Just south of the still-exposed train yard that gave the Hudson Yards neighborhood its name, progress is being made on another two new mixed-use skyscrapers. While teasers have been shown before, the first full renderings are now out for the towers planned at Block 675. Douglaston Development will be responsible for 601 West 29th Street, and Lalezarian Properties is behind 606 West 30th Street.

Just over a year ago, YIMBY reported that Related’s Fifteen Hudson Yards had reached its eighth floor. The tower had begun its upward journey to a marketing count of 88 levels, and now, it has officially reached its pinnacle, 910 feet above the streets down below.
Katz’s new neighbor is rising quickly. Construction at 196 Orchard Street, next to the delicatessen on the Lower East Side, is moving along, though pushing past its original estimated completion date of late 2017. The 11-story structure has topped out, and façade installation has reached the sixth floor.
Back in June, YIMBY reported on progress for the Block 675 Redevelopment, just to the southwest of Related’s Hudson Yards supertalls. The site sits on the corner of 30th Street and 11th Avenue, and there, Douglaston Development and Lalezarian Properties want to use air rights transferred from Chelsea Piers via the Special Hudson River Park District to build over 1,200 apartments. Now, we have some fresh renderings, a clearer look at Tower B, and the latest figures for the still-growing proposal, which consists of two towers being designed by FXFOWLE and Ismael Leyva Architects.
Among the new towers rising along the Brooklyn waterfront, The Greenpoint, which has already topped out, is among the tallest in its eponymous neighborhood. Cladding has reached the top of the 40-story residential building, interior work is currently underway, and today, YIMBY has a look at the views from within.
