That square is not even what will be built. Ross has stated in the media (e.g., the NY Mag article) that he will commission a classical fountain which, in his words, will be NY's Trevi Fountain. That plaza rendering is a mere "place holder."That square is fantastic. I hope this will get much attention to the west side.
I think we're just starting to see the domino effect, myself and others predicted would happen. The passing of the election certainly helped, but the looming fiscal cliff is probably overshadowing the passing of the election. Again, mainly I think it's just that there are a lot of companies out there looking for new space, and only so much new space available, especially at this price point.That's another thing. Is it just my perception or are we beginning to see the predicted post-election leasing frenzy? What's happening here can only be good news for other projects in the city, considering how many big firms are still out there looking for office space.
Just wait untill all the other nearby stuff gets going and even this will seem like a small piece in the West Manhattan puzzle.
With two words: no words!
The city swapped a sports arena for a center of culture, recreation and commerce. (Plus a supertall with an observation deck!) A fair trade I think.Wish one of these buildings was a stadium for the NY Jets.
But, with that said... what a great addition to a great city.
I added Sherwood, Manhattan West, and Girasole's old renders. (beefed them up in terms of height too)Just wait untill all the other nearby stuff gets going and even this will seem like a small piece in the West Manhattan puzzle.
Girasole - 1050ft-+1400ft
Manhattan West - (configuration unknown, but the site has 5,6MSF of air rights)
Sherwood Equities tower - +1000ft
One Hudson Yards - +1000ft
360 10th Avenue - 800ft-+900ft
514 11th Avenue - +800ft
450 Hudson Boulevard - ~800ft
And a whole bunch of other stuff that we don't know about yet like 33rd and 10th avenue, which has the most generous zoning in the entire area and could yield another +1500ft tower for New York in addition to 225 W57th.
Now that I think of it, it would be awesome if somebody added all of that to this rendering to get an idea of what this area will be like when the year is 2022.
I did say "one of those buildings"... though a stadium takes up far more space than a skyscraper. What's done is done. Can't wait to see this built. I can see the NYC skyline from my bedroom window here in Rutherford, NJ. I'll get a good look of this project considering it's location on the Hudson River.The city swapped a sports arena for a center of culture, recreation and commerce. (Plus a supertall with an observation deck!) A fair trade I think.
good job, looks amazing. I hope that a supertall will in fact come out of Manhattan West and that One Hudson Yards will be a supertall. As predicted, the West side is going to be a forest of massive towers.I added Sherwood, Manhattan West, and Girasole's old renders. (beefed them up in terms of height too)
