"CHELSEA — Work on the High Line's third and final section could
begin as early as July, DNAinfo has learned...
The city put out a request for proposals early Monday morning to manage the construction of the elevated park's third section, which will run from from West 30th to West 34th Streets, stretching from 10th to 12th avenues.
Companies interested in the project have until April 20 to put together a plan to build the third section and preliminary work would begin on July 15.
According to the request for proposal, the project will last roughly 29 months.
Friends of the High Line, which helps fund raise for and run the park, has previously said the project will cost roughly $90 million and will open to the public by spring 2014...."

New Tower Plan Headed for West 28th Along the High Line
Monday, April 2, 2012, by Pete Davies
"Crews are ripping up the roof of the former Club Quo at 511 West 28th Street, prepping the plot for a new batch of residences that will rise along both sides of the High Line, just west of Tenth Avenue...
Along the High Line at 28th Street a 14-story slab will rise with 44 units above and a pool in the cellar, all butting up to the ginormous Avalon West Chelsea project that's now digging down next door. Rising over West 29th Street will be a blockier 14-story stack, with 128 units above and parking for 59 vehicles (and 162 bikes) on the lower floors. Across the High Line, at the southwest corner of Tenth and West 29th, a 25-story tower will rise, holding 140 units."
