Spiral’s first construction elevator descends to 66 Hudson Boulevard in Hudson Yards, Manhattan
Exterior work is beginning to be completed on The Spiral, a super-tall 66-story commercial located at 66 Hudson Boulevard in Hudson Yards. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Tishman Speyer, the 1,041-foot-tall tower will produce 2.85 million square feet of office space and is expected to cost nearly $3.7 billion. Turner Construction Company is the general contractor, Banker Steel supplied the steel works, R&R Scaffolding Ltd. provided the BMU equipment and Permasteelisa is the contractor for the floor-to-ceiling reflective glass panels on the building, which occupies an entire city block between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues and 34th and 35th Streets.
At the time of our last update in December, the construction lift on the south elevation had just started to be dismantled. Now the assembly has been completely removed, leaving a void in the curtain wall that will soon be filled.
The secondary winch on the north side should be dismantled soon once the interior work is fairly advanced.
More metal railings have been installed on the exterior spiral terraces, while landscaping and shrubbery for each of these spaces are expected to arrive in the warmer months.
Further floor-to-ceiling glass panels were also added on the ground floor. The ones in the photo below are on the corner of Tenth Avenue and West 35th Street. The full six-story podium will house a lobby with ceiling heights reaching 28 feet and entrances along Hudson Boulevard East and Tenth Avenue, as well as 18,000 square feet of retail space.
The Spiral is currently over 50% leased, and CBRE recently helped Turner Construction Company secure a 75,000 square foot 13-year lease. The general contractor is expected to move its global headquarters from its current location at 375 Hudson Street to Hudson Yards. Other committed tenants include Pfizer on 746,000 square feet, Alliance Bernstein on 166,000 square feet and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP on 531,000 square feet.
YIMBY last reported that The Spiral will likely complete construction in the second half of 2022.
