Adding to Hudson Yards’ height superlatives, the city’s highest outdoor residential amenity space has opened at 15 Hudson Yards. Rising 900 feet in the air, “Skytop” features 6,000 square feet of curvy indoor-outdoor space, which follows the shape of the building’s crown. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro with interiors by Rockwell Group, the amenity space offers unobstructed views of the Hudson River and beyond.
Skytop includes an outdoor terrace that is wrapped in a 60-foot tall glass screen. The space includes 3D-carved wooden planters that hold 14-foot-tall white oak trees. Inside, there is a private dining room that can seat up to 18 guests and a full catering kitchen and bar, as well as a lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows.
“Skytop is the moment where Fifteen Hudson Yards morphs into its deepest and most dramatic inflection point, so our intent was to take advantage of the tower’s energy and celebrate its extraordinary views,” David Rockwell, founder of the Rockwell Group, said. “The amenities are conceived of as fluid spaces that open up to the rooftop, creating the feeling of an extension of a penthouse with a vast window onto the city.”
15 Hudson Yards, which was the development’s first residential building, contains 88 stories and 285 apartments. Other amenities can be found on the building’s 50th floor, like a 75-foot indoor swimming pool, privates spa, fitness center designed by The Wright Fit, a beauty salon, and a children’s playroom.
On the 51st floor, residents have access to a club room, wine storage and tasting room, business center, workspace, sound-proof screening room, and two corner private dining suites. According to CityRealty, there are 13 apartments currently available at the building, ranging from a $2.75 million one-bedroom to a $32 million penthouse.
Hudson Yards has not shied away from sky-high amenities. Restaurant and bar “Peak” on the 101st floor of 30 Hudson Yards, the development’s tallest tower, will open next month, along with “Edge,” the building’s 1,100-foot-tall outdoor observation deck.
