Governor's Island Contest Winner?

Curbed has a post chock full of renderings by West 8, the Dutch firm that reportedly won the design competition for Governor's Island.

These renderings are miles above the ones I saw in NY Magazine this Spring/Summer. Two thumbs up if this is the route we're going. I love the topographical elements and the restored wetlands, as well as the promenade with what will be stunning harbor views.

UPDATE: Confirmed by the NYT . . . and here I was concerned it was too good to be true.

Also let it be noted that the Gov Island partner in West 8, the winning firm, is Rogers Marvel. Clarett has enlisted them to design 340 Court Street. Now, where are THOSE renderings!?
