Developer Tishman Speyer has officially filed plans with the Department of Buildings for Bjarke Ingels‘ Hudson Yards tower The Spiral at 509 West 34th Street. As reported by The Real Deal, the filing confirms that the office tower will rise 65 stories and 1,005 feet and encompass 2.2 million square feet. When renderings were first released of the $3.2 billion project, which is distinguished by cascading landscaped terraces and hanging gardens, Ingels said his design “combines the classic ziggurat silhouette of the premodern skyscraper with the slender proportions and efficient layouts of the modern high-rise.”

According to the plans, the ground floor will have 27,000 square feet of retail space, and there will be offices on floors two through 62. Earlier this week, BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager who is looking for a new home, turned its sights from 2 World Trade Center (another BIG-designed tower) to one million square feet at The Spiral or nearby 50 Hudson Yards.

Tishman Speyer bought the parcels that make up The Spiral site in 2014 for $238 million. As of this past February, they’d already secured more than $1 billion in equity from a group of international investors that will go towards “the acquisition of additional development rights and for ongoing design, engineering and other pre-construction costs.”
