SET to totally transform the Manhattan skyline when it fully completes in 2024, Hudson Yards is the largest private development project in United Stated (US) history.
Constructed over a live railway yard, the vast new district encompasses 28 acres of soaring skyscraper office blocks, premium high-rise apartments, a USD $2 billion shopping mall and several new restaurants.
It even features a new arts centre with an impressive retractable roof.
At the centre of the new development sits The Vessel – a truly unique structure that, despite sitting much closer to ground level, still manages to overshadow many of the 200 metre towers around it.
Indeed the work has polarised opinion and faced criticism since its unveiling, with few arguing in its favour.
It’s time to put that right. This is why the project should be praised, not condemned.
