It’s been quite some time since murmurs of a towering skyscraper at the northeast corner of Eleventh Avenue and 34th Street were first whispered. Since Verizon sold the 47,000-foot site to developer Joseph Moinian in 2005, an Olympic/football stadium was slain, a 13-acre rail yard was decked and at least a dozen skyscrapers have sprouted in the area once known as the far west side.
Developers have since taken on Related’s more market-friendly name of Hudson Yards for the new business district. It has made leaps in terms of accessibility with the 7 train’s $2.4 billion extension opening in 2015. The line’s terminal station passes under Moinian’s property and was the primary cause of the tower’s long gestation. Now, with the line open and the city’s economy still chugging along, it appears the time is now for the mixed-used monster known as 3 Hudson Boulevard to rise.

The 63-floor, 1.8 million-square-foot tower will soar -more than 1,000 feet tall from a full block site bounded by Eleventh Avenue and Hudson Boulevard, across from the Javits Center and 55 Hudson Yards. FXFOWLE are the architects and renderings were first released in 2007 calling for a LEED Platinum-certified office/condo tower topped with sky gardens. A pivoting and tapering design was conceived and the torque’s angle is to capture a more optimal solar exposure.
Building permits were filed in 2014 for the building’s first 15 floors including its 7-story podium. Those high-ceilinged floors at the base will have 48,000-square-foot floor plates that can readily accommodate trading floor space, showroom space or studio space depending on the direction of the tenant. Per the building’s official website, above will be more typically-sized office floorplates averaging just north of 30K s/f per floor. Then there will be the more exclusive “executive floors” from levels 48 to 63 that will be more boutique in nature and have access to a health club, swimming pool and entertainment space. Topping it all off will be the “sky club” that will have event spaces, dining rooms and bars, meeting rooms and terraces protected by glass windscreens. Noticeably absent from the website is any mention of the residential condominiums which were initially envisioned.

Earlier this month, a new rendering was published on FXFOWLE’s website showing a more streamlined design topped by a 300-foot spire that would make the building among the tallest in the city. A new daytime rendering has also been posted on site depicting the same design without the spire. The building’s foundation was mostly finished during MTA’s construction of the 7 line extension meaning superstructure could begin relatively soon. According to FXFOWLE the tower is to be finished in 2021.
