YIMBY examines the views from the spiral of 66 Hudson Boulevard in Hudson Yards, Manhattan

YIMBY went to take in the views from The Spiral, a 66-story commercial skyscraper located at 66 Hudson Boulevard in Hudson Yards. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Tishman Speyer, the 1,041-foot-tall structure will produce 2.85 million square feet of office space and is expected to cost nearly $ 3.7 billion. Turner Construction Company is handling the construction, Banker Steel provided the steel work and Permasteelisa was the contractor for the floor-to-ceiling reflective glass enclosure of the property, which occupies a full block between the tenth and eleventh avenues and 34th and 35th streets.

Since our last update in July, facade work has been completed on the tower and work has moved to terraces and interiors.

Photographs taken from the stepped exterior terraces of the lower half of the building provided stunning views of the Midtown skyline with nearly all of the notable tall buildings in sight. All the skyscrapers and supertalls surrounding Billionaires’ Row, One Vanderbilt, the Chrysler Building, Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, Residential Building at NoMad, New Yorker Hotel, and Manhattan West are the most prominent features when we look east.

There are also unobstructed views of the World Trade Center and the entire Lower Manhattan skyline to the south with the narrow Verrazzano Bridge also peering behind the cluster of buildings that make up the Financial District. .

Looking west, tenants will have a perfect view of the expansive pedestrianized Hudson Yards plaza with Thomas Heatherwick’s ship taking center stage and now adorned with warm colored Christmas lights on every level. The other mix of office and residential buildings with their distinctive curtain wall designs added to the colorful and dramatic sunset as it descended to the southwest. The summer months will see the sun set higher on the horizon, directly across the Hudson River. There is also a good vantage point of the Jacob K. Javits Center and the new construction lining Eleventh Avenue.

Some of the outdoor terraces are already covered with ivory and other green shrubs. Below is an example of a green wall on one of the lower floors above the podium.
