3 Hudson Boulevard

3 Hudson Boulevard is a 63-story tower that will set new standards for urban developments. Sited on Manhattan's West Side in Hudson Yards District, the tower's twisting and tapered form transitions from the urban grid to capture optimal solar orientation, allowing arrays of photovoltaic sunscreens integrated into portions of its all-glass curtain wall façade to generate power and employ a wide range of sustainable strategies. Soaring to a height of over 1,000 feet, the tower provides an eight-story podium and retail at street level, the tower features 1,500,000 square feet of area including Class A office space, terraces, views of the Hudson River, Hudson River Park, and the High Line. The tower is crowned by a rooftop club and skygarden planted with trees and sheltered by glass windscreens. 3 Hudson Boulevard will offer convenient access from multiple transportation nodes including the 7 line extension, Port Authority Bus Terminal, heliport, ferries, the West Side Highway and the Lincoln Tunnel.
