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.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Living very high under the sky, fear its height but happiness when you see birds smiling to you. (Thanks to Andrew Nelson again)

  2. I posted a comment via Reddit as well. I support super tall buildings in general if they are clustered together making the NY skyline visually
    beautiful. Technology allows architects to design super tall which allows for continued development of cities of the world. New York contributes to the continued expansion of our amazing city moving into the 21st Century and greater development in all aspects. Now let us make affordable housing in these super tall “ babies”. Suepooh

  3. Supertalls do nothing but block out the sun. I live on 34th street and sun used to flood my apartment and the surrounding streets all day. Now, there are a few slivers of sunlight sprinkled throughout the day. Next, two additional obscenely tall buildings are going to rise on opposite corners of 34th and 10th ave, further darkening the narrow streets below. Even the greenspace that is part of Hudson yards is covered in shadows and the shadows will only increase as more buildings rise. I guess that’s progress.

      It is progress. 34th Street should support high density compatible with the capacity of its infrastructure.

      I live on the top (3rd) floor of a Brooklyn railroad flat where most of our daylight comes from either end. Our living/kitchen space will soon lose its morning and early afternoon light as a new 12 story building is built in the back. I’m really unhappy about losing our sunshine but even relatively short high-rises block someone’s view or sunshine.
      Wyoming is wide open…

    One of the new supertall buildings should have a mid-priced restaurant near the top floor with a good view to replace Windows of the World which was lost on 9/11. What is now available for the public at Ground Zero sucks; its mediocre garbage, a lousy tourist trap.

  5. Let us all shed a tear for Martin. Maybe you shouldn’t live in a city of high rises but rather a cornfield.

  6. Its hilarious reading posts from people who choose to live in expensive apartments in Manhattan of all the places and complaining about the lack of sunlight. I guess they were hoping for a view of a cornfield or savannah outside their window and not skyscrapers.
