Work is wrapping up on The Edge observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards in preparation for a March 11, 2020 opening date. Cantilevering 80 feet out above Tenth Avenue at an elevation of 1,131 feet, The Edge is the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. The platform protrudes from the sloped eastern elevation of the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed commercial office building, which at 1,296 feet tall comes in at number four in our countdown of the tallest buildings being constructed in New York City. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the developers of the supertall, which is also the tallest structure in first phase of Hudson Yards.
Demolition work is continuing at 270 Park Avenue, where JP Morgan Chase is tearing down its current 707-foot-tall headquarters to construct a new 1,425-foot-tall, 2.5-million-square-foot home. Designed by Foster + Partners, the future Midtown East supertall is the fifth-tallest project underway in New York City.
Construction is moving along at 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, the eighth-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City in YIMBY’s annual countdown. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the massive commercial office tower is rapidly ascending toward its 1,031-foot-tall parapet over the Midtown neighborhood of Hudson Yards. Tishman Speyer is the developer, Turner Construction Company is the construction manager, and Banker Steel is in charge of fabricating the 66-story, $3.7 billion supertall.
The steel superstructure is continuing to rise skyward at 50 Hudson Yards, the number-nine project on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in New York City. Workers have made a significant amount of progress since we checked in one year ago, when foundations were just beginning to make their way toward street level. Now, a mass of steel beams, columns, and trusses for the wide floor plates are ascending around the reinforced concrete core. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the 1,011-foot-tall commercial office supertall is the final segment of the first phase of Related Companies‘ Hudson Yards complex. Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan are developing the 2.9-million-square-foot structure, the largest component in the 28-acre master plan by volume.
Work appears to have resumed at Three Hudson Boulevard in Hudson Yards, the 11th-tallest project under construction in New York in YIMBY’s annual countdown. Work on the foundations of the planned 940-foot-tall office skyscraper stalled in 2019 while the scope and architectural form of the structure underwent several revisions. However, activity was recently spotted at the southern end of the property, where a small group of workers are currently forming the final section of the reinforced concrete foundation wall. The 53-story project is designed by FXCollaborative and being developed by Moinian Group.
