A New Look at the First Two Massive Hudson Yard Towers

New, 28 comments

The bigger the development, the more numerous the renderings. At least that's how it seems with Hudson Yards, as New York YIMBY has discovered another new rendering of the mega project. Created by MIR, the image shows the massive KPF-designed towers lighting up the evening sky over the west side. The north tower will rise 1,300 feet, with an observation deck jutting out at 1,100 feet, and the south tower will peak at 876 feet. The rendering leaves out the other two Phase One towers, one by David Childs and one by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. A groundbreaking was supposed to be set for sometime in November, but that may have been delayed due to Hurricane Sandy, as we can't find a finite date for it. Have intel? Hit up the tipline.

UPDATE: MIR sent word that this rendering is actually not a new image. "It features an old design that is not how the client intends the Hudson Yard towers to be. The image was commissioned by the architect for an in-house presentation." Curbed apologizes for the error.
