Great shots!

Anyone know what that tunnel is for on the southwest corner? Is it some sort of underground access from the 7 train over to 30hy and the mall maybe?


#389

No sure but that might be connection to pneumatic garbage disposal system that HY will have.

This is such a massive footprint. Appears to be about 80,000 square feet.


#391

My Google Earth measurements (350×200) came to 70,000ft^2


#392

I still can’t believe this is the final design :unamused:


#393

Height bump?


#394

Foster is terrible.


#395

This looks like it will be one of the largest buildings in terms of floor space in the city. Its not that tall but it has mass.


#396

The original proposal with all the setbacks was great.


#397

The rendering reminds of what One New York Plaza would like if they were building it in 2018. That’s not a compliment!

This tower is a huge disappointment.

I am so unenthused by this forthcoming banal pile.


#402

lol I don’t know why I enjoy seeing you write how much you despise this tower every other comment. You must have 50 Hudson nightmares.

I think it will be OK if the materials are superb. I don’t like how it blocks 30 HY from the north, but I guess that’s just NYC construction.

I’m just hoping for a pleasantly surprised reaction when it is done.


#403

This tower is a dud, but at least it’s not just a blue glass box. I’m far more concerned about 3 Hudson and what a blight that’ll be. People will be too busy looking at the rest of the yard to even notice this box.

But is it a wasted opportunity? Of course.


#404

I thinks that 3 HY will turn out very well. I suspect that the original design will rise.


#405

Remember the older design with all the setbacks? Almost like a very fat steinway?
