There appear to be caissons in the ground. Does that qualify it for "under construction"? If they are to structurally support the building, that would classify it as under construction.

Do we know for sure which version we are getting?

This should be moved. Its well under construction or at a very advanced stage of foundation work. I haven't been to the site recently, but based on the photos, I think this should be moved. Usually when caissons are placed, thats a sign that its u/c.

As of the 8th of November:

Great progress! The design of this building is one of my favorite designs. I think that the hits on this website will be skyrocketing this coming year.

Alex Poots to Lead New York's Planned $360-million Culture Shed





David Ebony
November 25, 2014


Quote:
Alex Poots, artistic director of the Park Avenue Armory as well as the biennial Manchester International Festival in England, has been named artistic director and chief executive of New York's Culture Shed. Poots will resign his Armory and Manchester posts next September to focus full time on programming for the $360-million culture complex located on Manhattan's West Side, overlooking the Hudson River.

Prior to his current positions, Poots served as director of contemporary arts at the English National Opera and worked as an independent producer. He helped create the Tate Modern and Tate Britain's first live events series, which highlighted works such as Anish Kapoor's collaboration with Arvo Part and Peter Sellars; and a project with Steve McQueen, Jessye Norman, and PJ Harvey. In 2012, he served as an artistic adviser for London's Cultural Olympiad.

The city has contributed $75 million toward the project to date. Further funding, around $266 million, has been secured so far from a variety of public and private donors and investors.

Construction is already underway for the six-story, 200,000-square-foot complex designed by Diller, Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group. Completion of the building is projected for fall 2017, and the Culture Shed's public launch is scheduled for spring 2018.

Related Companies breaks ground on first residential tower



Quote:
Real estate giant the Related Companies is getting started on the first of its skyline-altering residential towers at Hudson Yards, even as rumblings about a potential glut in the high-end condo market reach fever pitch.

The company has broken ground on a slimline 70-story skyscraper at 15 Hudson Yards, the Daily News has learned.

It will be the first of several residential towers at the $20 billion megaproject, which will comprise 16 skyscrapers at the site of the West Side rail yard in the West 30s. Construction on the new urban metropolis began two years ago, today.

Related's is certainly not the first residential tower to go up in the neighborhood around Hudson Yards. A slew of developers has already ridden on the coat tails of the company's efforts, bringing thousands of new condo units to the once industrial neighborhood.

But Related vice president Michael Samuelian says the company’s tower is going to be bigger — and better — that those of its competitors.

"If you go back 100 years, no one ever imagined that Park Ave. would be what it is today," he said. "This is the next Park Ave."

The new cylindrical-shaped 960,000-square-foot building, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group, will stand 910 feet tall and have approximately 385 homes, some rental and some condo. It will be directly adjacent to the High Line and connect to the Culture Shed, the new performance venue slated to host New York City's Fashion Week.

The property is slated for completion in 2018.

Related is also firing on all cylinders on its new office towers two years in, despite mixed views on the future of office leasing in Manhattan.
Experts have cautioned that, with more than 14 million square feet of office space slated to hit the Manhattan market before 2020, and flagging demand from tenants, landlords could have a lot of empty space on their hands.

"There's no office space glut in New York City," Samuelian said, definitively. "In fact, the supply of office space in New York is actually shrinking as lots of office buildings get converted to condominiums."

Stil, Related appears to be taking a more cautious approach to development than some of its peers, such as World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein. It’s waiting until tenants have committed to moving into its towers before it starts building them.

"Our first building was 85% committed before we put a shovel in the ground,” Samuelian said. “We're not of the mindset of 'If we build it, they will come.' We're building it when they're already there."
Hudson Yards’ first office tower, 10 Hudson Yards, has reached a third of its final height and is expected to top out next summer, a spokesperson for Related said. It will ultimately be 52 stories tall.

The building is co-owned by fashion retailer Coach, which plans to move its offices to the tower once it’s completed. A portion of the retail space will be home to Neiman Marcus’ first New York City department store.

The entire Hudson Yards project is expected to be completed by 2024.

....A neighborhood is only as good as the people who live there, and Hudson Yards hasn’t overlooked residential property in its plans, making sure that people can reside where they work. As a Chelsea resident, Samuelian said, “I personally am looking forward to walking along the High Line from my Chelsea apartment to Related’s new office at Hudson Yards. There won’t be a better commute in the world.”

Currently under construction is 15 Hudson Yards, the residential tower at the northeast corner of 30th St. and 11th Ave., set to reach 70 stories and stand 910 feet tall. Construction teams began drilling in the caissons for this project in December 2014.

The tower is designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group, in collaboration with Ismael Leyva Architects. It is notable for its tapered design, and will feature 385 residences for rent/sale, with 80/20 affordable housing included.

.....Connected to 15 Hudson Yards, the Culture Shed is an innovative public arts project by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and managed by an independent non-profit cultural organization to host art, performance, film, design, food and fashion. It features a retractable canopy covered with a lightweight, transparent plastic called ETFE, less than one percent the weight of glass.

Construction is already underway on the foundation of Culture Shed, with full construction to begin in mid-2015 and be completed by 2018.

Is there any plan to eventually clear that street of the garbage trucks? I can't imagine marketing high-end apartments/condos when the residents would have to smell that on an ongoing basis.

I cant help but feel bad for Diller Scofidio + Renfro, They seemed passionate about the previous design, remember tey saying how excited they were to create a new take on the highrise that gavve a unique visual impact from the middle of the building, I wish theyd bring back the old design.

Hopefully they will soon have a home in the "tower o garbage" which is nearing completion...

Tower O' Garbage Nearly Complete; Salt Shed Starts Rising

January 28, 2015
by Jessica Dailey






They had been fighting over the garage for years, there was once a proposed skyscraper on one of the sites hear the Hudson Yards...

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/16/ny...16garbage.html

Quote:
By JOSEPH BERGER
November 15, 2009


The city, proudly defending what it says is a congenial design that won approval by the City Council and the city’s Public Design Commission, argues that it has no choice.
Under a 2005 settlement with Friends of Hudson River Park, it has until 2013 to move garbage trucks serving three community boards off an eight-acre peninsula on the
Hudson River at Gansevoort Street. The only practical place to consolidate them would be the garage on Spring Street, it says.

Matthew Lipani, a spokesman for the Department of Sanitation, said in an e-mailed statement that the alternative proposed by community groups would require finding
and acquiring another site for a garage for the trucks serving the third community board — a Midtown district between 59th and 14th Streets. That would delay
vacating Gansevoort and end up costing more than the city’s proposal, he said.

The opponents have tried to propose other sites for the trucks of that third district, the Midtown community board, including a riverside space at 29th Street that was
originally condemned. That site has since been acquired by Joseph B. Rose, a former chairman of the City Planning Commission, who wants to build a 66-story hotel there.

I too was wondering about the redesign. I can imagine it was due to value-engineering. The original's design was, for a lack of better words, original!
