Progress is continuing on the 180-foot-tall northern wing of the Jacob K. Javits Center in Midtown West. Designed by TVSdesign and developed by Empire State Development Corporation, the $1.5 billion, 1.2-million-square-foot addition will raise the facility’s total span to 3.3 million square feet. Lendlease and Turner Construction Company are working together to assemble the Hudson Yards project while the developer is aiming for LEED certification.
Earlier this week, Empire State Development selected Lendlease Corporation and Turner Construction Company to build the 1.2-million-square-foot expansion at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, located at 655 West 34th Street in Hudson Yards. Atlanta-based firm tvsdesign is the architect on the development team, Commercial Observer reported, and has presumably replaced FXFOWLE Architects.
