Construction is now underway on the Moinian Group's Hudson Yards supertall known as 3 Hudson Boulevard. The 66-story building will bring just under 2 million square feet of office space the neighborhood when it is complete sometime towards the end of next year.
The development firm hasn't yet secured an anchor tenant for the building, according to Bloomberg. The head of the firm, Joseph Moinian, has already committed $100 million to laying the foundation of the building, and told Bloomberg that he is confidant the building will have a main tenant once the structure is above the ground.
"We are in negotiations with several large tenants for 3 Hudson Boulevard as a possible venue for their new headquarters space," Moinian said, in a press release. "Completing the foundation only fills the market with confidence and added enthusiasm that this spectacular building, on the best site in the Hudson Yards District, will be ready for occupancy, timed perfectly to the large space users looking to relocate to a premier, Class A tower."
The FXFowle Architects-designed building will stand 1,050 feet tall when it's complete. The space within the building is divided as follows: 1.5 million square feet of Class A office space entirely free of interior columns; 300,000 square feet of upper floor space (on the top 14 floors of the building) that includes meeting rooms, terraces and entertainment spaces; and 20,000 square feet of retail.
The building is located right next to the Hudson Yards 7 Train stop and will be LEED Platinum certified when complete.
