Just south of the still-exposed train yard that gave the Hudson Yards neighborhood its name, progress is being made on another two new mixed-use skyscrapers. While teasers have been shown before, the first full renderings are now out for the towers planned at Block 675.

Earlier today, Gamma Real Estate secured approval from the Board of Standards and Appeals to continue with construction of the Foster + Partners designed residential tower that will rise over 800 feet above its surrounding context, at 3 Sutton Place. Located just south of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge on East 58th Street between Sutton Place South and 1st Avenue, and only a stone’s throw away from the East River, the project has continued to stir controversy and disapproval from local NIMBYs, who have been attacking the plans since renderings were revealed back in December 2015.
