NYC is home to some pretty impressive feats of architecture. From the world’s skinniest supertall skyscraper to the highest apartment in the world, there’s no shortage of impressive buildings in the concrete jungle.
And still, another one might be on its way with a proposed supertall skyscraper, known as 360 Tenth Avenue, for Midtown West. The enormous commercial office space complex would be sandwiched between One Manhattan West complex and Related Companies’ first phase of Hudson Yards.
The property was sold to McCourt Global from Sherwood Equities and Long Wharf Real Estate in 2013 for $167 million.
The supertall skyscraper would directly affix to the newly constructed $50 million Moynihan Connector and Moynihan Train Hall.
Though no official height has been announced, New York YIMBY believes the rendering appears taller than One Manhattan West (995 feet tall). Other sources share the height is expected to reach around 1,000 feet.
360 Tenth Avenue would span 1,000,000 square feet of Class A office space. To clarify, NYC uses a grading system to demonstrate an office building’s quality level, A being top tier and descending in quality to Class C.
Designers Skidmore Owings & Merrill are working on the project to ensure the space would be complete with the latest environmental, health and safety components. The firm has designed some of the world’s most notable buildings like the One World Trade Center, Pearl River Tower in Guangzhou and Chicago’s Willis Tower.
If all goes to plan, construction would begin on 360 Tenth Avenue in 2024.
