Back in June of 2015, the McSam Hotel Group disclosed plans to incorporate a portion of the façade of a six-story Gothic church, at 334 West 36th Street into a new hotel development. Today, construction is nearly complete, with interior fit outs underway. Contrary to the depiction in the rendering, it appears the old Gothic church was completely razed, with a facsimile of the facade replacing the extant original.
Taking up one full block bound by West 34rd Street, West 35th Street, Tenth Avenue, and Eleventh Avenue, 66 Hudson Boulevard is currently the eighth-tallest building under construction in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the glass commercial office supertall will literally put a spin on the idea of the outdoor terrace. The 65-story tower is being developed by Tishman Speyer, with foundations already progressing for the 1,031-foot-tall and 2.85 million square foot structure. The official non-marketing address for the project is 509 West 34th Street.
Standing in between Kohn Pedersen Fox’s 55 Hudson Yards and Thomas Heatherwick’s Vessel staircase, 35 Hudson Yards rises 1,009 feet above the rail yards as the 10th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the 92-story mixed-use building will house 143 condominiums, a 217-key Equinox Hotel from the 15th floor to the 29th floor, and retail shops on the ground floor and second floor. This will be the tallest residential building at Hudson Yards and the third tallest in the first phase of the $28 billion dollar complex. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group Inc. are the developers of the 1.1 million square foot tower.
As reported by YIMBY in August of 2018, GDS Development filed permits to develop a 22-floor commercial tower at the corner of 31st Street and Broadway. Renderings have finally arrived from architects Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (SOM) and reveal a minimalist, glowing façade and several open-air terraces.
Standing high above Midtown and Hudson Yards on West 33rd Street, One Manhattan West is the first supertall Brookfield has developed in New York City. With 67 floors and 2.1 million square feet of office space, the 995-foot-tall glass building is the 12th-tallest tower under construction in New York, and will eventually be joined by its shorter twin counterpart, Two Manhattan West. They will be two of six components to the Manhattan West project that will bring a total of nearly six million square feet of new office, commercial, residential, retail and public space to Midtown West. Skidmore Owings & Merrill is the designer of the two glass office towers.
