Checking in on Tishman Speyer’s 99 Hudson Boulevard Office Tower in Hudson Yards

99 Hudson Boulevard. Designed by Henning Larsen Architects and developed by Tishman Speyer.

YIMBY visited the site of 99 Hudson Boulevard, a proposed 44-story office tower in Hudson Yards. Few details have been revealed for the 1.3-million-square-foot project since developer Tishman Speyer released renderings last April. Henning Larsen Architects is behind the design, which features a distinctive massing of stacked glass boxes separated by recessed and protruding terraces. The plan calls for floor plates ranging from 50,000 square feet in the base to 22,400 square feet in the main bulk of the edifice.

Recent photos show the state of the site, which is located directly to the east of the Jacob. K. Javits Center on the corner of West 36th Street and Eleventh Avenue. The plot sits overgrown, but appears to have seen some excavation work in the past, exposing the concrete walls holding up the roadway for West 36th Street. A closer look shows excavators on the opposite side of a channel that carries railroad tracks, where several two-story structures were demolished. It is unclear if that area is also part of the property for 99 Hudson Boulevard.

Directly adjacent to the north of the parcel is 450 Eleventh Avenue, an upcoming 487-foot-tall, 531-room hotel designed by DSM Design Group and developed by Marx Development Group.

  1. You show 3 sites-which one is it? A completed foundation, an empty lot or the construction on the east side?

    Since the reelection is the only priority, this ignored depression means that this project probably won’t happen anytime soon.

  3. Why build if 30% less office space is needed . There are projections that it might be 40 to 45% less. If Corona has another outbreak look for freefall

    I dont get it, there is no demand for office space, any where in this town…. what a folly.

  5. Whats with all the haters? Let’s hope this is built so the city’s skyline can continue to rise! More building means more progress!

  6. Ppl this project was thoufh of 7 yrs ago. Like alot of hudson crap. If there were 10 fortune 1000 firms waiting they would be on the 5th fl by now.

    Yhe question ia wtf happens now. The hot offices r refurbished horse stalls in the meatpacking district. Dont onow if ppl need 34k ft next ro an old convention center.
