Today Related Companies, Oxford Properties Group and Mitsui Fudosan America, Inc. announced the start of construction on Fifty Five Hudson Yards.
The 1.3-million square-foot office building is the newest addition to the collection of towers to be located at Hudson Yards, the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States and the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center
LEED Gold-designed 55 Hudson Yards will stand 51 stories high and 780 feet tall and sit just across from the new No. 7 Subway station.
Construction will be completed in 2017 and tenant move-in should begin early 2018.
The conceptual design of the building was a joint venture of A. Eugene Kohn of Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and Pritzker Prize-winning architect Kevin Roche; KPF served as the Design Architect.
55 Hudson Yards sits at the southwestern edge of the new Hudson Park and will have an outdoor terrace overlooking the park on the building’s tenth floor.
The building’s design also provides future tenants the opportunity to carve private, double-height terrace spaces into the tower in flexible locations. The developers call the matte metal and stepped articulation of the window frames “strong and solid … modern but uniquely New York in character.
Hudson Yards will ultimately include more than 17 million square feet of commercial and residential space, more than 100 shops, a collection of restaurants, around5,000 apartments, a cultural space, 14 acres of public open space, a 750-seat public school and a 175-room luxury hotel.
