Situated immediately to the north of Hudson Yards’ first phase, 3 Hudson Boulevard sits at the corner of West 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue. Seen through the crowded perimeter of trailers, trucks, and mechanical equipment, one can get a small glimpse at the amount of progress the site has made since excavation officially began about one year ago. The tower is currently the 14th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City, and will rise 53 floors and 940 feet to its rooftop when complete. FXCollaborative is the designer, while the Moinian Group is the developer of the two million square foot project.
When it comes to building big, The Moinian Group is one of New York City’s most notable developers. With Sky now the largest residential building in the Five Boroughs, YIMBY sat down with the firm’s CEO, Joseph Moinian, to discuss their recent work, what’s coming next, and whether the cavern under 41st Street and 11th Avenue will ever yield a subway station, as was originally intended. YIMBY in bold.
Permits have been filed by the Moinian Group for a major new 37-story mixed-use tower to rise at 3 Platt Street, in the Financial District of Manhattan. The building will also have the address of 110 John Street. The site is five blocks away from the Fulton Street subway station entrance, serviced by the A, C, J, Z, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains.
The blocks of Midtown West feature some of the largest new developments of any neighborhood in the Five Boroughs, with the Moinian Group’s Sky containing the most apartments of any tower in the city, with over 1,100 in all. But just a few blocks to the northeast, the developer is nearing completion on a slightly smaller 164-unit building at 572 Eleventh Avenue, which will officially be named Oskar, and has now launched its teaser website.
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.
