The Lyra NYC Curtain Wall ends at 555 West 38th Street in Hudson Yards, Manhattan

Curtain wall installation nears completion on Lyra NYC, a 52-story residential skyscraper located at 555 West 38th Street in Hudson Yards. Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects with SLCE Architects as official architect and developed by Rockrose, the 570-foot-tall structure will produce 598 rental units ranging from studios to two bedrooms. Site C GC is the general contractor for the property, which is located along Eleventh Avenue between West 38th Street and West 39th Street, directly across from the Jacob K. Javits Center.

The construction hoist has been completely dismantled since our last update in December, leaving a void in the facade to be filled.

A rectangular banner advertising the property was hung on the lower levels of the rear of the tower. Sidewalk scaffolding still surrounds the site, but the first level appears nearly complete.

Contrasting with the floor-to-ceiling glass is a section of light-colored stone slabs at the base of the north side.

Amenities include a resident sky lounge, golf simulator, squash court, fitness center, communal work stations and other yet to be announced features. The closest subway to Lyra NYC is the 7 train at the 34th Street-Hudson Yards station, located south by Bella Abzug Park. The 1, 2, 3, A, C, and E, NJ Transit, and Amtrak trains are also nearby east of Pennsylvania Station. To the north is the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel.

YIMBY last reported that 555 West 38th Street is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022.
