@ Citybooster

No worries, 35 Hudson hasn’t changed! At least not recently. lol.

I know it gets so confusing with all these number names for all these towers in the Yards.

The new design is for 50 Hudson Yards.

Thanks V_G... I can breathe a little better about 35(I call it Equinox... people always call buildings by what they associate it with. I doubt anyone is going to go by all the numerical numbers for the HY towers)but now what the fudge has happened to 50? It's a two headed tower now... I know it's a placeholder because Related cannot help to change again the design as I'm sure they will. It's really taking me for a loop though, don't know what to make of it!

Not so sure if this is a placehlder, but the new design is a huge improvement. More elegant shapes and this fits in much better than a stepped tower IMO.

If they're not placeholders I guess that's okay, although shorter they look better than the original.

The twisted tower looks about ~800 feet whereas the shorter one maybe ~600. Still nice additions.

I did like the size of it originally... maybe more height goes to the West Tower when Phase 2 gets under way. The twisty one is nice, still kinda trying to size up the smaller one.

Where did all of the square feet go? The new design looks half the size of the first...

It's just spread out into 2 towers instead of 1 which is connected by 1 huge base.

I do like the design of the torque tower but just wish they will decide to make it taller and they can absolutely do better for that 2nd short tower and maybe then I could live with it as the final product.

It would be even better if they just decide to build that torque tower as a standalone with a huge base, sort of like Silverstein’s planned HY tower. If they stack the residential component on top of the office portion it can yield a very tall tower that could easily reach 1,200 – 1,300’ tall and that would be epic.


Whatever the case, it seems they have decided to make the Phase 2 Office West Tower into a supertall and has decided to go a little shorter for the 50 HY site, which is fine and kind of makes sense so they can just concentrate filling the office space already going into the market now being created by 10, 30 and 55 HY.

By the time Phase 2 Office tower will be ready to start, they can just focus finding tenants then which at that point would be less of a challenge.

Anyway, I am confident that we will see more designs moving forward for this site before it is said and done.

The new version is ugly as hell! Why? Why? Why?
The old one looks so much like a 21 century re-interpretation of The Rock. It was beautiful.
This is so sad. It looks like nothing now. The two parts don't mix well together. It's an eyesore.

Can these Hudson Yards developers make up their mind? A new day, a new HY building gets redesigned. It doesn't help that every redesign is worse than the last. Honestly bodes badly for HY Phase II and all the stunners in the render. I didn't think 50 HY could get uglier than it already was. Guess I was wrong!

Neither actually, it's 895' and 52 stories, and mainly due to a sloping roof.

There's someone on Skyscraperpage I'm sure is Robert or Lex (listed as JR Ewing there and very Walpole/ Lex like))and according to him he's been told by someone at Related that the apparent current two towers on one base configuration isn't happening... when they can secure a definitive major client it will be one tower, and a supertall. I really hope so, because it was driving me nutz because it just looked so off.

That is great news!! It would be a waste dividing up that site for a 2 tower set up. That site is meant to be supertall for just offices. There will be loads of residential being created in Phase 2 anyway. That twisty residential tower would be perfect for phase 2 btw.

Cheers!!!

Plus they have enough of a residential component in 15 and 35 HY (Culture Tower and Equinox) in Phase 1 HY. Then again, knowing how fickle Related has been so far, who knows what they will do until it goes up, lol! It does though seem like common sense will rule with what develops with that McDonald's lot tower. Keep fingers crossed, guys!

Damn! I really liked the previous boxy white version. It would have really contrasted with the blue glass of the rest of the complex!
