Progress continues at Hudson Yards' first phase at the eastern rail yards, with construction underway on all parcels.
Concrete superstructure continues to rise at 55 Hudson Yards, the Related Companies office tower at the corner of 11th Avenue and West 34th Street. Design of the 51-story, 780-foot tower is led by Kohn Pedersen Fox with Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates. The tower's massing features a tenth floor setback that affords an outdoor terrace with views of the larger development as well as Hudson Park and the High Line. On the exterior, the curtain wall features black metal mullion caps that create a grid of chamfered rectangles.
Steel superstructure continues its rise at the second office tower, 30 Hudson Yards, 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. Steel superstructure has reached approximately 1/5 its final height and installation of the glass curtain wall has begun at the northeast corner.
Work continues on the retail building located in between the two office towers, with superstructure topped out and work underway on the exterior facade. The 1,000,000-square foot retail structure is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects and will be anchored by the Nieman Marcus department store chain.
At the corner of West 30th Street and 10th Avenue, the mega developments' first office tower has wrapped up construction and welcomed its first occupants. Designed by KPF, the 52-story tower at 10 Hudson Yards will house the likes of Coach, Loreal, and SAP.
The first residential tower, 15 Hudson Yards, is slowly making progress as it reaches street level with its concrete structure. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, the 70-story condo and rental tower has seen a significant redesign since its announcement.
Designed by the same team as 15 Hudson Yards, The Shed will accommodate performance, visual and multi-disciplinary art in a 200,000-square-foot structure. The project is composed of a six-story fixed building and a telescoping outer shell that can expand to the adjoining plaza to provide an additional hall for events. Steel superstructure on the fixed building has reached the fifth floor.
