Standing in between Kohn Pedersen Fox’s 55 Hudson Yards and Thomas Heatherwick’s Vessel staircase, 35 Hudson Yards rises 1,009 feet above the rail yards as the 10th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the 92-story mixed-use building will house 143 condominiums, a 217-key Equinox Hotel from the 15th floor to the 29th floor, and retail shops on the ground floor and second floor. This will be the tallest residential building at Hudson Yards and the third tallest in the first phase of the $28 billion dollar complex. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group Inc. are the developers of the 1.1 million square foot tower.
Work on the entire facade is nearly complete, with the upper panels now crowning the top of the building. The indented, curved crown and sleek elevations are mixed with glass panels and thin vertical lines of warm-colored limestone. The concave and wavy facade on the southern and eastern ground floor elevation above the entrances is a striking and bold gesture juxtaposed against the building’s flat, rigid grid of rectangular panels. Multiple setbacks are found throughout the height of the tower.
The base starts with a subtle trapezoidal-shaped footprint and sets back on all sides while maintaining a relative pattern of rectangular and square-shaped floor plates until reaching the final levels of the tower. Up top, the residential units come with curved corners. Prices for the condominiums begin around $5 million dollars, and residences with 22,000 square feet of amenities. The interiors of the units are being designed by Tony Ingrao of Ingrao Design.
The exterior elevator on the western elevation should be coming down in the coming weeks, and interiors are also being fitted and worked on for the time being.
35 Hudson Yards will open this coming spring.
