NEW YORK | 55 Hudson Yards | 780 FT | 51 FLOORS




I remember when this was supposed to be the most boring design of the neighborhood. Funny how things change.

what’s up with these black windows?? exhaust fans or broken windows needing replacement?


My guess is mechanical equipment including exhaust behind them.


There was a utility structure on the southwest corner of the plot before the building began. I think it was constructed as part of the 7 train extension. 55 was constructed around it and cladding was put over it to match the building. The higher dark areas must be utility related.


Ohhh, I completely forgot about that. Yeah, that explains it perfectly. At least the ones at the corner and near the bottom. I assume the ones near the top of the podium are for building mechanicals.


This building has a kind of retro look and feel that I like.

Anyone know why they don’t finish that last 30 - 50 feet of curtain wall at the top? I’ve been looking at this for what feels like a few months waiting for them to finish that


Right. It feels like it’s dragging.


Probably a hold up at the factory. Looks a little different in the renderings.
