While most of the speculation regarding Related’s Hudson Yards development has focused on the two major office towers, photographs of a model of the future Yards reveal another major tower. It has been known that a major residential tower will rise adjacent to the southern office building (which will be anchored by Coach), but less is know about the future hotel/mixed-use tower that will rise next to the North Tower.
With the height of both office buildings set to eclipse 1,000 feet, a third building stretching into the clouds would add an unprecedented (yet welcome) amount of density to an area that is currently forlorn. The tower is the flat-topped building to the right of the large ‘shard-type’ North Tower in this image–

The hotel tower’s design (likely quite preliminary) adds a great deal of mass to the complex, given the other prominent towers both have tapered tops. It will be interesting to see more details start to come out regarding the hotel and residential towers of the complex, as most of the focus up till now has been on the two office towers.
