with the crazy good deal that they scored with the yards, the timeframe for the platform over the yards, the carrying costs they're likely looking at for this site (not including the coach building, which will be a money maker for years with all the towers going up around it), and the competition in the area (at least 2 non-related office towers along hudson + the 3 manhattan west towers), it makes a lot of sense to push this site before the north tower on the yards site. which is something i'd quite like, since the volume of office space built out in the far west side could well delay the demolition of some midtown east beauties by possibly a decade or more, along with potentially getting the 7 looped down to penn station.
