In June, Tishman Speyer announced that construction would start for their 64-story supertall office tower in the Hudson Yards district, dubbed The Spiral, so named for BIG’s staircase terrace motif. The look is indicative of the modern collaborative style of workspace the architects and developers are working to create. Today, YIMBY has an update on progress, which appears to be making swift headway. The site’s official address is 509 West 34th Street.
Morris Adjmi Architects has been hard at work, designing projects from 550 Clinton Avenue and 211 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn to 119-121 2nd Avenue and 110 East 16th Street in Manhattan. On top of all that, they filed permits for a new building in Williamsburg last month that will yield over 100,000 square feet. The building is at 215 North 10th Street, and today YIMBY has an exclusive reveal for a crisp new rendering of the design.
A new 40-story, mixed-use building could sprout from a wedge-shaped lot in Downtown, Brooklyn, pending approval from the NYC Department of City Planning. Zoning amendments would be required for construction to begin.
Harrison North of Guyon in New Jersey is the latest project to surface as part of the Harrison Waterfront Redevelopment Plan. As revealed by Jersey Digs, the mixed-use, 20-story tower is comprised of office and retail components. Located North of the Harrison PATH station, the tower will become the town’s tallest building and include 242,276 square feet of office space, 15,027 square feet of retail, and an unspecified hotel.
New permits have been filed that reveal 50 Hudson Yards will rise to be 1,011 feet tall. This brings the tower further into the supertall territory, when before it was one foot above the official minimum of 984 feet, or 300 meters. It is unclear how or if this will affect the overall design. The tower is the last of Hudson Yard’s first phase to start construction, and will coincidentally be the largest by floor area.
