55 Hudson Yards synthesizes the contemporary, sleek forms of Manhattan's new mega-development with the industrial roots of its neighboring Meatpacking District.
The tower’s strong, orthogonal façade provides a stabilizing force in the dynamic skyline of Hudson Yards, emphasizing the simple elegance of the building’s rational form. A consistent grid of gunmetal both invokes modernism and echoes the historic, cast-iron structures of the neighborhood. Fenestration modules shift in size between the podium and tower fronts while column-free corners and multiple terraces offer enhanced views of the Hudson River, High Line, and New York City.
Highly flexible and efficient, the tower comprises large floorplates with ideal core-to-glass depths and high finished ceiling heights that make the property especially appealing to tenants from the legal, technology and creative industries. It also includes 10,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and rests atop the new 7 line subway extension, making it highly accessible from and connected to the rest of the city.
