    WTF is that in the centre of the first rendering?


    Hudson Yards Gets Even More Renders, Reveals Retail Interiors

    September 4, 2014
    by Zoe Rosenberg


    35 Hudson Yards, left, and 15 Hudson Yards premiere new designs. Renderings via New York YIMBY.

    Along with yesterday's announcement that Neiman Marcus will be the flagship retailer at The Shops at Hudson Yards, new renderings of the megaproject have revealed some design tweaks throughout the massive site. New York YIMBY spotted some minor changes to 35 Hudson Yards, the David Childs-designed residential tower that will hold 100 condos and a 150-room hotel. The building's facade, formerly curved, will now be—sigh—boxier. The renderings also depict the new, formerly noted design for Diller Scofidio + Renfro's 15 Hudson Yards, which has ditched its center "corset" feature in favor of a smoother facade.


    15 and 35 Hudson Yards, with a foreground image of Zaha Hadid's High Line addition at 520 West 28th Street.

    The new renderings also give some tantalizing glimpses of Hudson Yards alongside the hotly-anticipated swooping Zaha Hadid residential development at 520 West 28th Street.





    YIMBY also provides the first views inside the newly-announced Neiman Marcus which will occupy one-quarter of the one million square feet of retail space at The Shops, spanning between 10 and 30 Hudson Yards.



    The west side is quickly becoming a pedestrian-friendly swath of city. The High Line will link 10 and 15 Hudson Yards, and an easement of sorts will connect nearby Manhattan West and the High Line.



    Work has started on 10 Hudson Yards. 15 Hudson Yards is expected in 2017, and the rest of Phase One is expected to wrap-up the year following.

    They got some preliminary construction estimates based on the 'schematic design' phase drawings, before they move into the 'design development' phase: the 'numbers' knocked their argyle socks off - so let the 'value engineering' begin, as we will likely see further 'watering down' of the original architectural designs as presented to the public.

    No surprise. Boxes are cheaper and quicker to build. Don't like 15HY anymore, might as well be a box.

    ^ already looks as if it's just one more VE'd rendering of the top away from becoming just that.

    This was just too Jetsons to be true, in NYC at least.


    I'm scared for phase II.

    Still a great project though.

    One could wish for some sort of Architectural Review Board, for projects in general, with bonuses for good design, except that opens up that "law of unintended consequences" issue. Landmarks as it is turns down a lot of thoughtful work, and passes on some "it looks like what is next door" stuff.

    We know New York developers tend to shun non-boxy shapes for economic reasons. Could something like this ever be built in New York:

    That's the China Resources Headquarters under construction in Shenzhen, China by the way.

    I was wondering how wonderful it would have been if our 1 WTC looked like that instead of what we actually got.

    Compared to that above, 1WTC looks almost amateurish.

    Not too crazy about that angled triangle..... something very un-New York about it. It is however better than a flat top, which is undoubtedly going to haunt any new development these days of cheap developers and indolent architects.

    The Definitive Guide to the Hudson Yards Development Boom

    by Jessica Dailey



    Related Companies's 28-acre Hudson Yards megaproject isn't the only thing rising on the west side. The 2005 rezoning that paved the way for the new neighborhood created an entire district ripe for new development, and now, nearly 10 years later, these developments are happening at breakneck speed. The first tower of Hudson Yards is rising, the High Line is nearing completion, and dozens of new projects seem to pop up every day. To keep up with the craze, here is a map of 33 projects in the works within the Special Hudson Yards District, which stretches roughly from 30th Street to 41st Street and from Eleventh Avenue to Eighth Avenue.



    [Map from the Zoning Resolution (PDF)]

    Note that this map only includes developments located within the Special District (above), so some developments that are very close to Hudson Yards but not actually within the district— like Related's new Abington House and their planned rental building at 520 West 30th Street—are not included.
