Rounding out our Turkey Week rundown of stalled projects is Three Hudson Boulevard, a planned 56-story commercial skyscraper in the Hudson Yards district. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Boston Properties and The Moinian Group, the $3 billion project is planned to stand around 940 feet tall and yield 1.86 million square feet of office space, but has been on hold since early 2020. The plot occupies a full block bound by West 35th Street to the north, West 34th Street to the south, Bella Abzug Park to the east, and Eleventh Avenue to the west.
Recent photos show the foundations built up to street level and protective structures constructed around the core walls and covering several holes in the ground floor. A set of railroad tracks from Hudson Yards is visible through one exposed opening in the foundation. Wooden construction fencing still surrounds the site, but all machinery has been removed.
Three Hudson Boulevard was designed to rise with a uniform glass curtain wall with flat surfaces on the northern and southern elevations and a series of setbacks topped with private office terraces on the eastern and western faces. The ground floor would house a 40-foot-tall lobby with casual food and beverage options, and a sky lobby on the second floor would provide access to the elevators.
All office levels were designed to provide column-free floor spans with panoramic views of the neighboring Hudson Yards district, Midtown Manhattan, and the Hudson River. Floors three through seven span 50,000 square feet each, and some levels were expected to provide ceiling spans of up to 30 feet.
The below renderings showcase the interiors and the eastern side of the lower levels, emphasizing the building’s proximity to the 34th Street-Hudson Yards 7 train station.
It remains unclear when construction on Three Hudson Boulevard will resume.
