There has definitely been a huge amount of vertical progress and activity at the site of 555 West 38th Street. The rising reinforced concrete edifice is eventually going to culminate at a 570-foot-tall roof parapet and become a residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and developed by Rockrose with SLCE as the architect of record, there will be a total of 52 floors and 598 rental units. The property is found along Eleventh Avenue between West 38th Street and West 39th Street and is directly across from the Jacob K. Javits Center.
Construction is now several floors above street level at 601 West 29th Street, a 58-story residential skyscraper in West Chelsea on the border with Hudson Yards. Known as Tower A in a two-building development along with 606 West 30th Street, the 695-foot-tall building is designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Douglaston Development.
Construction is set to rise at Three Hudson Boulevard, a planned $3 billion office skyscraper designed by FXCollaborative for both Boston Properties and The Moinian Group. The 56-story Hudson Yards development is expected to culminate with a roof parapet of around 940 feet and yield a total of 1.86 million square feet. The interiors will feature column-free floor plates, private outdoor terraces for select suites, and prime views of the Manhattan skyline, Hudson Yards, and the nearby Hudson River.
