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.
YIMBY and Instagram user Sinaevart has created a new set of renderings depicting how Foster + Partner’s original 2006 design for 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center, would look among the current skyline. The renderings come on the heels of the reports that Norman Foster is in the midst of revamping the design after developer Silverstein Properties returned to him to complete the final component of the World Trade Center complex. Work on the project has been stalled since the early 2010s.
Plans for 350 Park Avenue were revealed last year but we won’t see the supertall complete until 2027 at the earliest. In a 2019 fourth quarter earnings call last week for Vornado Realty Trust, the company confirmed that ongoing leases would conclude by end of 2023, which is the earliest it could begin to take down the current building and build the almost 1,500-foot-tall office skyscraper.
Extell has revealed renderings of the Central Park Tower’s 100th floor residential club. Perched over 1,000 feet above Billionaires’ Row, this will be the highest residential lounge in the world. The club will span 8,300 square feet and include a private ballroom, a dining room, a bar, a full-service kitchen, and a wine and cigar lounge. The 1,550-foot-tall skyscraper, which is also addressed 217 West 57th Street, is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and will contain 179 residences, on which Extell is expecting a $4 billion sellout. The 100th floor club is designed by Rottet Studio, which also designed the residential interiors.
