Peak’s main dining room and views, photo by Charissa Fay
Hudson Yards is already home to restaurants from acclaimed chefs like José Andrés, David Chang, and Thomas Keller, but as of tomorrow, a new modern American dining option opening in the neighborhood will create an even higher standard, literally. The 10,000-square-foot restaurant and bar Peak will sit on the 101st floor of 30 Hudson Yards, the development’s tallest tower. Not only does it connect to the 1,100-foot-high sky deck Edge below, but it offers insane 360-degree views and a chic design scheme. Ahead, see some of the first photos of Peak.

Thanks to Rolling Stone’s awesome Women Shaping the Future event today, 6sqft got a first look at Edge, Hudson Yards’ observation platform that extends 80 feet from the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards. As though being 1,100 feet above ground wasn’t dizzying enough, the Western Hemisphere’s highest outdoor sky deck also has a glass floor. Ahead, get a first look at this truly one-of-a-kind experience and its incredible 360-degree views before it opens to the public on March 11th.

Facebook this week has signed a lease for 1.5 million square feet of office space across three buildings at Hudson Yards. Starting next year, the tech company will expand to 30 Hudson Yards, 55 Hudson Yards, and 50 Hudson Yards, the latter which will not be open until 2022 and will consist of the bulk of the lease at 1.2 million square feet.

6sqft reported back in March that Hudson Yards had opened a reservation list to experience Edge, the observation platform perched at a record-setting 1,100 feet in the sky. Now you can officially buy tickets to the Western Hemisphere’s highest outdoor sky deck. Visitors can gaze out on a 360-degree view of New York City’s iconic skyline from the champagne bar, or peer down through a glass floor. The platform-in-the-clouds will open on March 11, 2020; you’ll be able to sip cocktails or get a light bite at the 100th-floor bar or dine at Peak, the 101st-floor restaurant, café and event space.

In June, reports surfaced that Facebook was considering a lease for one million square feet of office space at 50 Hudson Yards, but the latest news from sources close to the deal indicate that the social media company will scoop up an even bigger footprint. As Crain’s most recently reported, Facebook is negotiating a lease for 1.5 million square feet across several Hudson Yards properties, with some sources saying that number could expand up to 1.8 million square feet.

Not only has Hudson Yards officially named the observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards “Edge,” but they’ve opened a list to reserve a spot to step out onto the 1,100-foot-high platform when it opens in early 2020. Along with being the highest outdoor deck in the entire Western Hemisphere (and the fifth tallest in the world!), it juts out 65 feet from the building with a glass floor to peer at the city below. And as the Edge’s website says, “Go further and lean out over Manhattan, literally, on the nine-foot wall of boldly angled glass—if you dare.”

Though it seems hardly a week can go by without a flurry of news from Manhattan’s newest instant neighborhood, Hudson Yards, the west side mega-project–the largest private development in the nation’s history–developed by Related Companies and Oxford Propertied Group now has announced that Friday, March 15th will be its official opening date. In addition to a grand opening celebration, the Public Square and Gardens and the neighborhood’s centerpiece, Thomas Heatherwick’s “Vessel,” are set to open on that date; more importantly, The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards will be officially open.
Off to quite a start

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.

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!

In addition to its sheer height, the deck, which will be the tallest outdoor observation deck in NYC and the fifth tallest in the world, will extend 65 feet away from the building with a window on the floor so thrill seekers can peer down.
