The map of the day comes via the Real Deal, which details every major project and land buy near the Hudson Yards. Some we've already discussed, such as Extell's plans for Steven Holl's Towering S (#24) and the McSam Midtown West hotel empire (#11). All in all, a must read to get you up to speed on what will be the biggest construction pit in town. As for which megadeveloper is reigning supreme, it's Extell all the way, for now:
Extell may lead the way with the greatest number of large planned projects, bids or recent buys, with a total of five. The firm has already completed one condo building in the area, the Orion; has plans for a mixed-use tower and an office tower; is bidding on a massive hotel project; and just purchased a tract of land on 34th Street. But it's the Related Companies, Brookfield Properties and Vornado Realty Trust that may end up covering the widest amount of land, even with fewer total projects in the works.
And of course there's the matter of the Yards themselves, which Related, Brookfield and Vornoda are all bidding on. Hey, let's say we settle this the old fashion way: grab a ruler and meet us in the bathroom in five minutes.
