Another major milestone was reached last Friday in conjunction with the celebratory opening of Hudson Yards. 35 Hudson Yards, a 1,000-foot-tall, Skidmore Owings & Merrill-designed supertall, launched sales of its 143 residential units. David Childs is the architect of the glass and Jura limestone skyscraper, which is the tallest residential tower at Hudson Yards. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the two developers for the 1.1-million-square-foot tower. The interiors are being designed by Tony Ingrao while sales are being handled by Related Sales and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
Resorts World Casino released new renderings of its second phase in South Ozone Park, Queens. It has also announced that Plaza Construction will be the lead construction manager of the ten-story expansion project. The future four-star hotel will have 400 rooms, a two-story main entrance, an additional gaming room, conference and meeting areas, a fitness center, more dining options, and retail space. In total, this 500,000-square-foot addition is expected to create 1,000 new construction jobs. Work has already progressed to the second floor, and the first part of the expansion is set to open later this summer. Perkins Eastman is designing the new phase while Cosentini Associates is the MEP engineer. DeSimone is the structural engineer and Langan is the civil engineer.
Back in January, YIMBY released new renderings of 301 East 81st Street, aka 1562 Second Avenue that showed a two-story addition to the tower.

Designed by Studio Sofield and SLCE Architects, the 215-foot-tall structure stands 19 stories high and is being developed by Icon Realty Management. There will be 28 condominiums, a second-floor amenity space, and future retail space on the cellar and ground floor.
At noon today, New York’s newest neighborhood will ceremonially open for business. Hudson Yards‘ first public-facing attractions—the Shops & Restaurants and Thomas Heatherwick’s interactive sculpture Vessel—will welcome the crowds that have watched patiently from afar as the project’s soaring, glass-sheathed towers have transformed the skyline. Elkus Manfredi Architects is the designer of the seven-story retail center, of which Neiman Marcus is the anchor tenant. The city’s largest indoor shopping mall with more than 100 stores, it features 720,000 leasable square feet with nearly 85 percent of the space already occupied.
