Ahead of its spring 2019 debut, Hudson Yards’s first residential building, 15 Hudson Yards, has unveiled a new suite of amenities that will be located 900 feet above ground. Skytop as this sky-high amenity space is known, will feature the highest outdoor residential space in New York City (also take a VR tour of the space here). This terrace will be enveloped by a 60-foot-tall glass screen wall and offer views of the Hudson River. The terrace will also have carved wooden planters, containig 14-foot-tall white oak trees, that will provide additional seating.
The outdoor space will be flanked by two event spaces on either side. The lounge will provide indoor seating, and the dining room space will have a catering kitchen, a bar, and a dining table that seats up to 18 people.
Skytop is part of the 40,000 square feet of amenities on offer at 15 Hudson Yards. Most of the amenities will be located on floors 50 and 51 of the 88-story building designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with the Rockwell Group. These amenities include an aquatics center that features a 75-foot swimming pool, a whirlpool, and a private spa with treatment rooms; a fitness center outfitted by the Wright Fit; a beauty bar; and wine storage along with a tasting room, among several other features.
Sales at 15 Hudson Yards launched in 2016 with apartments asking from just under $2 million. Currently available apartments range from $3.9 million for a two-bedroom home and go up to $32 million for a duplex penthouse. Developers Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group will debut 15 Hudson Yards along with the Public Square and Gardens, as well as the Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards, in the spring of 2019. However, the first set of residents will begin moving into the condo tower at the end of this year.
