The race to the top continues. The New York Observer reported that the second office building at Hudson Yards will be either the second or third tallest building in the city.

Designed by KPF, the building does not yet have an anchor tenant or a date for when ground will break. It will rise 1,300 sky-scraping feet, falling just behind One World Trade Center and 432 Park Avenue. It will rise taller than the Empire State Building.

There will be an open-air observation deck at 1,100 feet with some special amenities located in the feet above.

“It’s more akin to the Rainbow Room to be honest,” a Related spokesperson told the Observer. “We have a ballroom, restaurant and bars above the observation deck that offer panoramic views. And yes, we are looking at locating some of those above the 1250 mark.” [NYO] — Zachary Kussin
