Over the past two months, 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, has made swift progress. The first steel beam for the 65-story skyscraper was dedicated in mid-April and erected at a time when the core foundation walls hadn’t yet reached street level. Now, the steel superstructure for the Bjarke Ingels Group-designed commercial office tower is three floors above the Midtown neighborhood of Hudson Yards.
Recently developer Tishman Speyer held a dedication ceremony to install the first steel column at the site of 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral. A number of people signed the white-colored steel beam before it was raised into place, marking a major step in the construction process for the upcoming supertall office building. The 2.85-million-square-foot structure is located in Hudson Yards and will be designed by Bjarke Ingels of Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). Turner Construction Company is the construction manager while Banker Steel is in charge of fabricating the steel for the 65-story tower.
Thanks to aerial photographs taken by Tectonic, we now have a clear overview of the current progress at 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Tishman Speyer, the site of the future supertall commercial office building is wrapping up excavation while the two construction cranes assembled in the past couple of weeks are now fully operating.
Taking up one full block bound by West 34rd Street, West 35th Street, Tenth Avenue, and Eleventh Avenue, 66 Hudson Boulevard is currently the eighth-tallest building under construction in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the glass commercial office supertall will literally put a spin on the idea of the outdoor terrace. The 65-story tower is being developed by Tishman Speyer, with foundations already progressing for the 1,031-foot-tall and 2.85 million square foot structure. The official non-marketing address for the project is 509 West 34th Street.
In June, Tishman Speyer announced that construction would start for their 64-story supertall office tower in the Hudson Yards district, dubbed The Spiral, so named for BIG’s staircase terrace motif. The look is indicative of the modern collaborative style of workspace the architects and developers are working to create. Today, YIMBY has an update on progress, which appears to be making swift headway. The site’s official address is 509 West 34th Street.
