On the heels of the news that Hudson Yards will add $18.9 billion to the city’s GDP and the reconfirmation that the developers will build an iconic $200 million sculpture at the center of the plan’s plaza, Related quietly launched a new Hudson Yards Living website, providing general information for prospective residents and a few new images of the $20 billion master plan.
In the first phase of the plan, upon the eastern rail yards between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues, construction of two massive apartment-filled towers has already begun.
First to arrive will be 15 Hudson Yards, situated at the corner of Eleventh Avenue and West 30th Street alongside the High Line and abutting the Culture Shed. The concrete superstructure is slowly beginning its climb skyward and will ultimately stand 910 feet tall and contain a mix of 390 condos and rentals units. As 6sqft reported last month, Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group are the designers, and they crafted a gracefully curving tower culminating in a distinctive glass quatrefoil. The tower will seek LEED Gold-accreditation and is slated for completion in 2018.

Directly north of 15 Hudson Yards, across a 4.5-acre public square designed by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, will be 35 Hudson Yards. The 72-floor building is designed by David Childs of Skidmore Owings & Merill and is distinguished by a curtain wall composed of vertical stripes of limestone and glass. Its classic silhouette of several setbacks climaxes in a curvaceous glass lantern.
Standing more than 1,000 feet tall, the building will have the highest residences in Hudson Yards and features three floors of fitness amenities that include a basketball court, swimming pool, and a flagship Equinox Fitness Club. There will be offices and a hotel on the lower levels and 137 residences above. A 2012 press release announced that Related Companies will move its offices into the tower when complete in 2019. And Related’s chairman, Stephen Ross, plans to move his personal residence from the Time Warner Center to the top floor of the new tower.
On the western rail yard, phase two of the Hudson Yards master plan will include seven residential buildings that are tentatively slated to be four condo towers and three rental buildings. Estimated to amount to nearly 4,000 units, their scheduled completion dates range from mid-2019 through the end of 2025.
