The anticipated LEED Gold, 1.3 million gross-square-foot building was designed by acclaimed global architect A. Eugene Kohn of Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and is on schedule to open in 2018. The building is defined by its indoor-outdoor spaces, early modernism-inspired exterior design and exceptionally efficient interior space planning. Positioned at the intersection of Hudson Yards, the High Line and Hudson Park & Boulevard, 55 Hudson Yards is one of the few office buildings in the entire city that opens directly onto a park.
