And now the construction phase of the project is officially underway with the ground having been broken at the Related Companies 70-story tower going-up at 15 Hudson Yards.

When completed in 2018 the building will be 910 feet tall and contain 385 homes combining rentals and condos.

The building will be located directly adjacent to the High Line, a 1.45-mile-long elevated park that was built on a section of the old New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line. For any resident of New York City or visitor the High Line, particularly on warm sunny days, is an excellent destination!
