Wells Fargo has announced plans to consolidate most of its New York office presence across two buildings in Hudson Yards. Developed by Related Companies, the project involves the conversion of three stories of retail space in 20 Hudson Yards into 445,000 square feet of new office space, providing an easy link to the company’s existing nine-story footprint in the connecting 30 Hudson Yards supertall skyscraper. Wells Fargo reportedly purchased the former Neiman Marcus store, which closed in 2020, for $550 million and plans to open the new office in three years.
Construction has topped out at 40 West 137th Street, site of the new NYC Public Health Laboratory building in Harlem. The facility broke ground in 2022 and will create new facilities for specialized medical training, a 200-seat community auditorium, and the walk-in Harlem Express STI screening facility.
Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the ten-story building comprises roughly 240,000 square feet and is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification. Renderings of the property illustrate a stepped glass volume that slowly cantilevers out above a masonry-clad podium. A void between the two will include an outdoor podium with seating and planters.
