We’ve reported a lot on Related/Oxford’s Hudson Yards mega-development and the neighboring Manhattan West, from Brookfield. There are also plenty of independent projects in the greater Hudson Yards District. One of those is the supertall office building dubbed 3 Hudson Boulevard and, despite reports of trouble, the developer, Moinian Group, assures YIMBY that it is still a go.
Back in February of 2015, YIMBY revealed updated renderings of the 30-story, 225-unit mixed-use building under development at 509 West 38th Street, in the Hudson Yards District, located four blocks north of the 34th Street-Hudson Yards stop on the 7 train. Construction kicked off last fall and the structure has since risen to roughly the 22nd floor, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the tower will measure 243,689 square feet. It will include 13,739 square feet of retail space across the ground and second floors, and 29,180 square feet of community space for a non-profit on the ground through fifth floors. The units, which will be rental apartments, should average 786 square feet apiece, of which 46 will rent at below-market rates. Amenities listed on the Schedule A include laundry facilities, bike storage space, and a fitness center. Imperial Companies is the developer, while BKSK Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in early 2017.
The Port Authority has been struggling for years to develop two awkward lots next to the Lincoln Tunnel approach on the far West Side. The agency filed plans for a nine-story building at 431 West 33rd Street last fall, and now they’ve posted a rendering on the fence at the site between Ninth and 10th avenues.
Possibly the most prominent new development in New York City is beginning to come to life today. 10 Hudson Yards, the first building completed at Related and Oxford’s Hudson Yards mixed-use project, is opening its doors, and we have a new look at the skyscraper, which will be home to Coach’s corporate headquarters.
The forest of glassy towers in Hudson Yards is about to get a new addition. YIMBY spotted a construction rendering for 515 West 36th Street, a 38-story residential building under construction between 10th and 11th avenues on the far West Side.
