Hudson Yards' 3 Hudson Boulevard has broken ground today (November 3, 2017) after the planned tower lost its future supertall designation. A recent height reduction brought the future office tower's height to 940' and 53 floors, down from 1,050' and 66 floors. Center core base floors will now be spread over 50,400 SF with 18' ceilings while tower floors would be spread over 40,000 SF. 3 Hudson Boulevard will also feature 12,600 SF of retail which will include a restaurant and cafe, a large outdoor terrace on the 8th floor, conference spaces and executive offices on the top 2 floors, as well as automated parking. 3 Hudson Yards is being developed by the Moinian Group and was designed by FXFOWLE. The tower is located at West 34th Street and 11th Avenue, across the street from the Javits Center. The Moinian Group purchased the land from Verizon in 2005 for $54.788 million and was most recently being used by the MTA for the NO. 7 subway construction before the groundbreaking. Completion is expected for 2021.
