Related’s redevelopment of the formerly open-air West Side railyards is now becoming very apparent on the skyline, thanks to the rapidly rising 10 Hudson Yards. The Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed tower is closing in on its pinnacle, and the latest photo sent in by reader Mike McLaughlin shows its newly prominent position on the horizon.
The tower will eventually stand 905 feet and 52 stories to its roof, totaling 1.7 million square feet. The glassy facade is already rising quickly around the concrete, but the net effect of the building will only become truly apparent once its larger counterpart is finished just to the north, at 30 Hudson Yards.
We also have the first rendering for 30 Hudson Yards’ entryway. The building will open onto the corner of 33rd Street and Tenth Avenue, and its lower floors will be mostly encased in stone, contrasting sharply with its shorter sibling, though 10 Hudson Yards’ location directly on the High Line helps explain the difference.
30 Hudson Yards will be especially visible when viewed from the west, and we also have a new look at the tower from that perspective. It will eventually be joined by several other supertalls immediately to the left in the above frame, so while it will certainly be prominent, it won’t stay lonely for long.
Completion of 10 Hudson Yards is expected this year, and L’Oreal, Coach, and SAP will anchor the tower, while Time Warner will anchor 30 Hudson Yards, which will open in 2018.
