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.
Work is set to begin at 555 West 38th Street, the site of a 52-story residential skyscraper designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. Located to the north of the first phase of Hudson Yards along Eleventh Avenue, the property sits directly across from the new expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Center and a couple streets south of the Lincoln Tunnel entrance. Machinery is on site in preparation for the excavation of the asphalt-covered lot to make way for the 570-foot-tall tower. Rockrose is the developer of the project, which will contain 598 rental units.
A new rendering has been released for 450 Eleventh Avenue, a 487-foot-tall hotel tower by Marx Development Groups in Hudson Yards. The redesign appears to be a much taller and features a more lively architectural scheme than the previous rendering from last month. Designed by DSM Design Group, the structure will contain a 531-room hotel from Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
Demolition has completed at the site of 601 West 29th Street in Hudson Yards for an upcoming 695-foot-tall, 58-story skyscraper designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Douglaston Development. Meanwhile, the adjacent lot is almost cleared for a 520-foot-tall, 42-story tower at 606 West 30th Street, which is being developed by Lalezarian Properties and designed by Ismael Leyva Architects. The two structures will share the parcel of land between 29th Street and 30th Street to the west of Eleventh Avenue.
