The fast-paced construction of the SOM-designed 35 Hudson Yards is about to reach the roof. A year and a half ago, YIMBY reported on the building reaching the fourth floor. Now, the tower is tantalizingly close to its final, 71st story. The structure appears to have reached supertall heights, thanks to a two-story steel girder installed this week. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development, which is Manhattan’s third new residential supertall of 2018.
The 1,009-foot tall structure will yield just over one million square feet within. The building will create 137 condominiums, a 217-key Equinox hotel on floors 15 through 29, and some retail space on the first and second floors.
Now that the building has breached the threshold of 984 feet, i.e. 300 meters, it has become the third residential tower to reach supertall status this year, along with 53 West 53rd Street and Central Park Tower (CPT). The city’s two extant residential supertalls, One57 and 432 Park Avenue, are right along Billionaire’s Row with the CPT.
35 Hudson Yards is expected to be complete by 2019.
