Yes, good idea and a better location than the racecourse or Flushing Meadows even though it would be far more expensive.

The racecourse idea only surfaced because Genting was going to pay for it. Sunnyside will happen; it's just a matter of when.

Top left of doughnut trees is location of that other render.

I think the highline is just a nice bonus, not a reason to build.
I think you're right.
The highline is definitely a bonus. Well integrated into the project.

Welcome to a Neighborhood: Hudson Yards Breaks Ground
BY SCOTT STIFFLER

Grandiose by nature, groundbreaking events are typified by optimistic, sometimes overconfident predictions of things to come — but at December 4’s public unveiling of the Hudson Yards development, dirt appeared to be the only thing being shoveled (despite a multitude of sweeping pronouncements by elected officials, union representatives and developers).
That depiction was no accident. Through images and words, the groundbreaking’s central theme was that of an emerging neighborhood — not simply a sprawling development project of meant to draw tourists or house businesses.

Located at the northeast corner of 10th Avenue and 30th Street — and set for occupancy in 2015 — the 1.7 million-square-foot, 47-story South Tower will be joined by a 2.4 million square feet North Tower (at the southwest corner of 10th Avenue and 33rd Street). The two structures will be linked by a retail complex.
Having purchased 740,000 square feet of space, the South Tower’s marquee resident was represented at the groundbreaking by Lew Frankfort, Chairman and CEO of high-end lifestyle accessory manufacturer Coach Inc.

Quinn thanked Coach not only for becoming the first major business to commit to the project, but for their current presence in the area. “Lou,” said Quinn in reference to the 1,600 nearby workers, “You hung in there, during the tough years on 34th Street.” Two more tenants (announced but not named at the December 4 event) have signed on to occupy the South Tower — bringing it to near-capacity.

The High Line was definitely something that reinvigorated the entire west side and as the High Line expanded so did development. Although Hudson Yards would've been developed eventually anyways, you can thank it for making it earlier.

I don't think it is possible to post videos from a page other than youtube, but I found the video there too so I'm uploading it

Some good information on the site, like the South tower has already started construction and the first occupants should move in the 2nd quarter of 2015. So the South tower will be finished before 2015. 2 years from now.

The North tower can't start construction before the rebuilding of the rail tracks is complete. That'll be in the fall of 2015, so expect the waiting for the completition of the main part of the complex to be long ........
