Tishman Speyer to Build ‘Spiral’ Skyscraper at NYC Hudson Yards

Bloomberg February 8, 2016

Tishman Speyer unveiled a design by Bjarke Ingels for a 65-story skyscraper in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards area that will have a spiral of landscaped terraces wrapping around its facade, allowing for outdoor space on every floor above its six-story base.

The tower, to be called the Spiral at 66 Hudson Boulevard, will rise 1,005 feet (306 meters) and contain 2.85 million square feet (265,000 square meters) of floor space, Tishman Speyer said in a statement Monday. Situated a block east of the northern terminus of Manhattan’s High Line park, once an abandoned train trestle, the design will form “an ascending ribbon of lively green spaces, extending the High Line into the skyline,” Ingels said in a video posted on the website (www.thespiralny.com) for the project.
