Just over a year ago, YIMBY reported that Related’s Fifteen Hudson Yards had reached its eighth floor. The tower had begun its upward journey to a marketing count of 88 levels, and now, it has officially reached its pinnacle, 910 feet above the streets down below.
The tower now extends fifteen feet higher than 10 Hudson Yards, the first major building to be completed in the district in 2016. 15 Hudson Yards will create 285 new condominiums, as well as 106 affordable housing units in its lower floors.
The Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group-designed tower also includes the distinctive Culture Shed, expected to become a coveted event space. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development. Ismael Leyva Architects are the architects of record.
Now that the tower is topped out, we do get a better look at how the curved four-leaf-clover top appears from the ground. While it would be improper to judge without the façade being fully installed, the indentations have certainly become more pronounced as the superstructure has reached its uppermost floors.
This steady progress means the tower is very likely to begin occupancy by the end of the year, as expected.
