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.
The Hudson Yards section of Midtown West is now home to a new, 399-key Courtyard by Marriott hotel. The 28-story building is located at 461 West 34th Street and will be managed by property owner Endeavor Hospitality Group. The project team also includes Marx Development Group and architect DSM Design Group.
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.
Tickets are now on sale to visit “Edge” at Hudson Yards, the tallest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. The observatory is perched 1,131 feet above ground and protrudes from the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards.
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.
