10 Hudson Yards

Location: West Side, Manhattan, NYC, USA
Year of Construction: 2010
Architects: KPF

Part of phase one of the Hudson yards development, this 52 story skyscraper was the first one to be completed in the Hudson Yards project and currently houses the headquarters of the fashion company, Coach. The building rises above the elevated High Line park, formerly a railroad, and connects with it through a passway that goes through the building; it also connects visually with it due to its monumental atrium.

This tower is directly related to the neighboring 30 Hudson Yards, also designed by KPF, as they dialogue through external aesthetics and shared public spaces.

30 Hudson Yards

Location: West Side, Manhattan, NYC, USA
Year of Construction: under construction 2019 estimated completion
Expected completion: 2019
Architects: KPF

This tower will be joined with the neighboring 10 Hudson Yards building by a common shared space featuring restaurants and stores, including high-end retailers such as Neiman Marcus. The project will be 90 stories high, and at 1280ft will be the highest building on the site; the height difference between 10 and 30 Hudson Yard buildings adds up to the physical dialogue between the two, as they create an optical phenomenon in which due to their angled shapes, the space between them changes depending on the point of view.

The tower features the highest outdoor observation deck in NYC, and will host several communication headquarters related to Time Warner, including CNN and HBO.

The Shed + 15 Hudson Yards

Location: West Side, Manhattan, NYC, USA
Year of Construction: under construction
Expected completion: 2019
Architects: Diller Scofidio + Renfro

The Shed will be a cultural building sited directly at the base of the residential building 15 Hudson Yards; both buildings were designed by the same architects, as they wanted to have control over the nature and shape of the building that would be adjacent to The Shed.

The Shed's most notable feature is its capacity of expanding and shrinking itself when needed, making it a flexible venue by the use of a rolling sleeve mechanism. It's also designed to have an adaptable interior, making it capable of changing its configuration depending on the character of the events taking place inside it. When the building shrinks, the 17000 sq ft plaza becomes available for outdoor activities and programs.

35 Hudson Yards

Location: West Side, Manhattan, NYC, USA
Year of Construction: under construction
Expected Completion: 2019
Architects: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Also referred to as "The E Tower" or "The Equinox Tower", the 35 Hudson Yards is a 72 story mixed-use building that will host residential units, a luxury hotel from the Equinox brand, Equinox spa, luxury office spaces, and a retail ground floor. Each one of the tower's different uses is visually defined by a series of terraces that break the facade and act as elevated gardens; the terrace fragmentation becomes more frequent as the building grows taller. The project was designed to meet LEED gold certification standards.

Expected Completion: 2022
Architects: Foster+Partners

This LEED Gold, 58 story tower will rise up to 985 ft and will be directly in front of the new subway station projected in Hudson Yards; it will also provide the commuters with bike parking spaces to make their multiple transportation rides easier. The facade will be made of glass framed by white stone to emphasize its verticality.

It will be the fourth highest commercial office building in NYC, by the time it's completed, and will host the BlackRock investment firm headquarters.

The Spiral

Location: West Side, NYC, USA
Year of Construction: in development
Expected Completion: 2024
Architects: BIG

Green spaces are the main characteristic of this 65 story office building that will rise up to 1005 ft. A series of interconnected garden terraces will go around the building, giving it a spiral appearance; in masterplan view, the green spiral will visually connect with the Hudson Yard's High Line and other green spaces. The terraces provide outdoor congregation spaces and panoramic views on every floor; each floor connects to another with a double height interior garden space, also aimed at social interactions and connectivity between office workers and their workspace. The shape was partly inspired on the Rockefeller center with a contemporary twist.
