Progress on the second highest tower in the Hudson Yards mega-development has reached a milestone. 35 Hudson Yards has officially topped out at 1,009 feet. Now that it has reached that height, it is the ninth tallest structure in New York City and 19th tallest in the United States. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development. Next door, 30 Hudson Yards is tantalizingly close to topping out, but the milestone has not yet officially occurred.
The prominence of the Hudson Yards district continues to grow, and today, Tishman Speyer has announced the official start of construction for The Spiral. The 1,031-foot tall building will be the fifth supertall added to the area. An event to mark the occasion will be held this afternoon, and will conclude with the planting of a 20-foot Alaskan Cedar tree to serve as Hudson Boulevard & Park’s annual Christmas tree.
It’s been over five years since groundbreaking occurred for the Hudson Yards mega-development. Today, phase one appears all but complete, and is increasingly hard to miss on the overall Manhattan skyline. Stretching over 26 acres and costing $25 billion, the full site will become the largest planned development in the country’s history.
Excavation at 50 Hudson Yards is nearing completion, and thanks to an aerial by Archartdescon, we can see that foundation work has also now commenced. Construction is advancing with incredible speed, and most of the site has been cleared since YIMBY’s last report in November. The pace isn’t too surprising when one considers the several excavators operating simultaneously. Related Companies is responsible for the Hudson Yards development.
Construction of Hudson Yards phase one is wrapping up, and its impact on the city’s skyline is already very substantial. The tallest of the bunch, 30 Hudson Yards, is just a couple dozen feet from its parapet. More significantly, the protruding observation deck is also nearly complete. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development.
