The first commercial tower to open in Hudson Yards, 10 Hudson Yards, is still making headlines, having now achieved LEED-Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. This surpasses original expectations of a LEED-Gold Certificate. Developers Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group announced that this is the first commercial building in New York City to receive the award since the LEED v2009 rating system was established.

The developers also announced that the 895-foot tall structure is now fully occupied, holding roughly 6,000 employees. Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is responsible for the design.

In other news, next door, 15 Hudson Yards has nearly topped out. Installation of the façade is also progressing, having reached roughly the 34th floor of what will be a 70-story tower. The superstructure appears to be either at the rooftop or only a few floors away.

While 10 Hudson Yards is already fully occupied, the Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed Fifteen Hudson Yards should take another year or so before residents begin moving in. Full completion is likely by 2020.

    Please pardon me for using your space: Must finish in the future, and must finish in the future. (Repeat)

  2. Not true, first platinum building was Bank of America Tower, then Hearst Tower, so 10 Hudson Yards is third one, not first one!

    • They said it was the first Leed Platinum V2009 which came into use in 2016, after those 2 buildings were completed.

  3. Also, while glass really appeared on 33 or 34th floor, but only 28 floors after that, really this building marketing as 88 story, actually have 72 actual floors will be constructed, now it’s only 64 out of 72!!! Plus mechanical on rooftop, total 915 feet tall, and in about low 800 feet territory as appears right now.
