Obviously Related's Hudson Yards is at the bottom, this tower will rise where it says 'Extell', directly to the north of this tower will be the Girasole, and across the street Sherwood Equities tower will rise.

thanks for clarifying this. This will become an amazing cluster of skyscrapers/supertalls.

Here's a shot of the 34th St Station construction. The One Hudson Yards (WPC) site is located where excavation is still visible:

JLL joins hunt for Hudson Yards tenants

image hosted on flickr



Quote:
A top level team from Jones Lang LaSalle is set to join the hunt for West Side tenants after being tapped by Extell to lease its new 1.7 million square foot Hudson Yards tower.

Derek Trulson, Frank Doyle and Randy Abend will lead the effort to fill the new tower that Extell is calling One Hudson Yards. “There have been few things more exciting in my 25-year career in Manhattan real estate than being part of the emergence of a vibrant, new commercial district,” said Doyle. “We are pleased to represent Extell in leasing One Hudson Yards, which will be the first project delivered within the Hudson Yards district.”

Extell announced yesterday (Tuesday) that it would revive its plan to build the office tower that will occupy the eastern side of 11th Avenue, between 33rd and 34th Streets, facing a new four-acre park and sitting behind the entrance to the new Hudson Yards No. 7 subway station.

...

According to Gary Barnett, president of Extell, “If you looked at a map of the Hudson Yards district, our site is dead center, smack in the middle. “In addition to great architecture and a superb location, we’re also offering the most competitive rents in the Hudson Yards district.”

Derek Trulson, managing director with Jones Lang LaSalle, said, “One Hudson Yards will rise on the most strategically situated site in the up-and-coming Hudson Yards district. This state-of-the-art office tower will benefit from having direct access to the No. 7 line subway station, the beautiful new Hudson Boulevard Park and the main 34th Street corridor.” Trulson said the team has already begun targeting high profile, large scale tenants looking to establish a flagship presence in the new Class A tower.

The building was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and will feature a pointed tower with a glass and metal curtain that will wrap the floor plates then peel away from the tower at the base, according to Extell. “The diagrid structure is revealed three-dimensionally as it reaches the ground with lobby entries and storefronts set between large diagonal steel members, dramatically juxtaposing the monumental scale of the tower with the finer textured pedestrian surfaces,” read a statement from the company.

The building will obtain LEED-certification and offer “leading-edge telecommunications and energy management systems,” high speed elevators and a state-of-the-art security system, according to Extell. A spokesman for Extell said construction would get underway once half of the tower had been pre-leased.
"Pointed tower"? I think this one's definitely a supertall!

I absolutely love what we've seen so far of this building. This area will be all glass towers in a decade or less, so the 3d exoskeleton like Hearst Tower, will be a nice break from that.

Extell looks like they nailed another one.

That render looks pretty good. I like the cladding and the steel structure.

Something good comes around... Even more, we're talking about that Extell is currently constructing high quality buildings in the city.

Reminds me of Hearst Tower, but taller. Did Norman Foster design this?
