About 30 Hudson Yards

30 Hudson Yards will anchor the Hudson Yards development, touted as the largest private real estate development in United States history. Located on the west side of Manhattan, Hudson Yards is to become a new center for retail, commerce, and culture for the area. The whole development is intended to be an integrated “city within a city,” incorporating residential and office buildings, streets, parks, utilities, and commercial space into one complete whole. Built on top of an active rail yard, and located steps away from a recent subway extension, Hudson Yards will be thoroughly incorporated into the larger urban fabric.

As the largest planned building in the development, 30 Hudson Yards stands out not just for its size, but for how it relates to the nearby towers through a series of setbacks and ledges. Rising from a shared podium, 10 and 30 Hudson Yards have a mirrored relationship; they gently taper away from each other, creating a “v”-shaped negative space between them. This strong visual interaction is meant to anchor the dynamic architectural presence of the development.

Unlike most buildings in the complex, the tower will be devoted primarily to office space. It will feature column-free floor plans and floor-to-ceiling glass in order to maximize surrounding views, as well as a cantilevered observation deck that will be open to the public. Several sustainable design solutions will be present on site, including organic waste collection and on-site energy generation, resulting in an expected LEED Gold certification and a 30 percent increase in energy efficiency when compared to the average New York City building. As the mainstay of a development that seeks to redefine Manhattan’s west side, 30 Hudson Yards is poised to make a significant and enduring mark on The Big Apple.
