I would rather prefer 50 Hudson being 1,000' with a 900' 55 Hudson vs. 1068' and 710' respectively.

Yimby doesn't say anything about 900 ft., neither does the HY Brochure he links to, only the 1.3 msf. As far as I can tell, the author of the Curbed article is speculating that it'll be about 900 ft., but it doesn't look like there's any new information to back it up.

The Yimby article doesn't refer to a floor count either so that may likely change if this tower is going 900 feet (not only did curbed put out that figure but they did so in bold). The original supertall scheme had the tower at 56 floors.

I dunno. I think I may be going crazy but I verified it after Jays comments and in fact, mentioned a approximately 900' tower and now is non existent on Yimby.

Lol. So therefore, fuggedaboutit! What I said.

It must have been a mistake, we should probably change the title back

It says tower could start in 2015


Veteran Team Designs Tower
Eugene Kohn, Kevin Roche Collaborate on Design for 55 Hudson Yards

Related Cos.' search for a fresh face to design its latest skyscraper on Manhattan's far West Side spurred a collaboration between two veteran giants of the city's architectural world.

Eugene Kohn, 83 years old, of Kohn Pedersen Fox, and Kevin Roche, 92, of Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates LLC, teamed up after Related Chairman Steven Ross told Mr. Kohn to bring in an outside architect for 55 Hudson Yards.

The reason: to cultivate a range of aesthetics for Related's buildings in the area. Mr. Kohn's partner, William Pedersen, has two buildings already under construction in Hudson Yards.


"We really see Hudson Yards as being diverse in architectural styles, a potpourri of top architects," said Jay Cross, president of Related Hudson Yards.

Related with its partner, Oxford Properties Group, was set Wednesday to unveil the design of the 1.3 million-square-foot building, which will rise 50 stories at the northeast corner of 11th Avenue and West 33rd Street. It is expected to cost about $1 billion to build.

"Architectural collaborations happen all the time, because somebody wants the points of view these people represent." said James S. Russell, an architecture critic and author. With their recent projects, he added, Messrs. Roche and Kohn "have gone in a classical vein, and both started their careers as Modernists."

And before now, the two men hadn't worked together.

Mr. Roche's most celebrated Manhattan building is the 1960s-era headquarters of the Ford Foundation at 320 E. 43rd St. His most recent office tower in New York is 750 Seventh Ave., near West 49th Street, completed in 1991. He is also known for work with cultural organizations, including expansion projects at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Mr. Kohn hasn't designed a major building in New York. He has led teams on some Philadelphia high-rises, including One Logan Square and the Four Seasons Hotel. He is highly regarded as his firm's deal maker, a force for bringing together parties required to make a project happen.

"We agreed to develop the conceptual framework together," said Mr. Kohn, whose firm remained the lead on the project. "We tried a number of schemes. I would send him something and he would respond, and it got better and better."

Mr. Kohn said he was inspired by Mr. Roche's Ford Foundation. "I always loved his expression of the tower of that building, the sense of elegance and strength," he said. "It expressed structure in the way we were trying to do."

Their new building is a gesture to the elegant facades of the SoHo Cast-Iron Historic District but it is to be built on a structure stemming from their own midcentury Modernist roots; 55 Hudson Yards will consist of a 41-story tower with floors covering 28,000 square feet each that will be atop a 10-story base, which will have floors of 44,000 square feet each.

"The thing I wanted to avoid was another twisted building," said Mr. Roche, in a reference to some contemporary towers with torqued facades. "Surely there's a way to design a building that's simple and straightforward, that meets the needs of the developers and occupants—a basic, fundamental sculpture."

Eventually, Mr. Roche's involvement in the project tapered off, and Mr. Kohn's team took over. Mr. Roche described his role as "an early design consultant."

Mr. Cross said he would green-light construction at 55 Hudson Yards when 30% to 40% of the building's space is pre-leased.

He said he believed that level of leasing could be achieved in time for an early 2015 groundbreaking—and an early 2018 opening.

The new tower at 10 Hudson Yards, anchored by Coach Inc., is scheduled to open in 2015. The one at 30 Hudson Yards, with its lead tenant, Time Warner Inc., is set to open in late 2018 or early 2019. Both were designed by Mr. Pedersen.

I love the base. I think it's awesome and as far as I can tell the most interesting.


Looks like this is what the top will look like more or less... Would have been awesome the cladding and look from the base continued all the way to the top instead of this. We shall see.




I Hope a higher quality rendering emerges tomorrow. As I said before it's going to be the detailing that will/should make this special. I'm hopeful anyway. After all it's going to cost $1B to construct this tower.

It seems like an aqua colored version of 250 w 55th Street on top of a high line-themed base.

You can see the grid squares have curved corners like the base, albeit not as thickly done. Good if they want more open sunlight for the workers.

The detailing in the cladding is still there, it's just that it appears that above the podium the window frames are much large; so there's no need to worry

Agree! This tower will look very nice.

This is what the cladding will be above the base.

I really like it, though I don't appreciate then teasing us with the old design of 35 HY in there.
