From the May issue: When the city rezoned the Far West Side in 2005, it wasn’t just to get mega projects — like the Related Companies’ Hudson Yards and Brookfield Property Partners’ Manhattan West — built.

The idea was to spur development in a 48 block-wide swath west of Eighth Avenue. And it worked like a charm.

This month, The Real Deal zeroed in on the area that’s buzzing with the most activity within that zone — the hub from 34th to 42nd streets concentrated between 10th and 11th avenues, which currently has 11.8 million square feet of new construction either underway or in the planning stages. [more]
