We figured we'd never live to see the 26-acre Hudson Yards megaproject rise over the huge train yard on the West Side, but the Related Companies recently said that the first tower could be on the way soonish. And Related's designers have apparently been busy little bees, because the Observer got some new renderings of what some parts of Hudson Yards might one day look like, including that first office/residential skyscraper. The illustrations are still preliminary, but at least they're more detailed than the earlier Related renderings. Have a look at the future of the West Side (fingers crossed!) in the gallery above, and then click through to the Observer for more.
