Flickr user ILNY_ brings us an update on future office tower 55 Hudson Yards, and the update is this: currently, 55 Hudson Yards is a huge rectangular hole in the ground. Soon, though (in 2017, if the estimates prove correct, so...relatively soon), it will be a (glassy, of course) 51-story skyscraper designed by A. Eugene Kohn and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. Japanese real estate investment firm Mitsui Fudosan acquired a 92.09 percent stake in the building in December 2014, paying Related $259 million. It broke ground shortly after, in January.
