Possible, but it also has a lot of residential floors. It may not need a huge tenant if these are sold.

It doesn't need a huge tenant. I think there is 1.3m sf of office space. A 500k sf lease would be enough to anchor that.

Yep a bare minimum requirement to start to build which is great, but if they get an anchor tenant leasing a larger amount of space, Moinihan said that he would probably forgo the Condo element of the building.

1000 Foot-Tall Hudson Yards Tower to Include Numerous ‘Green’ Features
http://highrisefacilities.com/1000-f...reen-features/



Quote:
The Moinian Group has revealed new details about their planned 1,000-foot tall, 65-story tower known as 3 Hudson Boulevard. The developer is aiming for USGBC’s LEED Platinum certification and has plans to incorporate wind harvesting, photovoltaic, thermal energy storage and a number of other environmentally sustainable features.

Situated in the heart of the dynamic Hudson Yards District, directly across from the new Javits Convention Center 3 Hudson Boulevard, located at 34th Street and 11th Avenue, the developer hopes their tower will be a gateway for Manhattan’s new West Side and an icon of green architecture for the 21st Century.

Joseph Moinian, founder of The Moinian Group, said in a press release, “Our new mixed-use building at 3 Hudson Boulevard will stand as the pinnacle of elegance along the new Hudson Boulevard & Park. With 3 Hudson Boulevard, you are going to see something truly spectacular.”

According to the developer, 3 Hudson Boulevard will rise as a gently-turning tower of glass adorned with an array of photovoltaic sun screens on its southern and eastern facades. The curtain wall will be comprised of spectrally selective glass with Low-emissivity coatings for enhanced comfort and environmental performance.

3 Hudson Boulevard will provide corporate tenants with more than 1.8 million square feet of high performance, Class A office space that may fetch $85 per-square-foot. At the podium level, floor plates will be over 35,000 square feet with clear lease spans in excess of 60 feet. Tower office floors will be approximately 27,000 square feet with clear spans of 40 feet or more. Office floors will be greater than 14 ft. in height with a 5-foot window module taking full advantage of the views. The office lobby will offer a grand entry experience, gracefully expressed in stone, sustainable wood and illuminated glass.

Architect Dan Kaplan of FXFOWLE designed the building and in January of this year, Avison Young was hired to market the mixed-use property. Construction is estimated to start late next year or in 2015, with a move-in date of 2017.

Glad that the design was kept. Just not sure of the height. If it will be 300 or 323 meters. But I'm happy with either of the two.

New York developer Joseph Moinian is marketing downtown Los Angeles land planned for a high-end retail, hotel and residential project.

Quote:
Moinian, who had planned to build a mixed-use development on 1.5 million square feet (139,000 square meters) at the corner of 11th and Figueroa streets, decided to abandon the project to focus on New York real estate, the person said. He’s planning to build a 66-story skyscraper in the Hudson Yards area on Manhattan’s far west side.
just thought it was note worthy!

Good to know he is going to solely concentrate on this project.

Hudson Hawk: The Moinian Group’s Oskar Brecher Talks Hudson Yards
As director of development for the Moinian Group, Oskar Brecher is leading the charge to shift Midtown farther west.
http://commercialobserver.com/2013/0...-hudson-yards/

In June, the Moinian Group announced its plans for 3 Hudson Boulevard, a 1,000-foot-tall, 1.8 million-square-foot tower between West 34th and West 35th Streets in Hudson Yards. Designed by Dan Kaplan of FXFOWLE, the property will include 1.5 million square feet of office space, 22,000 square feet of retail and possibly as much as 300,000 square feet of residential space. The man behind the Moinian Group project is Oskar Brecher, the company’s vice president and director of development. Across the United States, Mr. Brecher and his team are involved with nearly 10 million square feet of development. The Commercial Observer spoke with Mr. Brecher at his firm’s 3 Columbus Circle office, where he described the 3 Hudson Boulevard project envisioned by the Moinan Group, headed by CEO Joseph Moinian.

Quote:
Tell me about the project on the Far West Side and how it fits into Hudson Yards.
This particular parcel is called one of the four corners of Hudson Yards. By sheer strategic location, it became an important part of the Hudson Yards plan. When Joe bought it, it was not viewed as anything special in terms of how Hudson Yards developed. It turns out, it became very central to Hudson Yards in the sense that three of the biggest infrastructure initiatives all line up with this piece of land.

