30 Hudson Yards (also the North Tower[3]) is a supertall office building currently approved for construction in Manhattan's West Side. Located near Hell's Kitchen, Chelsea and the Penn Station area, the building is a part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project, a plan to redevelop the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's West Side Yards.[4][5][6][7][8]


The groundbreaking ceremony took place on December 4, 2012. Early construction work will focus on building a platform that will cover much of the Eastern Rail Yard, on which much of Phase 1 will sit upon. The platform will be rested on caissons, which will be drilled underground. On December 12, 2013, it was announced that Tutor Perini Building Corp. was awarded a $510 million contract to build the platform.[9]

In 2013, Time Warner announced its intentions to relocate most of its offices to 30 Hudson Yards, vacating its current headquarters at the Time Warner Center, also owned by Related, at Columbus Circle.[10] The move will be done following the building's opening, and when completed, will see Time Warner occupy half the building, below the 38th floor.[11][12]

The construction loan will be closed by the middle of 2015, when the building's construction is expected to start.[2] The building is expected to open in 2018 or 2019.[1]

Architecture and design[edit]

Kohn Pedersen Fox was chosen for the design of the building.[13] Originally 1,337 feet (408 m) tall,[14] later designs of the building show a downsize to 1,255 feet (383 m) tall,[15] making it still the development's tallest building.[16]
