55 Hudson Yards

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. Blau, Related’s chief executive and a board member at Mount Sinai, said, “They were saying they like having their doctors around the corner, and when we thought about it we realized there were no doctors around the corner because this neighborhood didn’t exist before.”

One year since groundwork began, 55 Hudson Yards is starting its ascent into the the far west side skyline. The future 51-story, 1.3-million-square-foot tower is the third office building to rise from the 28-acre Hudson Yards master plan, behind the Coach building at 10 Hudson Yards and Time Warner’s 30 Hudson Yards. Fifty-Five Hudson is being spearheaded by a partnership between Mitsui Fudosan America, Inc. (MFA), Related Companies, and Oxford Properties Group. Previously the parcel was owned by Extell Development who once planned a diagrid-ed skyscraper named One Hudson Yards (formerly the World Product Center).

The site is positioned just north of the west side rail yards on a full-block parcel bound by Hudson Yards Boulevard, Eleventh Avenue, West 34th Street and West 33rd Street. The building will open onto the new Hudson Boulevard and the recently open subway station for the 7 train. A brick-faced ventilation building that serves the subway extension rises from the southwest corner of the parcel and will be absorbed into the building’s massing.
