Topping out this week at 1,296 feet, 30 Hudson Yards is officially the second-tallest office building in New York City. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, the 90-story tower sits on the southwest corner of 33rd Street and 10th Avenue. In addition to its sheer size (it’s the tallest in Hudson Yards), the most notable feature of the supertall is its 1,100-foot outdoor observation deck, the highest of its kind in the city and fifth highest in the world.

Made up of 15 primary sections of steel and glass, the outdoor observation deck will extend 65 feet away from the building on its 100th floor. The pieces of the “jigsaw puzzle in the sky” range in weight from 35,000 pounds to 102,000 pounds, with the deck weighing in at 765,000 pounds in total. Jay Cross, the president of Related Hudson Yards, has called the observation deck the “new focal point for the west side skyline.”

In addition to office space for Time Warner, global investment firm KKR, Wells Fargo Securities and financial services group DNB, 30 Hudson Yards will be home to London restaurant Rhubarb. Rhubarb will operate a 10,000-square-foot space, with a bar and restaurant situated above the tower’s observation deck.

As 6sqft reported last month, nearby 35 Hudson Yards topped out at 1,009 feet, becoming the first residential supertall at the Hudson Yards project.
