30 Hudson Yards (also the North Tower[4]) is a super-tall office building currently under construction in the West Side area of Manhattan. 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 Yard.[5][6][7][8][9] As of July 2018, it is the third tallest building in New York City.


The tower's base

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.[10]

In 2013, Time Warner, now WarnerMedia, 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.[11] 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.[12][13]

The construction loan was closed by the middle of 2015, when the construction started.[14] The building is expected to open in 2019.[1][15] By January 2016, the structure's first few aboveground floors were already complete.[16] Construction of the observation deck at the top of the tower began in April 2018.[17][18] The observation deck was nearly complete by mid-2018.[19] The building is expected to be completed in early 2019.[20]


Architecture and design[edit]

Kohn Pedersen Fox was chosen for the design of the building.[21] Originally planned to be 1,337 feet (408 m) tall,[22] the building was later downsized to 1,268 feet (386 m) tall,[23] making it still the development's tallest building.[24]

The building will feature a 80-foot (24 m) observation deck that juts into the air.[25]