One is the 7 line extension. One end of the subway line actually comes through the building, so people will exit the 7 line through the basement of the building out into the park. Second—and most people don’t realize this—is that the High Line is going to terminate, when it is fully completed, at 34th and 11th, kitty-corner to the site. Third, there is a new Park Avenue-like street being developed in the city called Hudson Boulevard, and we are facing Hudson Boulevard. So the building is really surrounded by 34th Street, 35th Street and 11th Avenue.

What makes the site so unique by New York standards is that it occupies its entire block. What’s even rarer is that it is occupying three block fronts, which are wide streets. Almost no site in the city has this type of exposure, meaning the building stands all by itself. And the buildings around it are some distance away, making it very visible.

It also allows for an efficient building to be built with a true center core. This building is going to be as perfect from a planning point of view as you can make it.
Quote:
What are the plans for the building itself?
The site of the building is about 1.8 million square feet. The current design is 1.5 million square feet of office space and potentially 300,000 square feet of residential space at the top. But it may come out to be all office, depending on demand. We have a street-level retail segment, which is one of the things mandated in the plan, and we feel street-level retail is going to be a very important feature of the building. The building size and shape are an exceedingly good fit for major tenants.
Quote:
Can you describe your process as a developer for a project such as this?
Clearly the primary basis of determining what we do with a site is the zoning. Zoning was not created in a vacuum, so these buildings that are on the four corners of Hudson Yards have the maximum zoning in Hudson Yards. And that has become a new standard in the city. The maximum is 33 times the floor-area ratio, which is much denser than the old maximum zoning levels were. It turns out, you do need this enormous critical mass to jump-start development in this part of the world.

The other thing you have to look at is the footprint. In this case, the footprint was 50,000 square feet. The plan has some guidelines involved with it. One of them is various setbacks and street wall requirements to create a form that gives the city its density but uniformity. For instance, if you go out on Park Avenue, there is a defined street wall where, if you look up, all of the buildings are virtually the same height. The same ideas were incorporated here to create uniformity.

We have a podium that covers the entire site, and this podium is where we are able to offer to prospective tenants things like trading floor space or showroom space or studio space, depending on which direction they are going. They have high ceilings, at least 11 feet, floor to ceiling.

You don’t want your executives to be on a giant floor with thousands of people. So the architect came up with a solution in which he took the building, and as he made the floors smaller, he created a bit of a pivot. And this will be a very interesting feature in the skyline. In a sense, what he has done—he has designed something that will follow the sun. The sun is at an angle off the street grid of the city, and he corrected that. It’s a very clever design.
Quote:
What are the potential plans for the top of the building?
When it came to the apartments on top that may or may not be realized, we constricted the floor even more because those require smaller floor plates.

At the top of the building, we have a 15,000- to 20,000-square-foot event space, either dedicated to a specific tenant or in the form of a dining club or event space available for everybody.
Quote:
Will there be branding opportunities for tenants?

What we have done is we have wrapped the roof in LED screens, and we will be able to project images either for public art or tenant identification. It will be a very dynamic, active building in the skyline.
Quote:
As you play a hand in the development of the Far West Side, are there areas elsewhere in the city where you see the potential for development?

We have always looked at things in a comprehensive way. In the Financial District, where we are a major owner and operator, we have just finished the W New York Downtown Hotel and Residences. That is one of the main areas we are concentrating on. Also, a development site in Chelsea will be the bookend to projects on the West Side. We have some very exciting ideas about how to develop that property.

Beyond that, we are opportunistic. In other words, if a project comes along that we find interesting and adds to the overall strategy to the company, we will include it. We are just finishing up a hotel on 54th between Broadway and Eighth. It is going to be branded a Hilton Garden Inn and should open sometime this fall. It is almost there; we are very excited about it.

Interesting read.
If the residential component gets realized, the tower could see a slight height increase.

True. I hope Moinian takes that route. I don't see why not since there is a crazy demand for residential

Jez now I'm worried he'll go all office and make it a regular box with a twist. It's perfect as is!

I am not a fan of this building unless it is perceived from one of the corners. The views facing the flat sides make the building look rather bland as the cutout at the top becomes less apparent from that perspective.

I'd like to see Ralph Lauren or Sothebys anchor this tower. The area suits both of them.
