At the heart of the new Hudson Yards development on Manhattan’s far west side, directly above the development’s public square and gardens, 15 Hudson Yards will stand 88 stories when complete. The building features a two-story glass lobby and a quatrefoil design as it climbs, maximizing views of the Hudson River and Manhattan

Built above parks and rail tunnels

Soon to be among the tallest residential buildings in New York, this tapering high rise will go through a dramatic transformation from a rectangular floor plate at the base to a curved four petal geometry at the tower top. Surrounding the base of the tower are 14 acres of public parks, including the High Line.

On the tower’s north side, structural columns must transfer over an Amtrak tunnel that is currently under construction. WSP USA designed a transfer structure that has been incorporated into that tunnel’s design.
