RW caught this rendering on Related's website. Little crisper than previous renderings we've seen, at least from this angle.

Very superficially, and particularly from that view, it reminds me a bit of the WTC complex. I think I actually like the massing better, too.

The Equinox Tower is very New Yorkish. Shame it's not a bit taller but it looks like they added a bit more mass to it.

New York City officials, developers to break ground on $15 billion mini-city Hudson Yards


Tuesday's groundbreaking ends years of deal-making between developers and the MTA, which owns the rail yard and will lease the development rights for 99 years for more than $1 billion.

By Jason Sheftell / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS


Quote:
A new skyline in a waterfront neighborhood with apartments 75 stories high. An observation deck shaped like a spaceship jutting out from an office tower taller than the Empire State Building. A 5-acre plaza with a sculpture as large as Lady Liberty.
On Tuesday, city officials and developers will break ground on Hudson Yards, a $15 billion 15-structure mini-city on Manhattan’s West Side that will create more office space than exists in Portland, Ore.

Sorry for the double post, but I decided to bike around today because of the weather and swung by the Hudson Yards to see what it looked like. This is the first time I've ever seen heavy machinery on site. Might go back tomorrow and snag a photo from the High Line, we'll see. Photo is mine.

Related Nears Tenant Deals as Hudson Yards Breaks Ground


By David M. Levitt
Dec 4, 2012

Quote:
Related Cos. has tentative deals in place for two more tenants to occupy the first tower of its Hudson Yards development, Chairman Stephen Ross said today as construction began at the 26-acre site on Manhattan’s west side. The company has signed term sheets with two companies, making the first building more than 80 percent committed to occupants, said Ross, who didn’t name the potential tenants. Coach Inc. (COH), the largest U.S. luxury handbag maker, has already agreed to move its headquarters to the Kohn Pedersen Fox- designed skyscraper, which will reach 47 stories and include 1.7 million square feet (158,000 square meters) of space.

The first tower’s construction “is an important first step in fulfilling our vision for the new Hudson Yards community,” Bloomberg said at the groundbreaking. “We began with two basic principles: first we determined that the Hudson Yards area should be a mixed-use community and an extension of the Midtown central business district, and in addition to create affordable housing and schools, and insuring that businesses and their customers have world-class commercial spaces.”

The first tower, located at the corner of 10th Avenue and 30th Street, is scheduled to be completed by 2015. Under Related’s agreement with Coach, the accessories company would buy its almost 740,000-square-foot portion. Ross hopes to announce new leases for the building by the end of the year, he said in an interview after the groundbreaking.

SL Green Realty Corp., New York’s largest office landlord, said in a presentation yesterday that L’Oreal SA is rumored to be the second tenant. It included the Paris-based cosmetics maker on a list of pending leases designed to demonstrate the health of the New York office market. The list indicated L’Oreal would take about 400,000 square feet.

Joanna Rose, a Related spokeswoman, declined to comment on SL Green’s presentation. Stephanie Carson-Parker, a spokeswoman for L’Oreal, said the company doesn’t comment on rumors.

Still Building at the Edges of the City, Even as Tides Rise

By JIM DWYER
December 4, 2012

Quote:
...The plan, as a news release from the Long Island Rail Road said, was “to fight water with water.” It looked like a good, prudent idea. Then the storm came. The force of the rushing water simply shoved aside the bladder — approximate weight, 133 tons — and the flood moved toward Penn Station. Only the pitch of the tunnel diverted it away from the station and into another tunnel. The bladder was left in shreds. As one railroad worker said, “There was so much water in the yards, you could have gone surfing.”

That episode came to mind on Tuesday morning at the groundbreaking for a 26-acre real estate project at, and above, those same train yards — what Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said was “one of the largest private developments ever undertaken in the country.” It is called Hudson Yards.

A hefty portion of the project’s 26 acres is within the 100-year-flood plain, just as the World Trade Center development is, farther south. At least for now, Hurricane Sandy does not seem to have slowed the momentum of history, more than two centuries of building right up to the margins of the three islands and mainland that make up New York City.

Has the storm influenced planning for the yards? Not much, Ms. Rose said. “The inherent design of the Yards is resilient toward flooding due to the fact that our platform puts our first floor well above the flood plain,” she said. “All of our electrical and support systems are above grade.”

The platform is years from being built; the developer has yet to line up tenants for that mass of buildings. The groundbreaking on Tuesday was for the project’s south tower, which is actually just outside the yards, at 30th Street and 10th Avenue. It is not on a platform.

“The south tower, however, does have some systems below grade since it’s on terra firma,” Ms. Rose said. “Since Sandy, we’ve made some minor adjustments to the design to make it even more floodproof.”

A fuel pump will be moved to a higher spot, and the elevator pits will be waterproofed and sealed, she said.

Quote:
The 47-story South Tower by KPF recently crossed the 80-percent-leased line, anchored by Coach which nabbed 740,000 square feet in the 1.7 million square foot building. The footprint of the first tower sits just south of the rail yards, below where a platform will be built to accomodate further development, and adjacent to the High Line, partially straddling a portion of the wildly successful park. A large atrium at the base of the South Tower will overlook the High Line. The tower is being designed to achieve LEED Gold certification and will be complete in 2015.
