Green roofs, and green spaces are very important in any city.

NEW YORK | One Hudson Yards | 267m | 877ft | 56 fl | Pro

After a sneak peek of this stalled project over a year ago, we're finally getting a full-on look (read: tons of renderings) at Extell's planned office tower for the Hudson Yards district on the far West Side. Called One Hudson Yards, Extell's Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed tower has a facade defined by grids of diamond shapes; the archibabble = a "diagrid." Lest it be boring, the plan completely defies the laws of symmetry by lopping off the northeast corner of the top, which faces Midtown. The lobby level has a wavy metallic canopy that swoops around the perimeter.

By the numbers, we're looking at 1,750,000 square feet of office space in a 56-story, 877-foot-tall structure. Located on Eleventh Avenue between 33rd and 34th streets, we've yet to figure out the building's exact address, but we know that it'll sit right on top of the 7 train extension, next to the planned Hudson Park, and just east of the curved northern tip of the High Line.

Manhattan: Agreement on West Side Medical Tower

Published: August 1, 2007

Two New York developers have signed an agreement to build a 1.2 million-square-foot office tower on the Far West Side that would serve as a hub for manufacturers of devices, diagnostics, computer systems and other equipment for the medical industry.

The developers — Gary Barnett, the chief executive of the Extell Development Corporation, and Israel Green — said they planned to begin construction in early 2009. The tower would rise at 11th Avenue and 34th Street, on a site that is now home to the Copacabana nightclub.

Mr. Green has spent five years developing the concept and pursuing a Manhattan location. He said it was an opportunity for New York City to become the principal center for the $260 billion global market for medical devices and diagnostics. The project may have to wait until the city completes part of an extension of the No. 7 subway line, which passes beneath the site.

FORMER NIGHTCLUB TO BE A CUTTING-EDGE MEDICAL SHOWROOM



August 1, 2007 -- THE former Copacabana site at the southeast corner of 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue is morphing into an approximately 1.5 million-square-foot skyscraper that could become the home of the World Product Centre, a showroom that will feature the latest in high-tech medical equipment.

WPC is the brainchild of Israel Green, who has just signed a letter of intent with Gary Barnett for a "full 1 million square feet," which will be about 70 percent of this new Extell Development project.

The 45- to 50-story building is being designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox with WPC innards by FXFowle Architects.

Green is still evaluating the costs of environmentally friendly construction but laughed, "It will make me happier because my name is Green."

Already, Green has $100 million from Hewlett-Packard to install the latest devices into what will become a sales and educational center for diagnostics, equipment and supporting systems tied to the medical field.

John Powers of CB Richard Ellis worked with Green on finding a location but didn't return a call for comment.

The WPC Web site has to be updated. It still shows the FXFowle-designed SJP Properties office tower at 11 Times Square as its future home.

Green explained that L-shaped building didn't work for his needs. The new one would be ready in 2012.

I know, there's not even one skyscraper being built in all of the US.


--------------------------------------------------------------------

This skyscraper is called the WPC. "World Product Center"
They want to start building it in 2009, but I think the site needs some extra time to be preped.
I already love it.

It is actually not in a recession, nor was it in one last quarter, so joke or not, please get your facts straight. In fact, in some sectors, the economy saw unprecedented growth.


This is another great tower for New York, and though admittedly I have been following the Chicago boom a little closer, I am really glad to see so many ambitious projects coming up in New York. If all comes to pass, the New York skyline will be making some serious gains in the following years.

Gorgeous. So nice to see New York has upped its game with strikingly new skyscrapers. It has kinda taken the back seat to Dubai, Chinese cities and London. Well done with this one

Recesion? so? a lot of skyscrapers, even Empire State Building was built in the 1929 Great Depresion period.

This recesion is a pice of cake compared to the 1929 Great Depresion.
