Should be 55 Water Street
It's at around 3,5msqft, as same as One WTC.

Yeah, 55 Water is about 3.5 or 3.7 million square feet. Big fella, and has peregrine falcons:

It's actually only 2.6 million sq ft, a far cry from 1 WTC and 55 Water Street (3.5 million sq ft). My intuition leads me to believe that because 30 Hudson Yards sets back a decent amount as it ascends, while 1 WTC doesn't quite as much. Does anyone know what the base floor is for 30 YD, 55 Water Street and 1 WTC??

well the addition 100 foot height helps a little, but ya its the rate it tapers. In fact what I should have been looking at is height occupied which is 1258 for 1 WTC and 1121 for 30 Hudson. The floors near the top of 1 WTC still have solid floor space where as 30 Hudson is pointed.

Combine the 127 more occupied feet with less dramatic slendering as it rises and it makes alot of sense why 1 WTC has 1 million more SQFT.

I asked the question before I looked into it deeply. 30 Hudson is so huge, but I think being closer to the river and in a newly developing area makes it look bigger. 1 WTC is a tall tower that makes the other tall towers near it look, well not tall.

I agree. Just look at the size of the contruction workers compared to the building.

I believe the largest office building after 1WTC and 55 Water st is the MetLife building with somewhere around 3.1 sq/f, then come Google's building with about 2.9 sq/f.

Stairs for the mall.




Complex roof support structure.




The tower is separating from the mall. You can see first columns for the south side.




South side columns.




North East corner.




Neiman Marcus Mall.









First mall cladding.

ok so, this is really what threw me off. I was looking at the total base of construction for 30 hudson yards, not understanding the contruction plan enough to realize 1/2 of the base would become Neiman Marcus mall (the wonderful new pictures cleared this up for me).

The tower itself will be 2.5 million or so. However physically connected to it will be the mall which is 1 million square feet. So I assume they are separated because there is no functional overlap, but the "connected" building complex will be 3.5 million SQFT+ which puts it at about the same as One WTC and 200k behind 55 water. Connected building complex might not even be the right word. They share the same foundation and are architecturally integrated. I would be curious if in the future they combine the mall in publicity for the tower to give themselves more bragging rights. If they did that they could say 2nd or 3rd largest building in NYC SQFT wise.

Indeed. By the way the glass facade of 10 HY looks so pristine.

Thanks for the pics. This building is completely insane! Just look at the construction elevator tower which seems to be built for up to six construction elevators! This says a lot about the amount of materials they have to bring in and the projected speed of the internal fit out works...

Wow I really liked seeing the shot of the base and the train tracks. Really gives you a sense of the crazy engineering going on here. It really feels like the pace of construction is fast with this building.

I think the prime view of midtown once all this stuff is finished will be on the Hudson southwest of Hudson Yards.

You will be able to see all of Hudson Yards, the angle will show Manhattan West clearly, ESB, and you should be to see the central park skinnies too, the upper 1/3 or 1/4 of 1 Vandy should be visible. Not sure on Chrysler, you may need some elevation to be able to see any of it.


edit- this link shows kinda where I am talking about
http://www.***********.com/detail/vi...tage/529431353

Maybe looking 15 more degree to the left or so.
