Codina has been involved in the construction project for the Hudson Yards, a new NY neighborhood located in western Manhattan, with the manufacture and installation of the Paxton wire mesh.
The architectural project developed for the new Hudson Yards area of ​​New York includes new equipment such as a public park, a multidisciplinary artistic center or a shopping center, in addition to six skyscrapers.

The building:

55 Hudson Yards is one of those new skyscrapers. Its construction started in 2015 and was originally scheduled to be completed in 2019.
55 Hudson Yards is a mixed-use skyscraper intended for offices and a 150-room hotel. The ground floor is designed to locate 3,000 square meters of commercial spaces. The building rests on the new 7-line metro extension, making it highly accessible and connected to the rest of the city.

The 55 Hudson Yards is an energy efficient skyscraper, and is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification when completed. It also has destination selection elevators, column-free exterior corners with floor-to-ceiling windows offering unbeatable views of the Hudson River, High Line and New York City, and 3.7m-high ceilings.

The facade:

The facade is inspired by the High Line district, the cast iron facades of the Soho buildings, and the best of early Modernism. Matte metal and staggered articulation of window frames present a strong and solid exterior appearance. These characteristics give it a modern image along with an exclusively New York character. While the building references the solid exterior of the city’s classic cast iron buildings, it shares its expansive floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize interior light.

PAXTON architectural wire mesh:

Codina has participated in the construction project for the 55 Hudson Yards skyscraper with the manufacture and installation of 2,605 m2 of PAXTON architectural wire mesh, stainless steel. The fastening technique has been specially tailored for the project.
