One Hudson Yards
New York, NY


The Related Companies selected Davis Brody Bond to design this new 33-story residential building on the south side of 30th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues adjacent to the High Line. Awarded to our firm in a design competition, the 240,000 sf building is contiguous with the Related Companies’ ongoing development of Hudson Yards, the largest and last remaining area of Manhattan to be revitalized. The new tower serves as a gateway to the northern border of West Chelsea. Complementing its surrounding structures with a mix of glass and masonry, the base of the building includes a mix of retail and amenity spaces.

The design concept presents an updated Chelsea masonry building envelope, wrapping the building in a curtain wall ‘ribbon’ — creating a visual connection between the High Line and the building exterior. The selected materials carefully mitigate the different architectural vocabularies that are present around Hudson Yards, picking up the more traditional masonry construction prevalent in the Chelsea neighborhood while using the ‘ribbon’ concept as an opportunity to tie the new building into the prevailing glass curtain wall aesthetic of the overall Hudson Yards design.
