New Construction in Hudson Yards
The office spaces themselves, will offer high ceilings, efficient column-free floor plates, exceptional branding opportunities, and 360 degree views. There will also be a rooftop club, sky garden with large trees protected by glass windscreens, a “sky club” on the top two floors, with swimming pools, terraces, event spaces, meeting rooms, and areas for dining, drinking, and lounging.
Leed in Design
Designed by FXFowle Architects, one of the unique features of the new construction in Hudson Yards is the twisting design near its top. The design will allow the buildings’ photovoltaic sunscreens to capture maximum sunlight. These sunscreens which are integrated into the glass facade will generate 800,000 kilowatt hours of energy per year.
In order to attain Leed Platinum certification for the building when it is completed, the developers of this office space are including these building design amenities:
- wind harvesting
- rooftop farming
- heat recovery
- solar shading
- photovoltaic electricity
- regenerative elevators
- energy-Star efficient appliances
