Work is wrapping up on The Edge observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards in preparation for a March 11, 2020 opening date. Cantilevering 80 feet out above Tenth Avenue at an elevation of 1,131 feet, The Edge is the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. The platform protrudes from the sloped eastern elevation of the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed commercial office building, which at 1,296 feet tall comes in at number four in our countdown of the tallest buildings being constructed in New York City. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the developers of the supertall, which is also the tallest structure in first phase of Hudson Yards.
