55 Hudson Yards, designed by A. Eugene Kohn and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), is a 1.3-million-square-foot office building located at the intersection of Hudson Yards, the High Line and Hudson Park & Boulevard. As the newest addition to the collection of towers to be located at Hudson Yards, the LEED Gold-designed building will stand 780 feet tall with the entrance located just across from the new No. 7 subway station.

55 Hudson Yards is the southwestern anchor of the new Hudson Park and is one of the only office buildings in the entire city to have a lobby that opens directly onto a park. The architects further enhanced the appeal of this great outdoor space by designing a dramatic outdoor terrace overlooking the park on the building’s tenth floor. The building’s design also provides future tenants the opportunity to carve private, double-height terraces into the tower in flexible locations.

The unique façade of 55 Hudson Yards is inspired by the revitalized High Line district, the manufactured cast iron façades of the Soho buildings and the best of early modernism. The matte metal and stepped articulation of the window frames present a strong and solid exterior appearance, which is modern but uniquely New York in character. The building references the solid exterior of the city’s classic cast iron buildings and also shares their expansive floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize interior light.
