HELL'S KITCHEN — Workers broke ground on Hudson Yards’ new office tower at West 33rd Street and 11th Avenue on Wednesday morning, the building’s developer said.
Hudson Yards, the 28-acre development on the far West Side, will include five office towers when it is complete, according to its website.
The first commercial office tower, 10 Hudson Yards, future corporate home of Coach, L’Oreal and the German software company SAP, will be completed this year, with tenants moving in in 2016, spokeswoman Jessica Scaperotti confirmed.
A. Eugene Kohn, the building’s architect, described the design of 55 Hudson Yards as “extremely rational.”
“While its neighboring buildings are more sculptural, the building achieves its beauty through its unique gunmetal grey facade and proportions,” he said in a statement.
