Now that these towers have topped out, a good indication of the distance from the deck...

Developers Top Out $3.8B Manhattan Skyscraper
BlackRock and Facebook are slated to occupy the 58-story office tower in Hudson Yards.

Feb 16, 2021


Quote:
The developers behind New York City’s fourth-largest office tower have laid the final beam on the 58-story skyscraper in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards district, as the city’s office users eye an eventual return to the workplace.

Related Cos., Mitsui Fudosan America and Oxford Properties Group observed the topping out of 50 Hudson Yards with a ceremony on Feb. 12, crowning an effort that began when the partners closed on $3.8 billion in financing for the project in 2017. Slated to open in 2022, the 1,011-foot-tall tower will span 2.9 million gross square feet.
Quote:
Occupying an entire block at the northwest corner of 33rd Street and 10th Avenue, the tower forms part of the Hudson Yards mega-project on the Far West Side. The property is already 75 percent leased to tenants including BlackRock, whose new global headquarters will occupy 970,000 square feet, and Facebook, which has claimed 1.2 million square feet.

The LEED Gold candidate designed by Foster + Partners will feature 94 elevators and large floor plates that can accommodate 500 or more employees per floor. Amenities will include dedicated ground-level lobbies, common sky lobbies, outdoor terraces and executive valet parking, as well as direct access to the No. 7 subway.

City blocks go vertical as Manhattan supertall nears completion


By Adam Williams
February 22, 2021


Quote:
Taking up the physical footprint of an entire city block and rising to a height of 308 m (1,011 ft), Foster + Partners' 50 Hudson Yards recently topped out in Manhattan, New York City, with the ceremonial placing of its final steel beam. The supertall skyscraper is now well on the way to completion, with big-named firms including Facebook expected to move in by 2022.
Quote:
"The building is divided vertically into three sections, with the largest floorplates at the base," explains Foster + Partners. "It steps back to create two terrace levels on the upper floors, respectful of the city's urban grid and a characteristic feature of high-rise design in New York.

"The ground level lobbies feature two abstract sculptures by acclaimed artist Frank Stella, celebrating the incredible creative heritage of the city. As you rise to the top, the tower offers fantastic views of the Hudson River and the 'Vessel' to the west, and the Empire State Building and City skyline to the east."
Quote:
Structurally, 50 Hudson Yards consists of a concrete core and glass facade – and it's a lot of concrete and glass. So far, 117,200 cubic yards (roughly 3,164,400 cubic ft) of concrete has been poured and 11,460 glass panels have been installed, along with 26,800 tons of structural steel. It's also only the second construction project in the United States to use a Despe self-climbing cocoon, which is a kind of protective cage that moves up and down the building to improve worker safety.

Once the skyscraper is finished sometime in 2022, Facebook, investment firm BlackRock and others will take their place on expansive floorplates that Foster + Partners describes as "buildings within a building" and can fit over 500 employees per floor. Workers will navigate the cavernous interior using 94 elevators.

Hard to believe that this behemoth tower is the 16th tallest in the city (counting built and U/C buildings). It would be LA's 2nd tallest by a hair.

It's becoming a supertall skyline, not just a skyline with supertalls.
