Is that the spiral-ish one?
When did they change it?

Yea, it's been changing design a lot lately. The last model we saw was from a few weeks ago:



55 is on the far left and 35 is just right of it.

As per CTBUH news release:
http://www.ctbuh.org/DesktopModules/...1&Article=1696

Quote:
At a height of over 780 feet (238 meters), the unobstructed views over the Hudson River and of midtown will be stunning throughout the tower floors, the developers promise. The building contains lease spans of up to 35 feet (10.6 meters), implying that it is intended for tenants requiring large floor plates, such as financial trading firms.
I wonder where they got that height figure?

@ CTBUH's Skyscraper Center Page they have the page updated but wrong developer listed

Time to update the height of this tower!

780 ft is the official height

Finally somebody said it. We definitely seem to be reintroducing the concept of simple clean modern design in the current decade instead of the random-clad primadonnas from the '00s.

55 Hudson Yards Rendered In Full



Quote:
The LEED Gold-seeking building's 10-story base holds floorplates of 44,000 square feet, while the floors in the 41-story tower measure 28,000. A press release says that the tower's design is "defined by its indoor-outdoor spaces, SoHo, and early modernism." Roche told the Journal, "The thing I wanted to avoid was another twisted building. 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." The tower has a terrace on the 10th floor, and private, double-height terraces were "carved" into the building in various locations.

Related plans to start construction of 55 Hudson Yards, which will be located beside the new pedestrian greenway Hudson Boulevard on the block north of the platform over the railyards, once the space is 30 to 40 percent pre-leased, which should be by next January. If all goes as planned, it will be ready for occupancy by the end of 2017.

I'm in love with that lobby.

Also I love how the exterior ironwork echos traditional SoHo architecture. Probably my favorite building of the bunch.

This tower is not as good as the formerly proposed One Hudson Yards or World Product Center, but it's not bad.

Those base windows are gorgeous...and I mostly hate boxy modernism.

I do like this evolving 55 Hudson a lot more as we see the renders, and I understand the reasoning to be a little more traditional while still being very stylish. It's boxier than the other HY towers but not quite BOXY... not boring and the base is very appealing and unique for a more traditional style building. I think seeing eventually what 50 Hudson looks like, will it contrast some or be in line with what this tower represents? We know that the Girasole, the third of the HY area office towers will be a stunner while also being more in line with traditional, with some angular impressiveness.

I'm happy that 55 Hudson gets a boost from 710 to 780.. for 51 floors the floor plates are still substantially higher than normal. C'mon, Related though.. you can get it up to 800ft if you really want!

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! I can't stand how prominently they wrecked the Equinox by adding that tumor..er, hotel. I love the way that 55 is progressing, gone from a critic to a fan... but there is NO serious way the changes to 35 work on an aesthetic basis. I wrote more on this on the 35 Hudson (Equinox) thread. It still hurts however viewing it here!

early 2015 groundbreaking, maybe...

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

http://online.wsj.com/articles/veter...wer-1401846491


A rendering of 55 Hudson Yards, in foreground. Construction of the 51-story building could begin in 2015. BY-ENCORE courtesy of Related/Oxford

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.

...

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.
An early 2015 ground breaking would partly vindicate the 2015 timeline diagram (reposted below) that media websites were still using last month (IIRC). Remember that 55 Hudson already has it's foundations built, courtesy of the #7 subway below-street level infrastructure that's now covered with a concrete slab (& construction trailers, etc.)


Note that the 2014 frame in the above diagram shows something already rising from the concrete slab, which I think will NOT happen this year...

BUT, the HY NY FB has a plug for 55 HY on June 4th:

This building puts its hands in the air like it just doesn't care.

Love it!

One of the first true skyscrapers I can say is in a mid-century modern revival style. The architects are really coming back to their original roots.

You could really imagine some Mies or Corbu furniture in this:

Nice tower indeed. Simple design with an interesting cladding as a way to say enough of those crazy looking designs. Nice addition to HY.

I really like the angles and unique takes on the main four HY towers (we'll see what happens with the Equinox, but not liking as I have made clear the change from clean iconic tower to cluttered, spread out mess to accomodate a hotel they could more organically integrate into the tower itself, but I digress lol) and the way they've done this making it more traditional but with a nice contemporary edge I'm really liking it more and more. I think what really will make the whole thing work is contrasts but probably of a more traditional type in the office towers just outside the main first phase of HY... 55, Hudson, 50 Hudson, and whatever the public address is for the Girasole.
