Renderings from FXFOWLE in recent months have pictured plans for The Moinian Group’s 3 Hudson Boulevard both with and without a spire. But now, plans for the project have seen a complete redesign, and ground has officially been broken on the 53-story and 940-foot-tall tower.
YIMBY has covered progress across Hudson Yards extensively in recent months, and the neighborhood’s rapid transformation is nothing short of incredible. But the last time we looked at progress at the Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed Fifteen Hudson Yards, it was back in December of 2016, when it was at its eighth floor. Now, eleven months later, work is approaching the upper floors of the soon-to-be 70-story tower, which is being developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group.
Applications have been filed for the demolition of three four-story buildings located one block north of Pennsylvania Station, in Midtown West. Vornado is responsible for the permits to level the structures, at 267 West 34th Street, 480 8th Avenue, and 486 8th Avenue.
YIMBY has covered One Vanderbilt’s evolution extensively, and several years after it was initially proposed, construction is now reaching well above street level. Today, we have a new look at what the uppermost portion of the tower will yield, in the form of its observation deck. The developer, SL Green, is considering several new options.
Yesterday, YIMBY reported on the latest progress at Brookfield’s Manhattan West, in Midtown West/Hudson Yards. Today, the first filings have appeared for the site’s second office tower, which will sit on the northwest corner of 31st Street and Ninth Avenue, and has evidently seen a moderate height chop.
