The Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have revealed the collection of commissioned artwork that will soon be installed within the Hudson Yards mega-complex in Manhattan. The selected installations are envisioned as an enhancement of Midtown West’s existing “cultural corridor,” which includes the Whitney Museum.
15 Hudson Yards
15 Hudson Yards is a 910-foot tall structure, and the first residential skyscraper to be completed in the massive $25 billion Hudson Yards complex developed by Related Companies. With LEED Gold status, the new 88-story glass tower spans 960,000 square feet, and was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with the Rockwell Group. Ismael Leyva Architects served as the architect of record. David Rockwell recently led an exclusive tour, showcasing the building’s 40,000 square feet of amenity spaces on its 50th and 51st floors, followed by a question and answer session with architect Elizabeth Diller.
Rising on the southwestern corner of Phase I at Hudson Yards, 15 Hudson Yards is wrapping up its glass exterior work, while interiors are getting ready for opening day this coming spring. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Rockwell Group, and Ismael Leyva Architects, the tower stands 88 floors, and ranks as the 15th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. It is being developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group.
It’s been over five years since groundbreaking occurred for the Hudson Yards mega-development. Today, phase one appears all but complete, and is increasingly hard to miss on the overall Manhattan skyline. Stretching over 26 acres and costing $25 billion, the full site will become the largest planned development in the country’s history.
