Two New Residential Towers Coming To Hudson Yards

Construction will soon begin on the second phase of Hudson Yards development with two new residential towers being developed between 29th and 30th Streets. 

Both buildings will share the rectangular-shaped parcel where a parking garage and 4-story warehouse used to sit.

A 61-story skyscraper by Douglaston Development will rise 695 feet tall at 601 West 29th Street, just west of Eleventh Avenue. 

The tower will contain 931 rental apartments within its 730,000 square feet of residential space with 9,300 square feet of retail space at street level. 
601 West 29th Street will include a lobby with concierge service, a fitness center, a sports simulation room, a music room, and an outdoor public terrace on the second floor. 

The sixth floor will have a residents-only outdoor terrace with a lounge and an outdoor swimming pool. The 40th floor will have a garden terrace connected to a private residential library. 

The transfer of 123,000 square feet in air rights from the Chelsea Piers Sports Complex will enable Tower A to rise 695 feet tall. 

Completion of 601 West 29th Street is planned for mid-2021.

In an adjacent lot, construction on a 45-story tower rising 545-feet between 11th Avenue and 12th Avenue will begin at 606 West 30th Street. This project is being developed by Lalezarian Properties and designed by Ismael Leyva.

606 West 30th Street will total 312,000 square feet with 260 rental apartments, 15,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and a 56 space underground parking garage. Tower B will top out at 545-feet courtesy of 4,600 square feet in air rights transferred from Chelsea Piers.
