Impressive Animation of How “Manhattan West” Development Will Be Constructed Over Active Train Tracks

Imagine you had to build four towers, one of them nearly the tallest in Manhattan, on top of nearly a dozen active train tracks—without disrupting the daily train traffic. That’s the challenge faced by Brookfield Properties, the developers of the Manhattan West project a block west of Penn Station, and their team: The architecture firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, mechanical engineering firm Laros, Baum & Bolles and railroad & civil engineering outfit Parsons Transportation.

This is my friend Don’s project. So, so cool.
