50 Hudson Yards is a 58-story and 1,011 ft tall building being planned as part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project in Hudson Yards, Manhattan. The planned building is to be located to the north of 30 Hudson Yards, and on the east side of the Hudson Park and Boulevard, adjacent to 55 Hudson Yards. It will total 2.9 million square feet of commercial space. Located at the southwest corner of 34th Street and 10th Avenue, it will replace the drive-through McDonald's that had long occupied the space.
In April 2014, new renderings of a 62-story, 2,300,000-square-foot (210,000 m2) building were released. The tower was shown at a height of 1,068 feet (326 m). The building's plans were also changed; the building, originally meant to be step-like structure with a white facade, was updated to reflect a three-part structure with three rectangular components, each one smaller than the one below it.
In December 2016, a revised plan for the building was released with asset manager BlackRock set to take 847,000 square feet (78,700 m2) as the anchor tenant. New renderings for the building, designed by Foster + Partners were revealed. In September 2017, developer Related Companies obtained $3.8 billion in financing for the new tower, including a $1.5 billion loan. Mitsui Fudosan owns a 90 percent stake in the building. Bank of China, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Sumitomo Mitsui and Wells Fargo contributed financing for the tower.
Work on the foundation of 50 Hudson Yards began in May 2018. In August 2018, the height of the building was increased slightly, from 985 ft (300 m) to 1,011 ft (308 m). In January 2019, the developers unveiled two unnamed starbust-shaped sculptures by American artist Frank Stella that will sit in the building's lobby.
