Currently in construction, this 243,000 square foot mixed-use rental tower (commercial, community facility, residential) gives a glimpse of Hudson Yards Phase II, at the point where the new Hudson Boulevard becomes a neighborhood park. The building’s brick base responds to the park’s scale, and grounds the pedestrian experience with a sense of timeless materiality. As the shaft rises, the proportion of glass to masonry shifts, and the top floors become a large-scale steel/glass urban gesture, bold and memorable. In general, the overall composition of brick and steel elements recalls the richness of detail in earlier New York apartment buildings, yet reflects the contemporary character of its entirely new Hudson Yard setting.
