3 Hudson Boulevard Could Be Hudson Yards' Tallest Building

Back in the 1920s, Manhattan developers were in a race against each other to build the tallest skyscraper in the city. While that gave us the Woolworth Building, Empire State Building, and Chrysler Building, today's skyscrapers are creating a modern “race for the sky,” with 3 Hudson Boulevard making a leap towards the top.


Designed by FXFOWLE, the new renderings of 3 Hudson Boulevard show the addition of a 300-foot spire that would make it the tallest building in the neighborhood. The Moinian Group, the developers on the project, have not confirmed or denied if the spire is definitely going to be included in the building’s final design. However, if it is, it would push the building’s height past that of 30 Hudson Yards.

Although the plans are not finalized, the tower portion of the building is expected to have 66 floors and include 1.8 million square feet of space. The bulk of of the building will be used as commercial space, although there is no plan against the creation of residential space, and the base will be covered in five floors of LED screens.

While foundation work for 30 Hudson Boulevard began in May of 2016, there is no completion date set yet.
