Hudson Yards' first phase at the eastern rail yards continues to make significant progress. Steel superstructure at the second office tower, 30 Hudson Yards, continues its rise at the northeastern corner of the rail yards. Designed by KPF, the 92-story, 1,287-foot tower will house Time Warner Inc. and feature an open-air observation deck.
At the corner of West 30th Street and 10th Avenue, the mega developments' first office tower has topped out and is almost fully clad with its glass curtain wall. Also designed by KPF, the 52-story tower at 10 Hudson Yards will house the likes of Coach, Loreal, and SAP.
Work is also underway on the retail building located in between the two office towers, with superstructure topped out and work underway on the east façade. The 1,000,000 square feet retail structure is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects and will be anchored by the Nieman Marcus department store chain.
The first residential tower, 15 Hudson Yards, has yet to progress beyond the excavation and foundation stage of construction. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro with Ismael Leyva Architects, the 70-story condo and rental tower has already seen a significant redesign that has stripped the tower of its most ambitious features.
