The entirety of Hudson Yards is buzzing with activity. Each week seems to bring additional superlative announcements from the various corners of the neighborhood, with One Manhattan West, 35 Hudson Yards, and 15 Hudson Yards all rising above ground level over the past month. YIMBY now has fresh renderings of the last building thanks to Related, and the Diller Scofidio + Renfro/Rockwell Group-designed tower is now on its way to a 910-foot pinnacle.
15 Hudson Yards
Construction is now underway on the ground floor of 15 Hudson Yards, the 70-story, 391-unit residential tower at the corner of Eleventh Avenue and West 30th Street, in the Hudson Yards District. The latest photos are courtesy of Tectonic, who posted them to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower will eventually encompass 980,274 square feet and stand 912 feet above street level, not quite the supertall mark of 984 feet. It will contain 285 market-rate condominium units ranging from 843-square-foot one-bedrooms to nearly 5,200-square-foot penthouses. There will be an additional 106 residential units (probably rentals) designated as affordable. Related Companies and Oxford are the developers. Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group are the design architects, while Ismael Leyva Architects is the executive architect. Completion is expected in 2018. The steel structure seen behind 15 Hudson Yards is The Shed, formerly known as the Culture Shed.
YIMBY has brought you several composite renderings of what the skyline will look like over the next few years. Now we have a fresh image of what the city’s future holds, thanks to YIMBY Forums user Thomas Koloski, which illustrates the major changes soon coming to Jersey City, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Most of the projects added to the image are either already under construction or imminently rising, and their collective impact on the cityscape will push the New York City skyline to new, Coruscantian heights.
One of the most prominent new developments in New York City is currently under construction on Manhattan’s far West Side. Hudson Yards, when complete, will be a massive mixed-use complex, and now, thanks to a recently-launched website, we have some new looks at the project.
The rise of the supertalls has been several years in the making, and One57, 432 Park Avenue, and One World Trade Center have offered a preview of the increasingly gargantuan changes taking place across New York City. But 2016 will mark the start of a new era for the city’s skyline. With six supertalls of 300 meters (984 feet) or greater now rising, the city’s total number of such buildings will nearly double, from seven to thirteen. Yesterday, the New York Post featured YIMBY’s compilation of the towers, and today we wanted to give our own rundown on the image and its implications for our continually-changing city.
