Work on the expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Center continues to progress in Hudson Yards. The massive expanse of steelwork is in place and offers a sense of the scale of the 1.2-million-square-foot addition. Tvsdesign is the designer and Empire State Development Corporation is the developer of the new northern wing, which is expected to cost $1.5 billion. Once completed, the project will bring the convention center’s combined square footage to 3.3 million and add an extra 22,000 square feet to the largest green roof in New York City. The construction and design build is being overseen by Lendlease in a joint venture with Turner Construction Company.
Construction has surpassed the podium levels at 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, one of the largest buildings under construction in New York City. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Tishman Speyer, the 65-story 1,031-foot-tall skyscraper sits at the northernmost end of the first phase of Hudson Yards. Turner Construction Company is the construction manager and Banker Steel is in charge of fabricating the nearly $3.7 billion ground-up supertall.
