New York-based Related Companies has hatched a redevelopment plan for Hudson Yards, the city's largest piece of undeveloped land. The 26-acre site will receive an $800 million concrete roof, and include 12-million-square-feet of offices, shops, movie theaters, gyms, hotel rooms, museum galleries and 5,000 apartment units.
"In the first $6 billion phase—scheduled for completion by late 2017—the tallest tower will top the Empire State Building, and even the shortest will have a penthouse on the 75th floor," New York Magazine reports.
Designers enlisted in the project include William Pedersen of, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates; David Childs, Skidmore Owings and Merrill; Elizabeth Diller, Diller Scofidio + Renfro; David Rockwell, Rockwell Group; Howard Elkus, Elkus Manfredi; and Thomas Woltz of Nelson Byrd Woltz.
Construction is reportedly scheduled to begin next month.
