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.

A rendering has been released for a 32-story mixed-use building in the Hudson Yards area, between 36th and 37th Streets. The owner of the three lots spanning those blocks? Gary Barnett’s Extell Development, the same group behind the neighborhood’s 610-foot tall 555Ten. CityRealty uncovered the image from BARCHs, a New York-based architecture firm which describes the possible project as providing “residential, retail and parking uses to this rapidly developing neighborhood.”

Last month, just after commencing construction, the 1,100-foot-tall observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards made New Yorkers gasp with dizzying construction photos. Now, developers Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have shared even more sky-high pics of what will soon be the tallest outdoor observation deck in NYC and the fifth tallest in the world. This set shows how the steel and glass sections–each of which weighs between 35,000 to 102,000 pounds–made their journey on barge through the New York harbor, down the streets of Manhattan, and ultimately up the 1,296-foot tower.

See all the vertigo-inducing pics!

Developers have long tried to lure buyers and renters with lists of spectacular amenities and high-end art collections, but Hudson Yards developers’ Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have something no other New York City developer is offering– a medical clinic for people who live and work in their buildings. According to the New York Times, Related asked buyers what they considered an “ideal” place to live. Jeff T.
