Curbed reports that Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group officially announced the signing of private equity firm KKR & Co. for 343,000 square feet of their upcoming mega-tower at 30 Hudson Yards. Marking the event, the developers have released a slew of renderings for the project, which is rising from the southwest corner of 33rd Street and Tenth Avenue.
The 90-story building will soar nearly 1,300 feet high, and the deal dictates that the firm will occupy the supertall’s top ten floors. KKR will have a dedicated elevator bank, a private sky lobby, and access to the tower’s hotly anticipated observation deck (which will be the highest in the city). The firm will relocate from the Solow Building at 9 West 57th and is slated to occupy the space by 2020.
The angular, glass covered tower designed by Bill Pedersen of Kohn Pedersen Fox is slated to be the tallest in the 12 million- square-foot development. It will boast the highest outdoor observation deck in the city and will have direct access to a 1.1 million-square-foot mall anchored by high-end department store Neiman Marcus. Like its neighboring Coach Tower at 10 Hudson Yards, 30 Hudson Yards will seek LEED Gold certification.
Just last week it was announced that Related will occupy 270,000 square feet over the building’s upper six floors with Oxford taking another 45,000 square feet. Time Warner has purchased 1.5 million square feet of the tower, more than half of its 2.6 million square feet. Time Warner’s deal allows the media giant to unify HBO, CNN, Turner Broadcasting, Warner Brothers and their corporate offices into the same space.
