Renderings from FXFOWLE in recent months have pictured plans for The Moinian Group’s 3 Hudson Boulevard both with and without a spire. But now, plans for the project have seen a complete redesign, and ground has officially been broken on the 53-story and 940-foot-tall tower.
YIMBY has covered progress across Hudson Yards extensively in recent months, and the neighborhood’s rapid transformation is nothing short of incredible. But the last time we looked at progress at the Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed Fifteen Hudson Yards, it was back in December of 2016, when it was at its eighth floor. Now, eleven months later, work is approaching the upper floors of the soon-to-be 70-story tower, which is being developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group.
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.
The last time YIMBY checked in on progress at Brookfield’s Manhattan West, a little over a year ago, construction had just reached above ground level. Now, the superstructure for the first tower, at 401 Ninth Avenue, is closing in on the halfway mark, and in the past few days, glass installation has also begun.
Just over a year ago, renderings were unveiled for a public art piece in one of the most anticipated developments in New York City, Hudson Yards. The images revealed “Vessel,” an enormous, intricate structure that many believe is guaranteed to become a new city landmark, designed by Thomas Heatherwick.
