Another major milestone was reached last Friday in conjunction with the celebratory opening of Hudson Yards. 35 Hudson Yards, a 1,000-foot-tall, Skidmore Owings & Merrill-designed supertall, launched sales of its 143 residential units. David Childs is the architect of the glass and Jura limestone skyscraper, which is the tallest residential tower at Hudson Yards. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the two developers for the 1.1-million-square-foot tower. The interiors are being designed by Tony Ingrao while sales are being handled by Related Sales and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
YIMBY got a tour of the main lobby and a couple of the model residences with David Childs last week.
The concave glass and stone facade goes well with the curvilinear black canopy that hangs above the southern entrance to 35 Hudson Yards. The interior walls of the main lobby continue their elegant sweeping forms all the way to the elevator banks, which feature a large, colorful tapestry designed and crafted by Helena Henmarck.
There will be two- to six-bedroom units starting on the 53rd floor, ranging from 1,500 to 10,000 square feet. They feature views of the entire Hudson Yards Site, the Hudson River, Midtown, and Lower Manhattan. Several units will have their own private outdoor terrace, located along the corners of each setback. Residents will have access to 22,000 square feet of amenities, including a residents-only fitness center, a meditation room, a yoga studio, a billiard lounge, a golf simulator, lounge with a minibar, a boardroom with private office suites, a screening room, a library, a children’s playroom, a private dining room, and an event space that can accommodate more than 50 guests. Priority reservations for the in-building restaurant by Stephen Starr with round-the-clock in-residence dining services is an additional benefit for future inhabitants.
Below the units will be ground-floor retail space, several floors for offices, and a 60,000-square-foot flagship Equinox Fitness Club & Spa and SoulCycle. Memberships to these fitness facilities will also be offered to residents. An outdoor terrace with a sundeck and outdoor swimming pool round out the space overlooking the public plaza of Hudson Yards.
Prices for the residential homes begin at $5 million.
