I hope Phase II is still something to get excited over, it sounds a lot smaller in scale than the first though.

Phase II has basically the same scale as Phase I. It has roughly equivalent acreage and roughly the same (7 million sq. ft. in each phase) development rights.

And Phase II has, if anything, more exciting potential architecture, likely more daring. Announced architects include Calatrava, Heatherwick and Gehry.

Same scale, but the towers themselves are expected to be shorter. I agree that they have the opportunity to be much better and hope they are.

Hi all,

I will be in NYC this weekend arriving Saturday night. I have been following the construction of this incredible project since day 1 and I am so excited to see these beautiful towers. A couple of questions..

Is the Hudson Yards area open to walk around?
How much current open space is there?
Should I even bother going there (HY) since its still U/C?

Does anyone know of the walking space where the towers align perfectly? it looks almost like an unused railroad track converted into a pathway?? (South of HY)

Hope this makes sense!

Thanks!

They may be shorter, or they may be taller. No guidance re. building height has been given, and both phases have the same zoning.

I think the unused railroad track you are talking of might be High Line Park ?

They won't be taller, but that discussion should take place here...

A walk around the High Line is fine, it wraps around the railyards. Also, a walk up (or down) 11th Avenue, which separates the two phases. Take lots of photos, because there is still a lot of construction going on and still to come. They area will look different in a couple of years. The way it is now is a snapshot in time.

Take a long, hard look at what you see there now.

Now take that energy and focus it on saying the following words:

"Baby picture."

Coz that's what it is.

I don't think they're long for the world, esp. the UPS building.

UPS had it for sale as development site before last recession, and I don't doubt it will eventually happen.
