The process of turning the Hudson Yards site on the Far West Side into something else continues. Last night, there was a meeting to present design and other guidelines for the 26-acre parcel that would have been the site of the failed West Side Stadium. The MTA, which owns the property is looking for $1 billion, give or take, from the sale of property. The north end of the site will be used for residential and commercial buildings. The south end will be residential. Building could go up to 60 stories. There will be significant open space in the middle and priority will go to saving the southern section of the High Line on the site. All the details make our brains explode, but you can read a lot more here, here and here, along with some renderings scored by Daily Intel, here. And, we expect to be writing versions of this post for the next two years, at least.
