Hudson Yards tower will be a twist on the classic skyscraper

The illuminated rings on the 1,005-foot tower will be impressive at night, says its designer.

It’s where the High Line meets the skyline.

Builders of the Hudson Yards project unveiled a truly twisted idea for the under-construction neighborhood on the far west side: a 1,005-foot tower called the Spiral.

The name refers to a twisting ring of landscaped terraces that define the tower and, its designer hopes, link it directly to the northern terminus of the High Line greenway.

I'm not yet sure what I think of "the Vessel."

State taps Lendlease, Turner Construction for Javits expansion
1.2M SF project expected to cost $1.55B






January 31, 2017


Quote:
The state entity that controls the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center selected Lendlease and Turner Construction to develop the exhibition hall’s 1.2 million-square-foot expansion.

The directors of the New York Convention Center Development Corporation Tuesday chose the partnership as the design-builder of the project, which is expected to cost $1.55 billion, the Commercial Observer reported.

Lendlease and Turner beat out a consortium of Skanska USA, HOK and STV in the final selection round for the job based on their ability to meet the project’s technical requirements such as scheduling and design, according to convention center committee president Sarah Saint-Amand.

They also came in with a bid $26 million lower than the one Skanska proposed.

According to a presentation made ahead of the vote Tuesday, the development group is eligible for a bonus of up to $12 million if the project is completed ahead of its 46-month schedule.

New York state, which owns the convention center, has already set side $1 billion pay for the majority of the project. Bonds that the government issued in 2015 and 2016 will cover the remaining $550 million.

Following a $460 million renovation to the Javits Center between 2009 and 2014, state officials explored building a new, larger center in Queens. But in January 2016, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced he intended to expand the current facility.

“With a recent renovation and a rapidly changing West Side neighborhood, there has never been better time to visit the Javits Center, and this new project will showcase our spaces to new audiences for generations to come,” Alan Steel, CEO of the New York Convention Center Operating Corporation, wrote in a statement.

Shame they didn't decide to demolish this clunker, now we will be stuck with this undersized convention center for at least a decade more.

Yeah, they could have gone for something larger, but it is what it is.

I know that the city was really averse to connecting the high line directly to any private properties.
