In the coming weeks and months, you're going to see a major transformation underway at the High Line’s northern terminus.

Earlier today Mayor Bloomberg, Speaker Quinn, and executives from the Related Companies and Oxford Properties Groupbroke ground on Hudson Yards – a major real estate development that it set to become the centerpiece of Midtown’s expanded central business district to Manhattan’s West Side.

Stand on the High Line near its southern end, and look to the west toward the Hudson River. You will see a giant construction site covered with steel beams, plywood, backhoes, and other heavy duty equipment. It is all part of the ongoing work to build the new High Line Headquarters and Whitney Museum of American Art.

Follow us after the jump for a construction update and photos.

In case you missed it, last month Travel + Leisure named the High Line as No. 10 on its list of the world’s most popular landmarks.
