Work is continuing on the pilings for 601 West 29th Street, the site of a 695-foot-tall residential skyscraper and the 28th tallest building currently under construction in New York City. Located at the corner of West 29th Street and Eleventh Avenue on the border of Hudson Yards and the rising High Line-adjacent developments of West Chelsea, the project is designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Douglaston Development. The 58-story structure is also known as Tower A in a two-building development on the rectangular parcel.

Work has begun on the pilings for 601 West 29th Street, a 695-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Progress on the project, which is located at the corner of West 29th Street and Eleventh Avenue, has been swift since the lot was cleared and excavated over the summer. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Douglaston Development, the 58-story building is also known as Tower A in a two-building development on the parcel.
Excavation has progressed significantly at 555 West 38th Street since YIMBY last checked in on the Hudson Yards site in late August. Construction workers have ripped up all of the asphalt from the parking lot that formerly occupied the property and have unearthed a substantial amount of dirt. The plot will eventually give rise to a 52-story residential skyscraper designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and developed by Rockrose. Located directly across Eleventh Avenue from the Jacob K. Javits Center, the 570-foot-tall tower will contain 598 rental units. SLCE is the architect of record.
Construction has surpassed the podium levels at 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, one of the largest buildings under construction in New York City. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Tishman Speyer, the 65-story 1,031-foot-tall skyscraper sits at the northernmost end of the first phase of Hudson Yards. Turner Construction Company is the construction manager and Banker Steel is in charge of fabricating the nearly $3.7 billion ground-up supertall.
Excavators have begun to dig below street level at the site of 601 West 29th Street, aka Tower A, which will become a 695-foot-tall residential skyscraper. Our last YIMBY update was in early July, where demolition and clearing had just wrapped up at the site, which is located at the corner of West 29th Street and Eleventh Avenue. Workers are wasting no time at all with the construction of the 58-story building, which is designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Douglaston Development.
