Continuing our Turkey Week rundown of on-hold projects in New York City is Three Hudson Boulevard, a planned 56-story office skyscraper in the Hudson Yards district. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Boston Properties and The Moinian Group, the $3 billion project was planned to rise 940 feet tall and yield 1.86 million square feet of office space, but has been stalled since early 2020. The property occupies a full city 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 reinforced concrete foundations built to street level, with the stunted core walls at the center of the lot enclosed beneath a protective layer of dark wooden boards. Construction fencing remains standing around the property’s perimeter, though all machinery has long since been removed.
Meanwhile, the area surrounding Three Hudson Boulevard has been built up with several newly completed and upcoming office, residential, and hotel skyscrapers such as The Spiral by Bjarke Ingels Group, 50 Hudson Yards by Foster +Partners, The Set and Coterie at 451 Tenth Avenue by Handel Architects, and a forthcoming Aloft Hotel at 450 Eleventh Avenue by DSM Design Group.
If Three Hudson Boulevard resumes construction, it would rise directly west of The Spiral as seen in the below photograph, providing tenants with panoramic views of the Hudson River.
Three Hudson Boulevard’s ground floor was planned to house a 40-foot-tall lobby with casual food and beverage options, a sky lobby on the second floor, and column-free office floor plates above. Floors three through seven were to span 50,000 square feet each, while some levels would provide ceiling heights of up to 30 feet.
Office workers would have convenient access to the 34th Street-Hudson Yards 7 train station, which is situated directly east of the base.
The following scale model photographs offer additional detail in the skyscraper’s design.
No potential resumption date for Three Hudson Boulevard has been announced.
