Architects Chosen for First Hudson Yards Residential Tower

The team at Kohn Pedersen Fox is already hard at work on its design for a pair of towers at Hudson Yards, with Coach set to move into the first one in 2015. Developer Related wants the site's first residential building to be done around the same time, and Related's just chosen the architects at Diller Scofidio + Renfro for the project. The Journal has the deets on the building: it will be around 800 feet tall and have 700 units. DS+R, which has never built a skyscraper, would work with the Rockwell Group on the design. The DS+R-Rockwell team is also working on an arts center to the east of the tower, and Elizabeth Diller tells the Journal they're "very conscious of the adjacency to the High Line," so until renderings are available, we can imagine what that means for the building's design.

Smile NEW YORK | Hudson Yards (residential) | 800 FT | FLOORS

This is great news. A little more from the article posted above...

From the High Line to Living High

March 11, 2012
By Eliot Brown

Quote:
An avant garde New York architecture firm that helped design the High Line now gets to design a tower over the elevated parkland. Diller Scofidio + Renfro has been tapped by developer Related Cos. to design the first residential building at the West Side rail yards, the 26-acre site near the Jacob K. Javits Center where Related plans a cluster of new towers.

And it'll be tall. Jay Cross, who runs the rail yards development for Related, says the planned building on the northeast corner of Eleventh Avenue and 30th Street would likely have around 700 units and be roughly 800 feet tall. The developer wants it done around the same time of its first office building on the site, in which Coach Inc. has agreed to buy about 600,000 square feet of offices, in 2015, he says.

For Diller Scofidio, which would be working with the Rockwell Group design firm, the job is a new type of assignment. It typically focuses on the institutional—the firm redesigned Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, and is designing Columbia University's new business school—and hasn't done a skyscraper.

It was part of a team that designed the High Line, and it's also designing, with Rockwell Group, a planned arts center immediately to the east on the rail yards, giving it a lot of projects right around the planned tower.

"For us it represents and opportunity to do an ensemble urban project," said Elizabeth Diller, a founding principal at the firm. "We're very conscious of the adjacency to the High Line."


Here's the location of the tower:

Fantastic news. I'd imagine if Related wants this done around the same time as the Coach tower, and will be around 800 feet tall they're gonna have to get the back rolling pretty soon. We can probably expect a render pretty soon, and given that Related got a loan for the smaller 32 story building across the street seemingly pretty easily, I think this building will come together quickly.

Is this on the part that they don't have to construct the platform over the tracks?

This does not require a platform.

Again, if Related wants this done by 2015 they're gonna have to really get moving.

Third High Line Phase Sets Tone for Neighboring Development
Diller Scofidio + Renfro will design the first residential tower for Hudson Yards, a megaproject adjacent to the acclaimed New York City park.


March 14, 2012
By Fred A. Bernstein


Quote:

The first two phases of the High Line, the elevated park by James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, have helped spur an architectural renaissance on Manhattan’s lower west side. But the planned third phase—which will wrap around the 26-acre Hudson Yards development—may be even more transformative. That’s not only because the northern section of the line, with its level change (the railroad tracks descend to the ground at 34th Street) and sweeping curves along the Hudson River, promises to be the most dramatic section of the park. It’s also because the Related Companies’ Hudson Yards development, which is expected to contain some 13 million square feet when complete, is at the moment largely a blank slate. That means phase three of the High Line has a chance to set the architectural tone.

Literally. Just as Friends of the High Line was releasing renderings of phase three this week, Related announced that it had chosen an architect for the first residential tower in the Hudson Yards: Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The firm, whose offices overlook the High Line, has never done a high-rise building. Partner Ricardo Scofidio says he is excited about the commission. "One can argue that most architects do their best building when it’s the first commission of a type,” he says. “You're not pulling details out of a drawer."

That is the plan, but not the final design of the tower. It will be around 800 ft., could be a little more. Shown in the image below, the tower has a slanted roof.
In both images, it cantilevers over the "Culture Shed".

Related to Start Second Hudson Yards Portion by Mid-2013

By David M. Levitt
September 12, 2012

Quote:
The portion of the project to start next year will include a second office tower and a 750,000-square-foot retail complex, along with a hotel and some residential units, he said. Both eastern sections should be completed by 2017, according to Ross.

The plans call for an upscale dept. store. With Nordstrom going elsewhere, you have to assume they're wooing Neiman Marcus.

I have a very difficult time believing Neiman's would launch its first Manhattan location in such an undesirable area, especially as they already have Bergdorf's on 5th Avenue. If a department store were to locate in the Hudson Yards, I would think it would be something foreign and something new to the US market, to actually provide a splash and give recognition to the neighborhood. Harvey Nichols is a stretch, but who knows... I guess any truly luxury tenant is? (Coach is certainly not luxury and actually quite mass-market, which is why the HY are so suitable).

Just past the Culture Shed, on the 30th Street side of the site at Eleventh Avenue, is the eastern half’s only purely residential tower, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, with David Rockwell. It’s an architectural griffin, grafting together rectilinear rental units on the lower floors with flower-petal condo layouts up high—about 680 apartments in all. The fantastically idiosyncratic bulges and dimples join in complicated ways that make the glass façade look quilted.
This tower's design certainly appears to have been made much more interesting.

This may be the best looking of the group, and I like all of them.

Quote from the article...

Quote:
In the first, $6 billion phase—scheduled for completion by late 2017—the tallest tower will top the Empire State Building, and even the shortest will have a penthouse on the 75th floor.
