New renderings are out today of developer Joseph Moinian’s forthcoming 1.7 million-square-foot tower near Hundson Yards, the New York Post reported.  The 1,000-foot tower is designed by Dan Kaplan of FXFOWLE and will twist from its base to catch the sunlight. “It has a subtle, elegant spin and only rotates the 22 degrees as you go up,” Kaplan, said. “It’s enough to give it a distinctive form, but not so much that it contorts the building.”

Catching the sunlight will also add to the building’s efficiency, since the project will be feature solar-paneled awnings, or “eyebrows,” that simultaneously act as shades for the south-side building tenants occupants, while generating electricity with photovoltaic cells.

The building, which is located at 3 Hudson Boulevard, between West 34th and 35th streets, will also have several roof terraces and a rooftop deck with shielding from the wind.

“He’s been a magician in making this design efficient and beautiful and LEED Platinum,” said Arthur Mirante, tri-state president of Avison Young, which is heading up the marketing for the Moinian Group. Mirante added that asking rents for the base will start in the $80s per foot and rise from there and that there is a possibility for residential on the top floors. [NYP] —Christopher Cameron
