Smile NEW YORK | 3 Hudson Blvd (The Girasole) | 940 FT | 53 FLOORS

The GiraSole











New York, NY
Client: The Moinian Group
Completion: 2011

Situated in the heart of Manhattans newest neighborhood, the dynamic Hudson Yards District, 3 Hudson Boulevard, "The GiraSole" will be a gateway for the West Side and an icon of green architecture for the 21st Century. From its sky gardens to the reaches of the new Hudson Boulevard Park, this new 1.6 million square foot tower will be surrounded by green. Soaring to a height of over a thousand feet, it will offer unparalleled views south and west over Hudson River Park, the High Line and the new park and development of the Hudson Rail Yards. A solar power-generating tower, "The GiraSole" will set a new standard for mixed use development by uniting premium corporate offices and the most exclusive residences with the state of the art in environmentally sustainable design. The project is on track for LEED Platinum certification.

Here is an old article...


Between The Bricks


By LOIS WEISS
November 9, 2005

Joseph Moinian is another West Side fan who is putting his money where his mouth is.

We hear Moinian contracted to buy yet another Verizon building on the east side of 11th Ave. opposite Javits.

This is one of the area's four super corners, where sources say he intends to construct a soaring, 1.5 million-foot mixed-use tower that will include retail, hotel, offices and residences.

The 47,000-foot site at 555 W. 34th St. is next door to his Infinity Court apartments.

David Noonan and Jimmy Kuhn of Newmark handled the brokerage, just as they did for Moinian's Verizon purchase on 11th Ave. between 42nd and 43rd Streets.

Moinian is working there on a design for another 1.5 million square footer, next to the Costas Kondylis-designed apartment building he bought as plans from Jules Demchik and which is currently rising skyward.

They look like they will complement one another very well. That will be one hell of a view down that street when they are done-talk about looking like a canyon!

Those two will definitely compliment each other very well. I can't wait to see these projects move forward.

Wow, these are both really beautiful. Along with the NYTimes Building, BOA, TrumpSoHo, WilliamBeaverHouse, 7WTC, etc... NYC is collecting some VERY nice buildings. IMO, dispite some REALLY awful exceptions, most of what's going on in NYC is really nice... in fact, i'd even go as far to say that NYC is at the forefront of American Architecture right now.

Relationship of this tower with various westside developments:

All of those developments have their own threads.

This is 100% AMAZING!! The fact that it came out of nowhere made the surprise even better. Sherwood has a nice neighbor, thats for sure.

Good news.

But considering the size and the location of this building couldn't they have come up with a more original design...something like the Chicago Spire or 80 South Street.

I think its very bold. It stands out, makes people on the street look up. I for one am not a fan of the CS design. This works well for my taste.

Oh, yeah, they're such exciting looking... rectangles

Doesn't it ever occur to you that spires add variety and excitement?

When integrated properly into the overall design of a building and not just ploped on haphazardly.

They already started digging at the site! I guess they want to be the first ones with the planned hotels rooms in the area.

I like it, it kinda reminds me of something Foster would design. It also has no spire, NY needs a supertall with no spire... Not saying that spires are inherrently bad, but a flat top is nice for a change.
