Progress on the second highest tower in the Hudson Yards mega-development has reached a milestone. 35 Hudson Yards has officially topped out at 1,009 feet. Now that it has reached that height, it is the ninth tallest structure in New York City and 19th tallest in the United States. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development. Next door, 30 Hudson Yards is tantalizingly close to topping out, but the milestone has not yet officially occurred.
The 72-story building will yield 1.055 million square feet within, with 137 private residencies and a 217-key Equinox hotel on floors 15 through 29. Retail spaces will be included on the first and second floor. Residents will have access to a sky lobby, ballroom, and spa amenities.
David Childs, chairman of SOM, is responsible for the design. He is best known for designing the One World Trade Center. The architecture firm’s site says of the building’s design, “Terraces at each setback create outdoor gardens that become smaller and more frequent toward the top of the tower. Clad in limestone and glass, the building’s facade unifies the variety of programmatic elements stacked within.” The building is expected to achieve a LEED Gold certification.
Completion is expected by 2019.
