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.
UPDATE: According to a Related spokesperson, “Vessel” is still awaiting its final moniker.
Standing in the middle of the future five-acre landscaped public plaza at Hudson Yards is Thomas Heatherwick’s upcoming 150-foot tall public sculpture. This is the centerpiece of Related Companies Hudson Yards Phase I master plan and stands 16 stories high.
As the tallest skyscraper in Hudson Yards and the 4th-tallest under construction in New York City, 30 Hudson Yards makes a notable impact on the Midtown skyline with its impressive height and prominent crown. The 1,296-foot-tall office building stands 73 stories above 10th Avenue and West 33rd Street, and will soon open its doors for business. Its observation deck will be the highest in New York, and that component will also contain an extruded outdoor viewing platform. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the architect, while Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the developers of the tower, part of the first phase of Hudson Yards.
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.
