Recent photos from Tectonic show major progress at 50 Hudson Yards, the last and largest skyscraper to rise in the first phase of Related’s Hudson Yards master plan. The future commercial office building, designed by Foster + Partners and developed by Related Companies, Oxford Properties, and Mitsui Fudosan, will rise 1,011 feet tall and contain 2.9 million square feet of space. The site takes up one full city block just north of 30 Hudson Yards, and sits to the east of the 7 train entrance at Hudson Park.

Looking from above, construction and formation of the ground floor has reached street level on the eastern half of the property, while the western half is closing in on the same milestone. One large concrete pour will finally complete the lower floors of the 1,011-foot tall skyscraper. The core of the building is easily distinguished by the large rectangular-shaped outline at the center of the floor plate, with a rim of dense steel rebar awaiting the form work to create the concrete walls.

Since the demolition of the previous buildings on site, excavation and construction of the substructure progressed quickly. The rest of the superstructure should also rise rapidly given the repetitive floorplates. Two setbacks will be featured in the design. One is found atop the podium, and the other around the halfway point of the tower, on the western elevation.

Inside, there will be private sky lobbies, and the amenity spaces and have the ability to accommodate over 500 workers per floor. Views of Hudson Yards, Midtown, and the Hudson River will be sweeping when looking out from the floor-to-ceiling windows or the outdoor terraces. BlackRock has already signed up to occupy 850,000 square feet spanning 15 floors.

Completion of 50 Hudson Yards is expected around 2022.

    Architecturally, this is by far the saddest (yet most imposing) building in the HY complex.

    I just don’t get Norman Foster, but at least we’re getting another silver glass box.

  5. Pardon me for using your space: Beautiful super tall building hard to see up enough to see down. ( Michael young, call me maybe )
