15 Hudson Yards
Location: NEW YORK, USA
Complete: 2018

 

The 70–story residential tower, comprising 106 affordable rental and 284 condominium units, anchors the southeast corner of Hudson Yards East at 30th Street and 11th Avenue. Opening in 2018, the tower will be the first residential building to open at Hudson Yards.

Utilizing cold–bent glass to achieve its shape, 15 Hudson Yards, dubbed ‘Morph Tower’ challenges conventional material expressions of glass and the archetypal image of the crystalline glass tower. The resulting surface softens the tower and complements the adjoining Culture Shed; glass here is expressed as fluid and supple.

The tower morphs into a quatre leaf at the top, shaped to maximize panoramic views in all directions. The solid stone lobby extends the entire first floor, framing a view of the adjacent High Line. Amenities include a rooftop terrace, health club and indoor pool, business center, dog spa, chef kitchens, and party and screening rooms.
