    malls should be banned in the city (Manhattan)

    Vertical malls are fine in certain places. No reason to ban all malls

    Vertical malls concentrate retail in prime locations such as transport hubs which street retail can't contain. They also are useful in poor climatic conditions.

    Some of the greatest world cities have successful malls like this (Tokyo, Hong Kong, etc). Don't even attempt to argue that NYC is somehow 'above' vertical malls.

    Well, here's one part of the city I'll continue to stay away from.

    I was talking today with one of the head guys at the High Line. The City still hasn't actually acquired the last segment; it's still owned by CSX. The action last year (part of the ULURP process) gave the OK for the purchase, but the details between the City, the MTA and Related are still being worked out, as the final terms of the purchase are interdependent with the Related plans for Hudson Yards. Not an easy deal to finalize.

    He says lots of folks in the media haven't gotten the story fully correct. But then who can really understand ULURP?

    He hadn't yet seen the new Related HY vid posted here, but he was glad to hear that the entire final HL section, including the Northern Spur over Tenth Avenue at 30th Street, is shown in the vid.

    According to today's WSJ, Time Warner may move its HQ here from Columbus Circle.

    Don't understand why a company would want to move here---well besides the cheap rents for new office space Related is offering. But nothing proposed so far will turn this area into an "exciting new neighborhood" as the video suggests. It'll be the new Water Street.

    as far as malls goes, i've always liked boston's copley place and prudential center

    somehow they don't feel like malls, perhaps because of their high end shops and integration with office buildings, hotels, and convention centers and connection with the rest of the back bay made possible by the lack of parking lots

    In a few years this site at Hudson Yards be 2 blocks from a major subway connection to the west and a revamped suburban rail station to the east. It will have a major urban greenway running to the north, the High Line to the south and the Hudson River Park to the west.

    Water Street won't have improved subway connection for a decade or more.

    btw: The Javits Convention Center now has new glass on the top section with more going in. The seams between the glass panels are much more minimal than the original '80s stuff. Looking good (considering what they had to work with).

    I can't believe you think companies would hate to move here. This will be a far nicer place to work than congested midtown. First of all you have brand new buildings. Then you have Water views, open space and brand new parks and greenway, access to river park, new subway station, closer to Penn Station, High Line, state of the art retail space, cultural event space. I am sure the surrounding area will get more and more retail as time goes on. Jeez, it sounds great. Also, they will practically have a new urban campus by the sound of it. West is NY's new frontier, there is no where else to build. The plan won't look like traditional NY, but it will be a worthy addition to the rest of Manhattan and I feel it will be a success. Someone has to be the first. For a while it may be desolate over there, but the future will see to it that it becomes more and more like a 21st century midtown area.

    While these buildings are no Torre Verres, they're actually pretty nice.

    new demolition beneath the northern high line/spur area.




    and the local 4-0 leaning out to tell me (yet again) that I'm not allowed to take pics
    (even though I was standing in the middle of the street).
