Along with yesterday's announcement that Neiman Marcus will be the flagship retailer at The Shops at Hudson Yards, new renderings of the megaproject have revealed some design tweaks throughout the massive site. New York YIMBY spotted some minor changes to 35 Hudson Yards, the David Childs-designed residential tower that will hold 100 condos and a 150-room hotel. The building's facade, formerly curved, will now besighboxier. The renderings also depict the new, formerly noted design for Diller Scofidio + Renfro's 15 Hudson Yards, which has ditched its center "corset" feature in favor of a smoother facade.
The new renderings also give some tantalizing glimpses of Hudson Yards alongside the hotly-anticipated swooping Zaha Hadid residential development at 520 West 28th Street.
YIMBY also provides the first views inside the newly-announced Neiman Marcus which will occupy one-quarter of the one million square feet of retail space at The Shops, spanning between 10 and 30 Hudson Yards.
The west side is quickly becoming a pedestrian-friendly swath of city. The High Line will link 10 and 15 Hudson Yards, and an easement of sorts will connect nearby Manhattan West and the High Line.
Work has started on 10 Hudson Yards. 15 Hudson Yards is expected in 2017, and the rest of Phase One is expected to wrap-up the year following.
