Related Companies and Oxford Properties have signed private equity firm KKR & Co. for their 90-story office tower at 30 Hudson Yards, and they’ve sent out some new renderings of the building to highlight the announcement.
Back in July, YIMBY provided you a construction update on 15 Hudson Yards, Related Companies’ 70-story, 960,000 square-foot mixed-use tower planned at Hudson Yards, in Midtown West. Foundation work is now well underway, and rebar as well as the first steel columns can been seen protruding from concrete. The building will include 365 residential units, which will be a mix of rentals and condominiums. The Culture Shed will extend horizontally east from the tower’s base. Diller Scofidio + Renfro and the Rockwell Group are designing, and completion is slated for 2018.
In late July, YIMBY brought you a construction update on 10 Hudson Yards, the first of Related and Oxford Properties’ planned Hudson Yards towers. Today, the team will celebrate the topping-out of the 52-story, 1.7-million square-foot building, which will stand 905 feet to its pinnacle. Coach, Inc., L’Oréal USA, SAP, and Vayner Media have all leased space, bringing the tower to 85% occupancy. The skyscraper will officially open to tenants in early 2016.
The old Mercedes dealership at 520 West 41st Street and Eleventh Avenue is meeting a quick demise, paving the way for Silverstein Properties to begin preparation work for their future mixed-use development. While the project must still pass through ULURP, YIMBY revealed preliminary renderings last June, showing a 1,400-unit tower rising above a significant retail podium. Now we have a few overhead shots of demolition progress taken from the nearly-completed Skye, just a few hundred feet to the northwest.
YIMBY first revealed Related’s 51-story, 1.3-million square-foot office building dubbed 55 Hudson Yards in May of 2014, and then we brought you an excavation update earlier this spring. Today, per Curbed, foundation work is well underway. Kohn Pedersen Fox is designing, and completion is expected in 2017. Oxford Properties Group is co-developing, and Mitsui Fudosan also owns a 92.09 percent stake in the project.
