Construction is now 17 floors above street level on the 51-story, 1,269,852-square-foot office tower under development at 55 Hudson Yards, located on Eleventh Avenue between West 33rd and 34th streets in the Hudson Yards district. Progress, including façade installation, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower’s curtain wall will rise 761 feet above street level, with the top of the bulkhead rising 18 feet higher.
There will be 1,118,279 square feet of commercial space, consisting of ground-floor retail and 50 floors of offices. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the developers, although Tokyo-based Mitsui Fudosan owns a 92.09 percent share of the tower. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the architect and completion is expected in 2018.
