The design is constantly evolving. The last iterations can be seen below:





As the Hudson Yards development evolves, a new 1,000 ft+ tower at the 2 Hudson Boulevard site now called 50 Hudson Yards has been revealed:

Revealed: 50 and 55 Hudson Yards


50 HY at left

Related has new renderings up at Time Warner Center depicting The Hudson Yards, and in addition to dramatic changes for the Equinox Tower, a model depicting 50 and 55 Hudson Yards has been revealed. As YIMBY reported in early October, Related has expanded their presence in the neighborhood dramatically, acquiring the entire block to the north of the railyards. The two new buildings increase the site’s scope by nearly 4 million square feet.

...55 Hudson Yards will still stand a similar height to the Coach Tower, which will be approximately 900 feet tall. 55 Hudson Yards will be joined by 50 Hudson Yards, aka ‘The McDonalds Drive-Thru Tower,’ which is another major addition to Related’s assemblage. That building will crack the 1,000 foot mark, and appears slightly shorter than the Hudson Yards North Tower.

More renders and details as they emerge...

Related to Start Work on Hudson Yards Platform in January (1)
http://www.businessweek.com/news/2013-10-17/related-to-start-work-on-hudson-yards-rail-platform-in-january[/URL]




On the opposite side of Hudson Boulevard, Related plans to build a 62-story skyscraper on the site of Coach’s current headquarters at 504-522 West 34th St. The company needs to acquire adjacent parcels before starting that building.

The two sites straddle a park being built by the city that will split the block between 10th and 11th avenues in two. Hudson Boulevard will become “the Park Avenue of the West Side,” Cross said
Projected completion date for the Entire Eastern Half of the HY Development, including the Boulevard Portion.

The eastern half of the Hudson Yards development, totaling 10 million square feet, probably will be completed by 2018

This site potentially can have a total of 3 m sq ft for development by transferring the unused development rights from One Hudson Blvd.

Yes, but it seems that Related doesn't transfer any rights from One Hudson Blvd on this site. We will have another GiraSole tower. Farewell to the idea of the 500m tower.:eek:hno:

62 floors is far from necessarily being a supertall. In fact, there are only a handful of supertalls existing or under construction that have as few as 62 floors. This is probably not a supertall at all as proposed.

These are very preliminary plans. Anyway, Coach is 905' and it's less than 50 stories.

Yea I Agee! This is the first time I created a thread & I have no idea how it ended up being under super tall. Lol

Maybe one if the mods can change it to high rise proposed..

I will say this, even if rights are not transferred from 1 Hudson Blvd, this site currently has 2.3 m sq ft.

All depends if this will be a mix use with residential component, it can be super tall with high ceilings w/ low floor count.

With the purchase of the McDonalds lot, this site will certainly have a very large foot print so I dunno how this will play out. :cheers:

It would be such a waste if the HY North Tower (408m/1337ft) ends up tallest. I mean the BIGGEST (skyscraper) development in America surely deserves a signature tower. I'm tired of the "average" supertall height in New York (I know, I'm spoiled). With all those supertall proposals popping up (7 400m+ towers!!) it's really time for someone to make a bold statement and propose a 500m+ über. Barnett had the chance (to be honest I'm more concerned about the design over there), and blew it.

New York city has developed from a 500 to a 700 to a 1000 and now to a 1300ft plateau. We need a singature tower! :rant:

Sherwoods' 2.5m sf site sits just north of McD's. Who knows what's in store there.

Anyway, it is far too early to speculate about the McD's site. I wonder if Related is in negotiations with huge tenants for that site. It appears to have lured at least 1 huge law firm (probably White & Case) to Extell's old site.

NewsCorp is the next big fish, as it will seek over 1m sf.

62 floors of office in NYC can easily be a supertall. The BOA tower is only 54 floors and 1,200 ft. (with cheater spire! :D). Even a residential in NYC can go supertall at 62 floors as long as it's luxury condos, not rentals. Let's see where this one leads. ;)

Agreed about news corp. They have a lot of companies they have under their umbrella as well and a chance to have all of them under 1 roof. It's possible they will require a lot more sf & only Ross can give them a great deal.

The 62-floor figure is definitely preliminary. The tower will probably have a custom configuration for the as-yet-unknown anchor tenant, and leasing is a long ways off; I doubt work begins here before the first phase of the Hudson Yards is finished.

When construction does begin, I would bet on the McDonald's Tower becoming the tallest in the neighborhood.

If these schematics show how the space will be used, then the McD's site actually could be in the 1,000 to 1,250 foot range. It appears that the entire block will be occupied by a structure with a tower rising above it. That large structure could be a trading floor (Citi?), television studios (NewsCorp/Fox ?), or another massive retail component, which is where Related claims to seek revenue, together with residential. It, as it now appears, this area will grow very rapidly, the 750knof retail planned won't be enough to serve this area.

Please not that discussion again. :sleepy:
There isn't even 1 tower standing in HY yet.

I can´t believe the sheer amount of possible supertalls currently in the pipelines for New York City. It´s like a dream came true. The skyline is finally going to use it´s bold and full potential it has.

Can't see the schematics
