NEW YORK | 50 Hudson Yards (504-522 W 34th) | 985 FT | 58 FLOORS


Yeah, it’s not clear which way the numbering will/would go. On the one hand, it’d be weird for the smallest tower to be #1… but on the other, it would be similarly weird for the numbering to go #2, #1, #3 as you’re walking past.

I get why they want to update the numbering system, the current numbers are fairly clunky. But with 1 through 5 Manhattan West just across the street, they might be making things more confusing. I wish all of the new towers going up along Hudson Park & Blvd used a uniform numbering system, like:

15 HY: 1 Hudson
10 HY: 2 Hudson
35 HY: 3 Hudson
30 HY: 4 Hudson
55 HY: 5 Hudson
50 HY: 6 Hudson
Girasole: 7 Hudson
Spiral: 8 Hudson

Not that you’ll ever get a collection of developers to agree on something like that.


Imo, tower 3 is 50 HY, which is the 3rd office tower.

Tower 1 - 10 HY
Tower 2 - 30 HY
Tower 3 - 50 HY
Tower 4 - 55 HY
Tower 5 - Phase 2 Office Tower


Demo in progress. Just few years ago, old Coach building dominated this area.


Wow. Your shots make 30 hy look enormous and everything else look miniscule. Awesome!


Thanks, 30 HY is enormous.



It seems like Related gave BR a huge deal!


Demo has started on all of the little buildings on the site, but not Coach.


Demo is complete on the tenements on the south and the one where they had the offices and model for hudson yards on the east side.

Looks like they have started on the little ones on the north side.

Scaffolding is finally going up on the old coach building’s north side.

Taken yesterday 7/12


This tower reminds me of that massive tower on Water Street for some reason. Maybe it’s due to the top of the building.


This tower sucks.


blech. Im actually glad BIG’s Spiral will block this.

I agree. This sucks. What a wasted opportunity.

I would have preferred 2 WTC to have been built.

Foster is a DICK!!!


I saw that coming Rob :joy:


What! this is gorgeous for 1973!


whats funny is that from the north it looks like a bloated 3 WTC.
