Construction Update: 500 West 30th Street

Related’s 500 West 30th Street has been rising remarkably fast, and a quick floor count reveals the tower is four stories away from topping-out. The Stern-designed residential building is quite prominent from the High Line, though it will be utterly dwarfed once the Hudson Yards skyscrapers are complete. Future residents will still be lucky, as southern views will remain mostly unobstructed.

Tutor-Perini has done an incredible jobat least from an outside perspectiveas 500 West 30th has gone up ten stories since the last update, from mid-February. That’s a rate of two floors per week, which in some cases can lead to safety violations and accidents. 

Those who dislike perpetual construction can take heart in this, as Perini is also under contract for Related’s Hudson Yards mega-project. If 500 West 30th is any kind of indicatorand hopefully, it isthe Hudson Yards won’t be an immense and ever-lasting fiasco like the new World Trade Center
