YIMBY user Thomas Koloski recently photographed New York City from above, capturing the prodigious swaths of construction transforming the skylines of Lower Manhattan, Midtown, and beyond. Below are a number of major sites that are taking shape, some of which are nearing topping off and set to be completed in 2020.
50 Hudson Yards
Renown architect Norman Foster’s office skyscraper at 50 Hudson Yards is beginning to rise above street level. With 2.9 million square feet of floor space, it will be the largest commercial office building by square footage in the first phase of Hudson Yards, as well as the final structure in part one of Related Companies’ master plan. The site is bound by West 33rd Street, West 34th Street, Tenth Avenue, and Eleventh Avenue. The future 1,011-foot-tall tower sits across the street from 30 Hudson Yards, while construction on 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral by Bjarke Ingels Group is also underway to the north. Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan are the other two developers for the Foster + Partners-designed project.
Recent photos from Tectonic show major progress at 50 Hudson Yards, the last and largest skyscraper to rise in the first phase of Related’s Hudson Yards master plan. The future commercial office building, designed by Foster + Partners and developed by Related Companies, Oxford Properties, and Mitsui Fudosan, will rise 1,011 feet tall and contain 2.9 million square feet of space. The site takes up one full city block just north of 30 Hudson Yards, and sits to the east of the 7 train entrance at Hudson Park.
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.
Work on Hudson Yards’ largest commercial office tower is continuing apace at 50 Hudson Yards. Located across the street to the north of 30 Hudson Yards, the last site under construction as part of Related’s Phase I sits along Tenth Avenue and West 34th Street. It is being designed by architect Lord Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, and is currently the ninth-tallest being built in New York City. Related Companies, Oxford Properties, and Mitsui Fudosan are the developers for this project.
