Here are the more interesting bits about it:

The Internet firm has been in discussions with several landlords about leasing at much as 600,000 square feet in Manhattan—about half the size of the Chrysler Building. A space that large would represent a roughly 80% expansion for the company, which first established a small outpost in New York in 2000.

...

The expansion options include 450 West 33rd St., a bulky 16-story building on 10th Avenue that used to house the New York Daily News, and the St. John's Terminal Building, a former freight rail terminal at 550 Washington St. by the West Side Highway in the West Village, people said. The company doesn't appear to be close to making a decision, and it is unlikely all of it would be occupied at once. Many tech companies have started leasing more space than they need in anticipation of growth.

....

If Google ultimately leases multiple hundreds of thousands of additional square feet, it would be one of the largest corporate expansions in New York in years. A company typically puts about 500 employees in every 100,000 square feet it leases.

Looks like Brookfield isn't what they are looking for in a building. 600,000 square feet and they want a 16-story building? Pennypinchers!

Law Firm Skadden Arps heading to the Hudson Yards??
http://nypost.com/2014/04/23/eataly-...-trade-center/

Quote:
Legal behemoth Skadden Arps, which was a pioneering tenant at the Durst Organization’s 4 Times Square, is looking to another game-changing neighborhood.

Despite efforts to lure it downtown, the law firm wants to stay in Midtown, sources said. The hunt for space, handled by Peter Riguardi and Ken Siegal of JLL, has led it to the upcoming Hudson Yards area.

While The Post’s Steve Cuozzo has previously reported on Skadden’s search, we hear the team is focusing on 3 Hudson Boulevard and Manhattan West.

In both cases, Skadden would become the anchor tenant with 550,000 to 600,000 square feet. Of that total, 50,000 square feet is for back-office functions that could be moved to a lower-priced alternative nearby.

Manhattan West is a multi-tower project along Ninth Avenue between 30th and 33rd streets being developed by Brookfield Properties with leasing through Cushman & Wakefield. The first 67-story tower will have 2 million square feet.

C&W has been offering 450 W. 33rd St., which will get new floor-to-ceiling greenhouse-like windows, as the back-office alternative.

Hudson Boulevard is a 1.89 million-square-foot tower proposed by Joseph Moinian at the northeast corner of Eleventh Avenue and 34th Street being leased through Avison Young.

The law firm is said to be tired of Times Square, where it moved before it became gridlocked with pedestrians. Even if Skadden remained, the firm faced a disruptive restacking to get freshened and technologically updated office space.

Durst is also beginning to ask $80 to $90 per square foot, and Skadden believes it can get a better deal to anchor a new building and get early leasing lower taxes, just as they did when they signed their 20-year lease in 1996. That lease does not end until May 2020 but requires a 24-month notice to renew for five years.
This is a scenario where 450 West 33rd comes into play for a prospective tenant ideally for Brookfiled Manhattan West project.

A company such as Skadden would lease 600k sf in a new tower and could lease the remaining 50k sf at 450W33rd street for some savings.

How are the sections brought to the site? Is it by train or truck? I saw three of these things headed north on rt 1 here near New Brunswick. I doubt they were for an overpass or something since they are so tall and they looked just like these.

City okays Manhattan West zoning changes
http://www.rew-online.com/2014/04/30...oning-changes/

Quote:
Brookfield Office Properties Inc. announced that the New York City Council approved the zoning changes proposed for Manhattan West, the mixed-use community the company is building in the Hudson Yards district.

The development will expand its open space from one acre to two acres, doubling in its original size. Yesterday’s (Tuesday) vote was the final step, as the plan has already been approved by the Community Board 4, City Planning Commission, City Council Zoning & Franchises Subcommittee, Land Use Committee and the full City Council.

Designed by Field Operations, the architects behind the High Line, Manhattan West’s open area will feature an arts and events space and will ultimately create a pedestrian-friendly public park for future office tenants, visitors and residents of Manhattan West. In addition, the adjacent office building at 450 West 33rd Street, now known as Five Manhattan West, is undergoing a modernization program that includes exterior re-cladding and interior renovation.

City Councilman Corey Johnson, who represents Manhattan West’s neighborhood said, “I was thrilled to be able to support the Brookfield text amendment that the Council voted to approve unanimously earlier today. This project brings two acres of vibrant open space that is sorely needed to this community, which will include world-class free and public arts and events programming by Brookfield.”

“These new changes will make this a better project with more open space and amenities that the entire community can enjoy. This is exactly the kind of economic development that we need in the city. A project that creates jobs, builds a beautiful neighborhood and improves neighboring communities,” said Councilman David G. Greenfield, Chair, Land Use Committee, New York City Council.

The five-acre Manhattan West campus will include two new premium-grade office towers, a luxury residential tower, a boutique five-star hotel, retail and a two-acre park. Located steps away from the High Line, it also will feature health and fitness facilities, rooftop gardens and multiple restaurants and cafes.

The $4.5-billion Manhattan West project will feature stunning views of the city and the Hudson River, located one block west of Penn Station and across the street from the new Moynihan Station.

Could more open space possibly squeeze one of the towers to being taller?

Interesting, I see what it looks like a stock price at the base of the building as if the glass will have OLED technology.

I'm with you. These plazas as currently pictured make me less than ecstatic from an urban planning/density standpoint.

For posterity's sake, I snapped a photo of the MW site yesterday. The completed fourth span is sitting atop the first or second span, with a bunch of crap piled on top of it. It's depressing.

those girders are on top of the beam to try and take camber out of it. when they tension the ties, it puts camber in the precast. they used to use other precast sections to do this. I think there are photos of it.

This makes sense, although I have never seen a precast segmwntal bridge where this has been done. Could the fact that the segments have been in storage for a year have anything to do with it? I thought the girders were from the temporary platform.

In 4 months, they have placed only 3 spans. This is not good progress.

Thanks, nice looking.

But the reality of the constructed (the residential tower on 30th) or under-construction buildings (10 HY) west of 450 W 33rd will definitely impact the view looking towards Jersey/Weehawken...

Will that be publicly accessible or just for a priceless restaurant?

It should be publicly accessible. The plan is for the plaza between the MW towers to extend over Dyer Ave, and flow directly into the Breezeway. There will be a small landing on the southwest corner of 450 W 33rd St and a staircase down to street level. At least in theory.

agree, they really should. It would really tie up everything with Manhattan West being the gateway to the Hudson Yards connecting through Frank McCourts 360 10th and finally to the High Line Spur without ever going down to street level.

Here's another view of the Breezeway @ 5 Manhattan West
