I jest checked out the FXFOWLE website & have no idea if these renderings are new versions.. But anyway, I'll just share it. The twist on this tower is great. #excited

3 Hudson Boulevard | FXFOWLE
http://www.fxfowle.com/projects/51/3-hudson-boulevard/



When 3 Hudson Boulevard is completed in 2016, the new 1.6 million-square-foot tower, which is targeting a LEED Platinum rating, will set new standards for urban mixed-use developments. Sited in the Hudson Yards District along the new Hudson Boulevard Park, the tower's twisting and tapered form will transition from the urban grid to capture optimal solar orientation, allowing arrays of photovoltaic sunscreens integrated into portions of its all-glass curtain wall façade to generate over 800,000 kWh per year in power.

Two notches in the upper third of tower, which soars over 1,000 feet, indicate the shift in program from Class-A office space to exclusive residences, increasing light and views of the Hudson River Park, the High Line, and the new Hudson Rail Yards development.

The tower will be crowned by a rooftop club and sky garden planted with mature trees and sheltered by glass windscreens.

I like the cutout, creating a sort of 'sky courtyard'. But the overall shape seems to vary in the different renders. I still don't have a strong feel for how it'd look.

I think that the design hasn't changed at all. The tower looks different from various angles.

Only thing that would make it better is for the height to increase some, any possibility? Otherwise love all the angles and while it isn't groundbreaking it will make a proud, spiffy new addition to the Manhattan skyline... the best thing is how the now almost desolate looking midtown West Side is going to look fantastic as all of this is built out!

These pics gave me a better understanding of it. The dramatic perspective of the renders made the angles look sharper, and almost like the top was three-sided.

Well now I feel dumb. I always thought this tower twisted slightly when it really just goes from a rectangle to a rhombus.

All the place there deserve to be cleared of old buildings. There is literally nothing worth saving there. I walked the whole length of the 11th avenue around this site - it is nothing but old warehouses and some stand alone 3-4 story buildings. Built the new towers there all over the place.

I would even redesign the Javits center as well. This space can be better utilized.

In time, I think Javits will be redeveloped into a few supertalls and a brand new convention center will rise in Sunnyside, Queens.

I hope.

Thanks. Anyway, some of the perspectives are very cool. The top will look spectacular.

450 Hudson Boulevard is owed by Alloy, but they may sell it to Related.

360 10th is a site owned by Frank McCourt.

514 11th is a site owned by Larry Silverstein.
