NYC: Hudson Yards

development news around the westside railyards/javits convention center at the yet-to-be developed northernmost end of the highline park:



From Ashes of Olympic Bid, a Future Rises for the Far West Side


An Olympic stadium never rose over Hudson Yards, but several towers have been built nearby.



A developer has plans for 12 commercial and residential towers, a park and a cultural center over the rail yards south of 33rd Street.


By CHARLES V. BAGLI
Published: November 27, 2011


Late in his first term, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg suffered a stinging defeat when, after an extensive planning and public relations effort, New York City lost its bid to host the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Now, though, a vibrant neighborhood is rising in the area where the Olympic stadium and complex would have stood on the Far West Side of Manhattan. As a result, officials, developers and urban planners are embracing an unlikely notion: the Olympic bidís defeat may have been one of the best things to happen for the cityís growth in recent memory.

The Bloomberg administration repurposed many elements of the bid to create Hudson Yards, the commercial and residential district taking shape west of Eighth Avenue, a once-desolate area of factories, lofts and parking lots between 30th and 43rd Streets.

Fifteen sleek residential towers have sprung up since 2005, the year that the Olympic bid was rejected, and a dozen hotels have muscled their way onto these blocks.

This month, one of the cityís biggest developers, the Related Companies, announced tentative plans to erect a 51-story office tower on the spot where the Olympic stadium would have stood, with Coach, the luxury retailer, as the anchor tenant.

Hudson Yards is going to be unreal. Like, I can hardly comprehend it.

Hudson Yards is basically the size of a typical midsize city's downtown, but with a fraction of the parking.  Hudson Yards is capped at 6,000 parking spaces whereas DT Cincinnati has about 35,000.

I believe I read that it is the equivalent of building a Downtown Portland (talking office-space).

^ geez thats wild to think of it like that.

and, even crazier to imagine, it's all to be built on top of platforms over a big, busy working railyard.

One of the most incredible developments I've seen in the United States in a long time. I hope it inspires similarly themed  developments in smaller cities, although admittedly the developments would be scaled smaller too.

And, sorry, but when I see this........




I couldn't help but think of this.......

more on the hudson yards park


With Hudson Yards Comes a 4-Acre, 10-Block Long Park

 Friday, December 7, 2012, by Jessica Dailey

The ceremonial groundbreaking for the Hudson Yards towers took place...but this isn't the first part of the West Side transformation to get underway. A four-acre stretch of tree-lined green space, called Hudson Park and Boulevard, that will connect Hudson Yards with 42nd Street broke ground earlier this year. The designs for the park were chosen way back in 2008, and aside from brief mentions in Hudson Yards updates, it seems like no one has really paid much attention to it over the last few years, despite it being billed as the central pedestrian spine that will connect the mega-development to the rest of the city.

a fascinating video animation showing how they are laying the deck over the open railyard for brookfield's manhattan west project nearby:




i peeked in for a photo yesterday:



^ not sure how they will cap the hudson yards, which is to the west of that site and much larger and wider. they are working on the coach tower on the se corner now, which is right next to the yards, but does not require a cap.

new year, new incredible renders released!
















^ if you are wondering why there is nothing on the western waterfront half of the railyards its because nothing has been designed yet or released yet. it will be mostly residential. its also where related expects to make their money, do you can bet it will be on the way asap.

this is really all we have about it:

^this actually looks a little better than the stuff going up at Ground Zero, but I'm sick of all this overdevelopment! Why not just build one giant 250 story building over 10 square miles of land? When will enough be enough? Maybe a deBlasio administration won't be so bad after all. At least his voice is more pleasant to listen to than Bloomberg's.
