In Hudson Yards, on Manhattan’s West Side, on March 11th, The Edge will be built, a hanging terrace on the hundredth floor to admire even better the New York skyline and also what’s under our feet.
Suspended in mid-air, accessible by elevator in just 60 seconds, the terrace gives the unique feeling of floating in the sky with a 360-degree view incomparable to any other skyscraper or complex nearby.
A view unsuitable for the faint of heart, with a glass floor suspended 344 metres high forming a 700 square metre terrace overlooking the Hudson River.
The outdoor sky deck is made of frameless glass panels, bravely tilted outwards.
There will be fifteen different viewpoints, from the stairway to the various balconies, to the most extreme point.
An imposing work, designed by William Pedersen and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), with interiors by Rockwell Group, designed to redevelop and give new life to an area that has long been degraded and neglected.
Although The Edge is scheduled to open in just under a month, the race for tickets has already started, already on sale at a price ranging from $36 to $90, with the possibility of choosing between several packages.
You can, if you wish, accompany the visit with a glass of champagne or make a custom-made photo shoot.
The terrace is open every day from eight in the morning until midnight and there will also be a “Peak” restaurant where you can end the evening.
