Well yeah, when you have towering skyscrapers on one side, and nothing on the other, I could see some people saying that. But when these massive towers are all built back to back, bringing with them the extra clogged sidewalks, the wisdom of city planning for these open spaces will become clear for everyone. Let it all get built.

All of these bulky towers with 1000's upon 1000's of employees when filled up is going to wreck Penn Station. The numbers are only rising. The number 7 line is going to need more capacity/volume.

Likewise for the A,C, and E.

Tishman Speyer recently held a dedication ceremony to install the first steel column for 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral.
The white-colored steel beam was signed before it was raised into place.
It now sits upright on the southern portion of the foundation.
This marked a major step in the construction process for the upcoming 65-story, 2.85-million-square-foot structure.
The site of the future supertall office tower is located in Hudson Yards.
It will be designed by Bjarke Ingels of Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG).
Turner Construction Company is the construction manager while Banker Steel is in charge of fabricating the steel.

Are they required to use union labor?

While looking at towers designed like this one, makes me feel like the design was lazy. Don't wanna do a box... so let me cut edges out as it spirals around! Brilliant! Sure, but anything other than glass would be a proper start. It's fat and squat, which is already a huge minus. Proportions are everything if the design is bland, and this one can't even muster eye-pleasing proportions. Architecture is so boring nowadays (except for exceptions like SHoP).

Architects will design what the client wants. The client will build what the tenants want or will be attracted to. In the case of this tower, it's both the large floorplates, and the outdoor terraces that are in so much demand these days. I find this building along with 50 Hudson to be a little too bulky, but that's the point of these things.

^^^^
From the last photo above it looks like the tower crane is mounted on the red painted iron frame. If so, does anyone have any ideas why it was done this way instead of mounting the base of the crane in concrete at the bottom of the building?

BTW, although I agree that this building is alittle too boxy, I like the concept. I think it would look much better if it were about 15 to 20 stories taller and the spiral continued and the building continued to taper to a smaller size. Easy for me to suggest spending another couple hundred million of somebody else's money. Going tall is expensive!

Sorry to be that guy, but is there anything on the drawing board for that surface parking lot across the street?

I believe that's the site where Related and Spitzer plan a significant tower with offices (and perhaps other uses as well). I don't think that it's currently a public parking lot.

Yeah, it's a two tower development. The residential tower on the eastern half will rise first, and the office tower fronting Hudson Boulevard will come later.

Phase one would start with what the developers are calling the “Tenth Avenue Parcel between West 35th and West 36th Streets,” where they wish to build a 415,000-square foot, mixed-use building with 400 apartments set atop nearly 75,000 square feet of office and retail space.

Phase two, which would rise directly next door on the “Hudson Boulevard Parcel,” would see the construction of a roughly 950,000-square-foot office tower overlooking Hudson Boulevard Park.
