The steelwork is continuing its vertical ascent at 50 Hudson Yards, where the large rectangular floor plates have begun to reach the sixth and final floor of the podium. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the supertall skyscraper will eventually stand 1,011 feet tall and contain 2.9 million square feet of office space. Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan are developing the project, which is the final component in the first phase of Related Companies‘ Hudson Yards and will also be the largest office building by floor space in the 28-acre master plan.

The development is Heatherwick’s first residential project in New York City and in the United States. SLCE Architects is the architect of record.
The first residential project in New York City by Thomas Heatherwick is making swift progress at 515 West 18th Street in Chelsea. The curtain wall of bulging, two-story windows on the shorter, ten-story building is nearly complete, while the façade of the taller, 22-story reinforced concrete structure is now starting on the second floor. The topped-out buildings straddle the High Line and will become an eye-catching addition to the neighborhood for residents and tourists alike. The project is located between Tenth Avenue and Eleventh Avenue, and is being developed by Related Companies.
Work on 460 Main Street, aka Riverwalk 8, has topped out.

Riverwalk 8 is the eighth component in the nine-building Riverwalk rental complex.
