The past few weeks have brought substantial news surrounding the various supertalls coming to Hudson Yards, including 3 Hudson Boulevard, and 50 Hudson Yards. While both of those projects are still in their early stages of development, 30 Hudson Yards is now taking its place as the flagship tower of the new neighborhood, having surpassed its sibling 10 Hudson Yards’ 895-foot-tall peak, on the way to an eventual 1,296-foot pinnacle.
With activity making headway at several of the supertalls that will eventually comprise Hudson Yards, it should come as no surprise that progress is also occurring at The Moinian Group’s 3 Hudson Boulevard, where FX Fowle has designed a building that will rise approximately 1,050 feet to its rooftop. While Moinian has said plans for the tower are still being finalized, additional renderings of the spired version have again appeared thanks to its architect, and construction at the site also appears to have begun.
The development boom that began to envelope the 57th Street corridor with One57’s rise is finally at peak frenzy. 220 Central Park South is nearing completion, 111 West 57th Street is being clad in its terra cotta and bronze facade, and the future 1,550-foot-tall 217 West 57th Street, aka Central Park Tower, is also seeing its exterior falling into place.
The World Trade Center’s reconstruction has been in the works for over fifteen years, with multiple iterations of 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center, making the media rounds. Now, the New York Post’s Steve Cuozzo has reported that Deutsche Bank may be returning to the WTC, with the firm possibly set to lease 1.3 million square feet of space within the site’s last unbuilt supertall.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on the rise of the first of two cranes that will be used to build One Vanderbilt, on the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue, in Midtown East. Now, the second crane has been installed, and the first photos of the supertall’s facade have also been revealed. While glass won’t appear on the actual tower for another year or so, the initial images are very promising for what will become the tallest skyscraper in the neighborhood.
