HistoryEdit

The project was presented to the public for the first time in summer 2011. The tower is a part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project, and is located at 11th Avenue and West 30th Street.[8][9] The building design was changed from a cylindrical to a rectangular prismatic shape in December 2013.[10]

The construction of 35 Hudson Yards began in 2015 and was completed in 2019.[8][9] A building permit application was filed in January 2015.[11] In July 2016, the project received $1.2 billion in construction financing from UK hedge fund The Children's Investment Fund Management.[12] 35 Hudson Yards topped out in June 2018.[13]

The building opened on March 15, 2019.[14][15] The hotel will open in June.[16]

Architecture and designEdit

The building was designed by David Childs, of the architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Originally featured as a 900-foot (270 m) tower with setbacks at various intervals, a redesign was revealed in early December 2013 to feature a cylindrical "tube." The redesign increased the height of the tower to 1,009 feet (308 m).[10][11] Interiors were designed by Ingrao with Eucalyptus cabinetry and Quartzite countertops.[17]

The tower was designed as a residential and a hotel tower.[18] 35 Hudson Yards contains 11 floors dedicated to hotel space along with a sky lobby, a ballroom and a spa.[9][19] A plaza is located at the foot of the tower and the tower also contains medical offices.[20]

The first floor serves as the building's lobby. The lobby contains Flowers, a tapestry by Swedish artist Helena Hernmarck.[21] Retail is on levels 2, 4, and 5 and will consist of an outpost of the Hospital for Special Surgery focused on physical therapy and a SoulCycle.[22] Six floors of office space starts from level 8 that serve as the new headquarters for Related's subsidiary Equinox Fitness.[17] The hotel, also managed by Equinox, has 212 rooms (including 48 suites) across and levels 24 through 38.[16] Levels 3, 6, and 7 are home to a 60,000 square feet (5,600 m2) gym and spa also operated by Equinox. The upper 36 floors contain 135 condominiums.[11] Building amenities include a gym, yoga studio, meditation room, a lounge, and a golf-simulator.[17] In August 2019 new restaurant, Electric Lemon, opened on the 24th floor.
