Related Companies has tapped architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro to design the first residential building at Hudson Yards and aims for it to be completed by 2015, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The building would rise to 800 feet at the northeast corner of Eleventh Avenue and 30th Street with about 700 units. Related said it hopes to complete the building around the same time the first office structure on the site, which has already sold 600,000 square feet of space to Coach, is finished.

The Journal said this is a new kind of assignment for Diller Scofidio. The firm is best known for aiding in the design of the nearby High Line and typically focuses on institutional designs.

In addition to the High Line and the Hudson Yards residential structure, the firm is also working with the Rockwell Gorup to design a planned arts center just east of Hudson Yards. [WSJ, 2nd item]
