Construction is several stories above street level and rising at 450 Eleventh Avenue, a 487-foot-tall, 531-room hotel from Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide in Hudson Yards. Designed by DSM Design Group and developed by Marx Development Group, the 43-story tower is one of several new high-rise projects ascending to the north of Related Companies‘ first phase of Hudson Yards, across from the Jacob K. Javits Center. The boom in construction is gradually transforming this previously underdeveloped area of Midtown West into a thriving mixed-use destination.
Recent photographs show the rising columns, walls, and floor slabs teeming with wooden formwork as the reinforced concrete settles. A significant amount of progress has occurred since our last update in early July, when only the ground-floor slab was completed.
As rendered, 450 Eleventh Avenue will be one of the most distinctive additions to the new neighborhood. The structure will feature a lively design consisting of an undulating array of glass cubes, giving the appearance of a twisting stack of Rubik’s Cubes. The individual components of the boxes also feature a number of variations in geometry that will make for interesting reflections, especially when illuminated by the setting sun.
We last reported that 450 Eleventh Avenue is scheduled to be finished in the fall of 2022.
