been met. The company founded by Stephen M. Ross also will commit for the first time to a firm closing date: June 1, 2013, although both Related and the MTA say it will likely occur sooner and possibly by this Dec. 31.

Hey folks, I just visited the SSP diagrams and they say that the Coach Tower is already under construction, is this true?

More NB permits were filed yesterday. As per the zoning diagram, the Coach Tower is 879'3" at the top.

Hudson Yards North Office Tower- 1,337 ft
Equinox Tower- 950 ft
Hudson Yards South Office Tower- 880 ft
Hudson Yards Residential Tower- 825 ft

We are basically getting an Empire State, a Citigroup, a Trump World, and a MetLife on one tiny sliver of land.

NY is king!

^

That height of roughly 950 from this article, is presumably without any mechanical floors or crown. But Related has tinkered with heights continuously so who knows.

The observation deck looks cool.

Can Architects Create A New Neighborhood Of Skyscrapers In New York?
Hudson Yards, a series of buildings to be built over the rail yards on Manhattan’s West Side, will add
a new neighborhood with the population of downtown Detroit to the Big Apple. How do you create a city within a city?








Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates



Quote:
While thousands of New Yorkers struggle to rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, a much larger project is poised to begin construction on a new neighborhood from scratch on the city’s west side. The Manhattan-based developer The Related Companies expects to break ground this month on Hudson Yards, the $15 billion city-within-a-city built atop a platform over the eponymous rail yards. Cities built from scratch have been popping up in Asia, but what will happen to New York when it adds an entire new high-rise city into an already thriving metropolis?

We will soon find out. The mega-project reportedly received its first $400 million of financing last month to cover phase one of what will eventually include 12 million square feet of offices, condos, hotels and retail enfolded into a quartet of towers--the tallest of which will rise higher than the Empire State Building. Picture Columbus Circle’s Time Warner Center (another Related project) scaled up and re-conceived in Rockefeller Center’s image.

Related chairman Stephen Ross has drafted a passel of architects to bring the projection to fruition, including Elizabeth Diller of starchitects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the consummate showman David Rockwell, and Skidmore Owings and Merrill partner David Childs, who designed One World Trade Center. But the task of master planning a neighborhood from scratch has fallen to the less flashy firm of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, best known as the builder of such “supertall” skyscrapers as Shanghai’s 1,614-ft. World Financial Center or Hong Kong’s 1,588-ft. International Commerce Center.

Hudson Yards may shock New Yorkers with its instant addition of a neighborhood the size of downtown Detroit to the north end of the Highline, but this is exactly what KPF--among legions of other western architects have been doing in Asia for years. “This isn’t really a supertall,” KPF co-founder Bill Pedersen said while glancing at a model of the project in his office; Manhattan’s skyline has some catching-up to do. While Pedersen insists the plan for Hudson Yards “is pure New York,” i.e. not a New York version of the Korean city New Songdo, the project bears unmistakable traces of the firm’s decade-long building spree abroad.

Of the two towers designed by KPF, one will host the headquarters of Coach (with an assist from creative director Reed Krakoff), while the taller will boast a cantilevered observation deck, hotel, and other amenities at the top reminiscent of the firm’s work at the World Financial Center. Shanghai’s tallest skyscraper contains a Park Hyatt (formerly the world’s highest hotel) and an observation deck running the length of the “can opener,” including vertiginous glass panels in the floor on which visitors are invited to jump. (They’re several feet thick.)

Both towers at Hudson Yards will be clad in the shingled surface Pedersen first deployed at the International Commerce Center in Kowloon two years ago. “We felt it would give a lesser interior reflection, which it does to a certain degree,” Pedersen said. “More important, it has remarkable ability to catch light in a way that no other glass building does.”

That Observation Deck is Shangai's World Financial Center's, the "bottle opener"

It appears that Related is updating its on-line brochure for the HY. This is all that appears on its website now.

By the way, since the Coach Tower is 879 feet, it seems that the smaller of the two residentials is at least that tall too.

Hardhats to begin construction of Hudson Yards project on Tuesday

City's largest privately-funded project since Rockefeller Center to develop site on West Side

BY PETE DONOHUE / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2012, 10:03 PM

"After nearly a decade in the making, construction workers will finally break ground Tuesday on the Hudson Yards project, the city’s largest privately-funded development project since Rockefeller Center, sources said.

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Tuesday morning at the 26-acre site, expected to be anchored by a tower that will soar higher than the Empire State Building..."

"...The six-tower development will be built atop two $750 million platforms that will serve as foundations over the existing rail yards. The site will house a public school, 5,000 apartments with affordable housing, restaurants and movie theatres, a five-star hotel, and 14 acres of public space. An extension of the 7 train will be accessible from the center of the project..."

It looks roughly the same in height. The other still could be a supertall?

The Equinoxe Tower, which will have condos, a hotel, and offices will be a super-tall. The other residential tower in phase 1 will be around 260m tall.

Considering the extraordinary number of very large projects and towers planned or under construction, I'd love to catch up on the general state of NYC real estate. Perhaps you could direct me to a source for that sort of information, RobetWalpole. I'd be much obliged.

This might be a stupid question, but I'd like to ask anyway, what exactly is this ground breaking? Is it the start of preparations or already the start of construction?

I agree, and it's only Phase 1. Moreover, the entire vicinity will be transformed over the next 20 years. In 20 years, this probably will be the 4th biggest American office district after Midtown, Chicago, and Wall Street.

prep start. As the name says, they start to dig, braking the flat ground surface.
