A tipster sent along the link for 3 Hudson Boulevard’s new website, which has all the details for the soon-to-be supertall, as well as views from the top of the tower. The project’s architect is FXFOWLE, and Moinian is developing; a recent report indicated that the project has secured a ground loan, which means that construction is now imminent.
3 Hudson Boulevard will stand 1,050 feet to its pinnacle, and will contain a mix of uses; tenants have the option of turning the entire building into offices, but given the incredible demand for elevated residences, condominiums on the upper floors would appear to be likely. The tower will total 1.8 million square feet, and the fact sheet has additional specifications.
The tower’s impact on the skyline will be significant, given its location on 11th Avenue, which guarantees permanent visibility from New Jersey — at least pending an eventual redevelopment of the Javits Center. While the largest buildings at Related’s Hudson Yards development will be taller, those towers will be located to the southeast; the skyscraper is directly to the north of 55 Hudson Yards.
Views will be impressive, and the tower’s perspective over the Midtown skyline will be particularly noteworthy; the build-out of the rest of the neighborhood will enhance the vistas with additional architectural icons.
Besides its elevated profile, 3 Hudson Boulevard will also contribute to the pedestrian sphere, and the project will front directly onto the new Hudson Boulevard and Park. Renderings reveal the fountains and landscaping that will define the tower’s interaction with the subway station, and the end result will greatly enhance a portion of Manhattan that is currently barren, creating a walkable and pedestrian-friendly environment.
Completion of 3 Hudson Boulevard is expected in 2018.
