NEW YORK | Hudson Square Redevelopment

Quote:
The city is ready to kick off construction on the controversial Tower o' Garbage in Hudson Square (the temporary restraining order has been lifted), and the first step is to remove a row of decades-old trees on Washington Street later this month. Guess what? Local residents are angry about it. "These are beautiful, majestic trees that should be preserved," one non-celebrity said. There are plans to plant 26 new trees around the garbage truck garage when it's finished.

So, what's going on here? Are those several different renderings? Is one old, one new? Let's get some information here. This seemed very rushed because the title is messy. And what's the source of the quote from?

NY YIMBY:

Construction Update: Hudson Square Garbage Garage
BY: NIKOLAI FEDAK ON DECEMBER 4TH 2013 AT 6:00 AM

Quote:
The Department of Sanitation’s new garbage garage in Hudson Square is nearing completion, concluding a saga that began in the 2000s with fierce neighborhood opposition. The structure spans five floors and comprises 340,000 square feet of space, and the builder is De Matteis, which has a page on the project.

While NIMBYism is generally awful, in this case, it was somewhat justified; the location of the facility is completely inappropriate. Given the desirability of Hudson Square, the city should have sold the land for condominiums or hotel development, as either use would have been higher and better than what has ultimately been built; using prime Manhattan real estate for trash collection is clearly an inefficient allocation of land and resources on the city’s part.
....

Completion of the garbage garage is expected in 2014, and work on an adjacent salt shed will soon follow.
