There seems to be no stopping this indefatigable Danish starchitect!
One of the largest remaining development sites in the Hudson Yards rezoning, owned by Tishman Speyer, now has official plans, reports the Wall Street Journal.
The Spiral building, at 66 Hudson Boulevard, will stand 1,005 feet to its pinnacle, rising 65 floors and containing 2.85 million square feet overall, including 27,000 square feet of retail.
The tower will cost upwards of $3 billion, and Danish architect Bjarke Ingels of BIG is designing the supertall, which will be laced in bands of diagonal sky terraces.
The site is located between West 34th and West 35th Streets and 10th Avenue, and Tishman is currently seeking an anchor tenant.
Architects: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group
The Spiral is a 1,005-foot-tall office tower to be sustainably constructed in the rapidly developing Hudson Yards district of Manhattan’s Midtown West. A cascading series of landscaped terraces and hanging gardens will define the signature building with readily accessible outdoor space catering to a dynamic, mixed-use urban community.
The tower will comprise 2.85 million square feet, incorporating 65 stories and 27,000 square feet of first-class retail. Designed by renowned architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group, The Spiral’s form takes inspiration from the classic Manhattan step-back as it tapers vertically with green spaces circling from base to top. The terraces will provide each floor with outdoor space and multi-floor atria for dynamic work space flow or unique meeting areas. Center-core open floor plans will allow for flexible configurations, while soaring ceiling heights and virtually column-free floor plates will provide spectacular, unobstructed city and river views.
Located on Hudson Boulevard at the northern tip of the High Line elevated park, The Spiral will occupy an entire city block between 34th and 35th Streets at the heart of Hudson Yards, New York City’s fastest-growing neighborhood. The tower’s 30-foot-tall lobby will front Hudson Boulevard Park, further extending access to urban green space and offering generous ground-floor retail offering.
Directly facing The Spiral’s entrance is access to the newly extended 7 Train, providing an easy commute to Grand Central Terminal and the rest of Manhattan. The tower is in close proximity to the city’s most convenient transportation hubs, including the Port Authority, Penn Station, the Lincoln Tunnel and the West Side Highway, allowing for easy access to all five boroughs and the tristate area.
Rezoned in 2005, the Hudson Yards district is now experiencing an influx of development activity, attracting high-end retailers, restaurants, entertainment and cultural destinations, as well as industry-leading commercial tenants. The Spiral draws its sustainable and landscaped inspiration from the acres of newly developed green space adjacent to it, including the final phase of the High Line and the 550-acre Hudson River Park, with its miles of bike and jogging paths. With a similar focus on sustainability and green construction, The Spiral is targeting LEED certification.
