The Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have revealed the collection of commissioned artwork that will soon be installed within the Hudson Yards mega-complex in Manhattan. The selected installations are envisioned as an enhancement of Midtown West’s existing “cultural corridor,” which includes the Whitney Museum.
Located between Sixth and Seventh Avenue in Times Square, 145 West 47th Street will soon yield a new 343-key hotel. Designed by Berg + Moss Architects, the hospitality project is well under way, and the first floor is now being formed and assembled. The building will stand 27 stories high when complete, and have a total square footage of around 141,500 square feet. The property was sold by Stahl Real Estate almost three years ago for $101.2 million dollars, and TriBeach Holdings is the new developer.
15 Hudson Yards is a 910-foot tall structure, and the first residential skyscraper to be completed in the massive $25 billion Hudson Yards complex developed by Related Companies. With LEED Gold status, the new 88-story glass tower spans 960,000 square feet, and was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with the Rockwell Group. Ismael Leyva Architects served as the architect of record. David Rockwell recently led an exclusive tour, showcasing the building’s 40,000 square feet of amenity spaces on its 50th and 51st floors, followed by a question and answer session with architect Elizabeth Diller.
Skyline-defining towers have proliferated across the Midtown and Lower Manhattan skylines since the start of the 2010s, with the new World Trade Center joined by clusters in Hudson Yards, and 57th Street. Now, as One Vanderbilt approaches the 1,000-foot mark, a new race is appearing on the horizon in Midtown East. First, JPMorgan announced plans for a 1,400-foot-plus behemoth at 270 Park Avenue. Today, renderings have been released for Harry Macklowe’s planned office tower at 5 East 51st Street, which the developer has dubbed “Tower Fifth”. The supertall would become the tallest building in New York City by roof height upon completion, soaring 1,556 feet and six inches above the streets down below.
This month, BLDG Management officially began leasing at The Summit, a new rental property the developer has coined “a diamond in the sky.” Located at 222 East 44th Street, the 43-story building arrives as the first ground-up, residential building in Manhattan from BLDG.
