Edge observation deck, the most anticipated public-facing component of the Hudson Yards megaproject, is finally open. Perched 1,131 feet above Tenth Avenue on the 100th floor of Kohn Pedersen Fox’s 30 Hudson Yards, Edge galvanizes the new mixed-use neighborhood with an attraction unlike any other in New York.
Bjarke Ingels Group‘s 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, is rapidly climbing above Hudson Yards. Like its next-door neighbor 50 Hudson Yards, the 66-story supertall has nearly doubled in height since YIMBY’s last update in December. Tishman Speyer is the developer, Turner Construction Company is the construction manager, and Banker Steel is in charge of fabricating the steel for the 1,031-foot-tall commercial office skyscraper, which is expected to cost $3.7 billion.
50 Hudson Yards continues to climb toward its 1,011-foot-tall parapet in Midtown. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the steel superstructure is covered in safety netting as it rises up around the reinforced concrete core. The 2.9-million-square-foot commercial project is developed by Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan and is the final component in first phase of Related Companies‘ 28-acre Hudson Yards master plan.
Developers behind a sprawling mixed-use community in The Bronx recently secured an $18.85 million injection from Meridian Capital Group, one of the largest mortgage brokerage firms in the United States. The funding is specifically allocated to facilitate the construction of a new building at 2475 Exterior Street located along the Harlem River, immediately south of the Alexander Hamilton Bridge.
The site of the Hudson Arts Building at 220 Eleventh Avenue is gearing up for excavation in West Chelsea. Designed by Studios Architecture and developed by The Moinian Group, the glass-clad commercial office project will span a full block between West 25th Street and West 26th Street and feature ceiling heights exceeding 17 feet. JLL is the exclusive leasing agent for the property.
