New, 2 comments

WEST 57TH STREET—Excavation is well underway at 217 West 57th Street, the Extell tower that will house a Nordstrom, a bunch of condos, and will cantilever over the neighboring Art Students League. NY YIMBY got some pictures of all the equipment doing its work, as well as the equipment at the equally active 220 Central Park South site across the street. [NY YIMBY; previously]

UNDERGROUND—Construction appears to be finally underway on the 800-foot-long, 35-foot-deep Amtrak tunnel that will create a new connection between Manhattan and New Jersey via rail. The tunnel is being built sooner rather than later because the more of Hudson Yards they built, the more difficult work on the tunnel is going to be. [AP; previously]
