Curtain wall installation is getting close to completion on Lyra NYC, a 52-story residential skyscraper at 555 West 38th Street in Hudson Yards. Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects with SLCE Architects as the architect of record and developed by Rockrose, the 570-foot-tall structure will yield 598 rental units ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. Site C GC is the general contractor for the property, which is located along Eleventh Avenue between West 38th Street and West 39th Street, directly across from the Jacob K. Javits Center.
The construction elevator has been completely dismantled since our last update in December, leaving a gap in the façade to be filled in.
A rectangular banner advertising the property has been hung on the lower levels of the back side of the tower. Sidewalk scaffolding still surrounds the site, but the first level appears to be almost done.
Contrasting with the floor-to-ceiling glass is a section of light-colored stone slabs on the base of the northern side.
Amenities include a sky lounge for residents, a golf simulator, a squash court, a fitness center, co-working stations, and other features yet to be announced. The nearest subway from Lyra NYC is the 7 train at the 34th Street-Hudson Yards station, located to the south by Bella Abzug Park. The 1, 2, 3, A, C, and E trains, NJ Transit, and Amtrak are also nearby to the east at Pennsylvania station. To the north is the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel.
YIMBY last reported that 555 West 38th Street is slated for completion in the fall of 2022.
