JLL was privileged to work on many parts of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment in New York City. It is the largest private real estate development in the United States by area, generally spanning area between 11th and 12th Avenues in the Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea neighborhoods and constructed over the Long Island Railroad’s storage yard of which we monitored the construction of the East Platform which forms the ground floor of the development.
The other buildings we provided monitoring for are:
Tower A (30 Hudson Yards), and Retail
The tower consists of the core and shell construction of a 2,886,631 sf, 69-level office Tower A; approximately 1,008,901 sf, 9-level Retail Podium building and approximately 10,800 sf, 3-level Retail Pavilion building located at the Hudson Yards development on Manhattan’s west side.
The tower rises as a faceted volumetric block with east walls tapering/slanting towards the west and a chamfered northwest elevation. The floors above decrease gradually due to the tapering/slanting façade design. A spectacular observation deck will cantilever beyond the building walls and will be the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere.
The Retail Podium, located south of Tower A, a 1,000,000 sf retail center, brings together an unparalleled collection of shopping and dining on 8 levels.
Tower C, also known as the South Tower, located at the corner of 10th Avenue and 30th Street at 501 West 30th Street in New York City, anchors the southeast corner of the Hudson Yards Development. The High Line elevated park to the south of the site runs approximately north to south, terminating at West 30th Street with an entrance/exit point on the southern side of West 30th Street.
As befits an anchor tower, the glass façade is spectacularly angled with one part of one facade seeming to fall away from the building. The building is 49 stories containing some 1,847,996 sf.
