Supertall office towers are nearing a dime a dozen in Hudson Yards, with 30 Hudson Yards already passing the 984-foot mark, and 1 Manhattan West, The Spiral, and 50 Hudson Yards set to eclipse it over the next few years. While most of the neighborhood’s residential towers have been a few steps behind their larger companions along 57th Street, the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed 35 Hudson Yards will be the first to pass the threshold. Now, the building has passed the halfway mark, and as its exterior installation has also progressed, the future icon is quickly gaining prominence on the Midtown West skyline.

Construction is moving swiftly at 570 Broome Street, and the 25-story high-rise has officially topped-out. YIMBY last reported on the site a month and a half ago when renderings of interiors and the lobby were revealed. The site is rising in Hudson Square, which is rapidly filling with new residential developments following a comprehensive rezoning passed earlier this decade.
Barnard College announced plans to build a new 11-story library and academic center to replace the existing Lehman Hall back in 2014, estimating the project would cost $150 million. YIMBY reported on permit filings for 40 Claremont Avenue back in October of 2015, and now, construction is just about complete on the attractive new building, as seen in the latest from Tectonic.
Renderings revealed for the new 25-story high-rise in West SoHo. Tahir Demircioglu, founder of the architectural firm Builtd, designed the 287-feet tall structure.

Yesterday, YIMBY reported on the latest progress at Brookfield’s Manhattan West, in Midtown West/Hudson Yards. Today, the first filings have appeared for the site’s second office tower, which will sit on the northwest corner of 31st Street and Ninth Avenue, and has evidently seen a moderate height chop.
