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.
