30 Hudson Yards

30 Hudson Yards and Its Extruded Outdoor Observation Deck Approach Opening Day in 2019

As the tallest skyscraper in Hudson Yards and the 4th-tallest under construction in New York City, 30 Hudson Yards makes a notable impact on the Midtown skyline with its impressive height and prominent crown. The 1,296-foot-tall office building stands 73 stories above 10th Avenue and West 33rd Street, and will soon open its doors for business. Its observation deck will be the highest in New York, and that component will also contain an extruded outdoor viewing platform. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the architect, while Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the developers of the tower, part of the first phase of Hudson Yards.
