The residential tower that will eventually rise 1,000 feet once complete is making its upward ascent at 35 Hudson Yards. A set of construction photos captured by Flickr contributor NyConstructionPhoto shows that the mixed-used building is only about about eight stories above ground, and though its currently overshadowed by neighboring projects that are part of the Hudson Yards development boom, it is well on its way toward becoming the area’s tallest tower.
