Yet another rendering is out for the ‘Hudson Spire‘ development, and in an ironic twist, the fan-created image is better than anything official that has been released so far, showing the site within the context of its future neighbors. The reader-submitted illustration uses one of Related’s previously-released Hudson Yards renderings as its base.
Assuming the Hudson Spire does rise, the building will tower over all surrounding developments, dwarfing Related’s 30 Hudson Yards, which will stand 1,227 feet. The sales materials for the Hudson Spire site indicate that the skyscraper could potentially stand 1,800 feet tall, and a spire could bring the supertall’s total height to the 2,000 foot mark.
Massey Knakal — which is the site’s broker — has a page with additional information on the project, which has an official address of 435 Tenth Avenue. The eventual tower will span the entire block between 34th and 35th Streets, and available air rights total 1.2 million square feet; the actual lot’s area is 37,026 square feet.
While the site’s potential is clear, the air rights and speculated size of the tower do not exactly match; even the Nordstrom Tower has approximately 1.3 million square feet of air rights, and it will likely fall short of the 1,500′ mark. It does seem that the concept design is geared towards selling the site rather than depicting something practical, but the site could certainly support an 1,800-foot tower.
