It's been a big day for the Hudson Yards megaproject. Its South Tower bagged a few more anchor tenants to bring it up to 80 percent occupancy: in addition to Coach, which developer Related Companies locked down a few years ago, beauty megabrand L'Oreal and software company SAP are now on board. Tenants will be able to move into the South Tower, at the corner of 30th Street and 10th Avenue, in 2015; the High Line passes through the building, too.
Along with the announcement, Related released a series of photos taken on the construction site, which are sort of gloriously artistic. In the Curbediverse, the construction work that makes awesome architecture possible certainly deserves to be elevated to the level of high art, but the way in which a welder gazes intently at a piece of metal in some of these shots is probably romanticized just a tad.
Above, you'll find some renderings that we've seen before of the 895-foot-tall tower and the Hudson Yards complex in general, along with some new shots of the lobby and the ground level of the office building. We've given you images of the hands-on work that's currently going on to erect the foundation as well as the idealized finished project?the rest of the visualization is up to you.
