Construction is about to go vertical on 606 West 30th Street, a 545-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Lalezarian Properties, the 42-story building will yield 312,350 square feet, of which 192,780 will be dedicated to residential space and 14,240 for commercial use. The property is located between Eleventh Avenue and West Street near the border of West Chelsea.

Recent photos show the inner core walls, columns, and perimeter foundation walls reaching street level, while rebar protrudes upward in preparation for the start of construction on the ground floor.

Renderings show a uniform massing clad in a glass curtain wall. The only distinctive architectural element is a large rectangular cutout in the center of the northern profile that faces Hudson Yards. This can be seen in the renderings below. Behind this recessed cutout appears to be a tall green wall. Residential amenities include an indoor swimming pool and lounging areas that seem to flank this central green space, while all of these interior rooms come with a high ceiling spans.

    Oh, the cut out is on the north side. That’s a shame…

  2. So many new buildings are offering 3 months free rent.

    Are any of these apartments for the middle class ?

    Is it just for a few Facebook and Google employees

    Thanks to Michael Young.

  4. Have to say, after watching all these new towers trying to
    “one up each other”, and not relating as a cohesive complex, just one glass tower after another… I dubb thee
    “Dubai on the Hudson”!

    Only thing missing is a giant water fountain in the middle, and maybe an island in the shape of
    a “bagel” or a “hotdog”! 🤣

  5. I love the engineering of what they are doing in and around Hudson yards for sure, however can we please please please add some different material and texture to the facades of the buildings? It’s overwhelming and boring how much glass they are using

  6. Massive structures stacked tight side-by-side????
    No matter how high you are you’re looking out a window right into another building directly across the street
    All the original empty space why not more distance between each building????
    No excuse poor planning poorest quality of life. Shame

  7. It looks pretty simplistic, but it ain’t bad. It’s sort of kind like Tower A actually. I’m interested to see how Tower B goes.

  8. It’s going to be interesting to see how residents react to the effects of the reflections and glare from neighboring facades throughout the day.
