Foundation work is underway at 606 West 30th Street, a 545-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Also known as Tower B in a two-building development along with 601 West 29th Street, the 42-story structure is designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and is being developed by Lalezarian Properties. The property will yield 312,350 square feet, with 192,780 square feet designated to residential space and 14,240 square feet for commercial use. There will be 260 residences averaging 741 square feet apiece. Some of the homes are planned to be rentals, but the exact breakdown has not been revealed.
A recent photo shows the state of work at the site, which is located along West 30th Street between Eleventh Avenue and West Street. Excavation and pilings proceeded throughout the first months of the year, and now construction is approaching street level. A large amount of steel rebar is laid down and awaiting the final concrete pour for the sub-level portion of 606 West 30th Street. Tower A is already several stories above ground, as seen in the background of the photo.
The renderings from Ismael Leyva Architects show a modestly tall superstructure with a glass curtain wall, several corner balconies, a vertically-oriented rectangular cutout in the middle of the northern elevation. This gesture will likely contain an outdoor terrace that overlooks the High Line and Hudson Yards. The design culminates in a sleek crown with a flat roof parapet. Residential amenities have not been revealed, except for a 30-foot-long rear yard and 56-space parking garage. The nearest subway is the 7 train at the Hudson Yards station, located between 50 and 55 Hudson Yards.
A completion date for 606 West 30th Street has not been announced, but it looks like sometime in late 2021 or early 2022 is conceivable.
