10 Hudson Yards

10 Hudson Yards is one of the first commercial towers in New York City built largely out of concrete. Consisting of a concrete shear wall and concrete superstructure, concrete accounts for 98% of the tower’s total weight. 10 Hudson Yards won the New York City Concrete Industry Board (CIB) Annual Award in 2016.

Construction on the 1.7 million square foot building began in December 2012 and was completed in 2016. The 52-story, 895-foot office tower is part of a mixed-use development consisting of residential, commercial, retail, and public space, as well as 14 acres of open space. The site encompasses six city blocks totaling 28 acres. Two of the blocks are over active rail yards that remained operational during construction.

The tower’s structure consists of a high-strength reinforced concrete frame, featuring post-tensioned beams and filigree slabs to accommodate open floor spans. A central concrete core provides lateral stability and stiffness, while the structure itself is founded on caissons socketed into bedrock. This unique floor system provides a clean look which can remain exposed in open office spaces. The angled tower, with a 15-story-tall atrium midway up its height on the south face, was geometrically challenging and has set new standards for concrete construction. 10 Hudson Yards is designed to achieve LEED® Gold certification from the United States Green Building Council.

10 Hudson Yards is the first structure to be completed in the overall Hudson Yards large-scale redevelopment project, which is expected to consist of 16 skyscrapers containing more than 12,700,000 square feet of new office, residential, and retail space. The first structure was completed in 2014.
