50 Hudson Yards, New York

By Editorial staff

50 Hudson Yards is a 78-story office building in New York designed by Foster + Partners.
Covering an entire block, the tower is a distinctive piece of the city that mindfully sits within New York’s urbangrid.
The building acts as a gateway to New York’s vibrant new neighbourhood – Hudson yards – offering a direct underground connection to the adjacent subway station. The LEED Gold-designed tower forms an integral part of the Hudson Yards district.

The cladding of the entrance lobby has been done using flueted and double wave “S” walls, in Versilys Gold (Monte Altissimo, Seravezza).
Hudson Yards gives back to the city new shops, restaurants, bike parking, and transport connections at street level for around 280.000 sqmt.
Its lively public entrance lobbies are animated by two large-scale artworks by Frank Stella, which celebrate the creative heritage of the city and draw people into the building.
The tower offers panoramic views of Manhattan, with the Hudson River to the west and the Empire State Building to the east. A communal amenity on the 32nd floor features a variety of meeting and event spaces. The top of the tower features a domed stainless-steel lighting installation, designed in collaboration with Jamie Carpenter, which catches the light during the day and illuminates the building at night.
