2MW has to be over 700' at this point, right? Seeing these new sets of twins built is a sight to behold! The whole area evokes this futuristic vibe that the original Twins didn't have. They were imposing, sure, but a completed 1MW and 2MW are gonna be fabulous at night!

This was announced earlier, and I'm excited to see it get built. I hope they push forward with the northern expansion connecting to the riverfront.

Governor Hochul Unveils Designs to Connect Manhattan's High Line to Moynihan Train Hall
Extension from New York's Most Popular Elevated Park Creates Iconic New Pedestrian Pathway that Will Connect Penn Station and Moynihan Train Hall to West Side Destinations from Chelsea to Javits Center

$50 Million Project Complements State Investments to Enhance Midtown West



Quote:
Governor Kathy Hochul today unveiled designs for a new connector that will link New York City's High Line seamlessly to Moynihan Train Hall. This will happen via Brookfield Properties' publicly accessible Magnolia Court that runs through its Manhattan West development.

The proposed project will give pedestrians safe, unobstructed access to the Far West Side of Manhattan via two bridges that will connect to the 10th Avenue terminus of the High Line. A public-private partnership comprising Empire State Development, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Brookfield Properties Group, and Friends of the High Line is undertaking the $50 million project, which will be completed by Spring 2023.

"Despite the challenges and difficulties presented by COVID-19, New York continues to get things done - building boldly and ambitiously to leave a lasting legacy for future New Yorkers," Governor Hochul said. "The High Line's connection to Moynihan Train Hall and other nearby attractions complements our investments in Midtown West, encourages better pedestrian access and provides New Yorkers with a truly one-of-a-kind experience. New York State remains steadfast in its commitment to building functional infrastructure that improves quality of life, promotes economic growth, and helps secure a greener Empire State."
Quote:
Under the plan, the new landscaped Woodlands Bridge will extend eastward from the existing High Line parallel to 30th Street along Dyer Avenue from 10th Avenue to the mid-block between 9th and 10th Avenues, where it will connect to a second Timber Bridge which will travel north and connect into Brookfield's elevated public space on the north side of 31st Street, which terminates on 9th Avenue directly across from the Farley Building and Moynihan Train Hall. The High Line Moynihan Connector will offer a safe, scenic experience for commuters, residents, and visitors navigating this heavily trafficked area near the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel.
Quote:
Holly Leicht, Executive Vice President of Real Estate at Empire State Development said, "As New York continues to reopen and recover, our commitment to making innovative, strategic investments in areas ripe for future growth becomes an even more important part of our mission. The High Line Moynihan Connector is a catalyst for economic development, linking major New York City destinations, from Penn Station to Hudson Yards to the newly-expanded Javits Center."

Brookfield Properties Executive Vice President Sabrina Kanner said, "Brookfield Properties is proud to partner with Governor Hochul, Empire State Development and Friends of the High Line as we take this major step forward in the extraordinary transformation of Manhattan's West Side. We are thrilled to welcome New Yorkers and visitors alike to Brookfield's Manhattan West development, which will serve both as a center for restaurants, shops, and year-round public programming and as a vibrant gateway connecting Moynihan Train Hall directly to the entirety of the High Line and the new West Side."

Robert Hammond, Friends of the High Line Executive Director and Co-Founder said, "The new Moynihan Connector realizes a long-standing vision and the latest evolution for the High Line to provide New Yorkers with better and safer access to key transportation hubs, and the rapid project timeline meets the needs of a city emerging from the pandemic.

The design is an exercise in contrast, with its ribbon of lush green plantings, sustainable wood materials and a traditional, Warren-truss design railroad bridge juxtaposed by the High Line's steel structure and the modern glass facades of the surrounding buildings.
To be a truly 21st century city, we need more environmentally responsible ways of connecting. This infrastructure will allow connectivity from Penn Station all the way to the far west side or West Village with only having to cross one city street. We are excited to be part of this partnership, and look forward to making these connections available to all."

They have to light both towers, or it won't look right.

I wonder if the lighting was designed later or if it was always part of the plan. It came so far after completion. Makes me wonder how long it will be before we finally see lighting on 111 W 57.

some of the renderings showcased it, though it wasn't as bright.

Yeah, it was in an older rendering. But a lot of these towers take so long to get lit, you wonder if they ever will. One57 was almost given up on.

Crown lighting is a very important feature of the building, such as the ones on the Empire State Building and One Vanderbilt. Without them, they won’t look so beautiful and pretty though… :/

I disagree. These buildings are beautiful. Sometimes less is more, and I think these have been done right. They're not just boxes. You get a real feel for them from the ground level.

Anyway, they grow up so quickly....
