One of the many towers to rise in Related's massive Hudson Yards complex has yet another new look. New renderings revealed for 50 Hudson Yards, to rise at the complex's northeast corner along 33rd Street and Tenth Avenue, depict an approximately 62-story-tall, 1,068-foot-high tower with three distinct, rather square components. A previous model for the in-flux site depicted a boxy, step-like structure that has since been, shall we say, refined? According to YIMBY, the new structure will contain 2.3 million square feet of floor space, with ceilings generous in height and "massive floor plates" indicating that the building in question may be used solely as commercial space, rather than mixed-use or residential. While the architect for the tower has not yet been revealed, YIMBY speculates that KPF, whose designed other commercial projects for the developer, is behind the new plan.
UPDATE: An anonymous tipster says this is not a KPF design. Have any intel on who the architect is? Send it to our tipline.
