Related’s Hudson Yards development is one of the most impressive construction projects in the history of New York City, and an armada of cranes currently dominates the Midtown West skyline as towers at 15, 30, 35, and 55 Hudson Yards continue to rise. Now, YIMBY has the latest details for the office behemoth that will soon be coming to 50 Hudson Yards, as well as news on what’s happening at the Western Railyards, which will add further to the neighborhood’s burgeoning forest of skyscrapers.
Midtown West’s resurrection into a legitimately urban neighborhood has taken nearly a decade to get fully underway, but as the cranes continue creeping upwards for Related’s Hudson Yards mega-project, it is easy to forget the supertall rising one block to the east. Today, YIMBY has an update on Manhattan West thanks to Tectonic, where the site’s first office tower continues to make rapid headway towards its 995-foot pinnacle.
Hudson Yards is making major progress, with Related’s core redevelopment over the Eastern Yards now racing towards completion. While progress on the Western Yards is still a few years away, another large site on the southern side of West 30th Street is set for an impressive transformation from under-used retail and industrial buildings into a two-towered residential and commercial project that will top-out 700 feet above street level.
The long-planned Hudson Yards neighborhood is finally becoming a reality on the Far West Side of Manhattan. Developer Related Companies has filed plans for another gigantic office building, 50 Hudson Yards, at 415 10th Avenue.
After two years of negotiations, Related Companies has reached a deal to lease 15 contiguous floors, or 850,000 square feet, to BlackRock, the investment management corporation, at its planned 2.9-million-square-foot, 985-foot-tall office tower 50 Hudson Yards. The building is located along Tenth Avenue, between West 33rd and 34th streets, in the Hudson Yards district.
