Now with the build-out of the eastern portion of Hudson Yards' just about fully complete, Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have turned their sites to the western railyard which is tentatively set to be decked over and receive acres of new parkland in addition to eight new high-rises. The just-opened (and now temporarily closed) Edge observation deck cantilevering off the side of 30 Hudson Yards features an interactive queuing process that provides a look at the notable innovations and construction techniques the plan utilizes throughout its unique, railyard-topping site. Additionally, exhibition provides several first glimpses of the designs planned for the unbuilt western half of the railyard site.

In 2018, The Wall Street Journal has gotten word that the big-name architects of Santiago Calavatra and Frank Gehry have been tapped to design residential towers along the western railyards. Early prep work and pile boring machines can now be seen at the western yards readying for construction of the railyard-covering platform on which acres of open space and a half-dozen new towers will rise on.
Further details on the buildings are not yet available, but the news confirms that Hudson Yards is shaping up to be a design aficionado’s paradise. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group’s Hudson Yards is the largest private project ever undertaken in the country and has generated much attention for its scale and mixture of office, residential, retail, and cultural opportunities taking shape over a 28-acre site. The office towers rising at 10 and 30 Hudson Yards were designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, as was 55 Hudson Yards. The luxury residential tower at Fifteen Hudson Yards was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group. 35 Hudson Yards, the development’s tallest residential building, was designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill.
