New permits have been filed for a 52-story residential building at 555 West 38th Street in the Hudson Yards district of Manhattan. While the site is across the street from the Jacob Javits Convention center, it is not immediately next to Related’s mega-development, being five blocks away from 55 Hudson Yards. Rockrose will be responsible for the development.
New renderings have been released for the 92-story Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM)-designed 35 Hudson Yards, the second tallest structure in the mega-development. Along with the new renderings, images of construction reveal that the façade has shot up to just a few stories under the peak. Once fully installed, all five of the HY towers currently n the skyline will be near completely clad.
New permits have been filed that reveal 50 Hudson Yards will rise to be 1,011 feet tall. This brings the tower further into the supertall territory, when before it was one foot above the official minimum of 984 feet, or 300 meters. It is unclear how or if this will affect the overall design. The tower is the last of Hudson Yard’s first phase to start construction, and will coincidentally be the largest by floor area.
Yet another new high-rise is officially about to begin rising in Hudson Yards. Permits have been filed for a 43-story hotel at 450 Eleventh Avenue, across from the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and West 37th Street. The 34th Street Hudson Yards subway station is four blocks away. Atria Builders is responsible for the permit filings, and Flushing-based Marx Development Groups will be responsible for the development.
With a grand and unprecedented presence in the Midtown skyline, Hudson Yards continues to stop tourists and locals alike, as steel and concrete continue rising into the sky. Several days ago, just after dusk, one aspect of the complex caught a few people’s attention by surprise. The Vessel, created by British designer Thomas Heatherwick, seems to have been illuminated for the first time since the 150-foot public sculpture topped-out last year.
