NEW YORK, N.Y. - HUDSON YARDS

This $20 billion, 28-acre complex to be completed by 2024 features 16 buildings — 14 of them high-rises — occupying an area between 30th and 34th streets, and Tenth Avenue and the West Side Highway.

The first, 52-story tower rising over platform-covered rail yards is expected to open in 2015, anchored by the Coach luxury retailer with tenants including L'Oreal USA and the German software giant SAP.

Work has begun on a second, 80-story skyscraper that will be home to Time Warner, the parent company of CNN and HBO.

Hudson Yards will offer 5,000 residential units, about 100 shops and restaurants, 14 acres of public open space, a public school and a luxury hotel.

MANHATTAN WEST

This $4.5 billion, 5-acre complex to be completed by 2018 features five buildings — three of them high-rises — covering an entire square block between Ninth and Tenth avenues, and 31st to 33rd streets.

Also rising over rail yards, its two office towers and one residential skyscraper will look over a green outdoor plaza, a hotel and a 16-story office building constructed in 1969 that houses the world headquarters of The Associated Press and other media outlets. The older building is undergoing a $200 million renovation.
