Related moves forward with Norman Foster’s Hudson Yards tower

The filings account for only a portion of the block-long building

It’s been more than a decade since the rezoning that gave way to the Hudson Yards Special District, and a new neighborhood is finally beginning to emerge on Manhattan’s far west side. The latest news from the megaproject: developer Related Companies has officially filed partial plans for the supertall tower going in at 415 Tenth Avenue at the corner of 34th, reports YIMBY. (Until about a year ago, it was the site of a McDonald’s.)

The office tower, to be known as 50 Hudson Yards, will ultimately stand 985 feet tall, holding 2.9 million square feet of office space spread across 58 stories. Designed by Foster + Partners and co-developed with Oxford Properties Group, the building will be divided into three distinct sections stacked on top of each other, like enormous, graduated blocks. The gaps between the sections will act as outdoor terraces.

This particular filing, though, is only for a portion of the block-long building. The application is for a 12-story, 256-foot-tall, 887,600-square-foot commercial development. Per the plans, the development would have retail on the subcellars and first two floors, topped by 10 stories of office space. The basement would also house security and tenant storage, while YIMBY says the ground floor would have a porte-cochere.

Adamson Associates Architects applied for the permits, though Foster + Partners is the firm overseeing the design.

Other Related developments underway include 15 Hudson Yards, which unveiled its swanky listings this past October; 55 Hudson Yards, a 51-story office tower currently under construction; and 10 Hudson Yards, which, as the first building to be completed in Manhattan’s newest hood, welcomed its initial batch of tenants in back May.
