The Spiral, Bjarke Ingles 1,005-foot tower that will be located in the Hudson Yards development, is officially moving forward after developer Tishman Speyer filed plans for the building in late September.

The tower, despite reaching the 1,000-foot tall mark, will only be the fourth tallest of the planned buildings in the area, Curbed New York reports. The building gets its name from its most unique feature; vertical gardens that wrap, or spiral, around the entirety of the structure like a giant snake.

According to current plans, the ground floor will have 27,000 sf of retail while floors two through 62 will be used as office space. There is 2.2 million sf of space total. As Curbed reports, however, there are a few discrepancies with some of the building’s measurements. According to the Department of Buildings filing, The Spiral will rise 962 feet and have 64 stories. And while the property has 2.2 million zonable sf, the rentable space may actually total 2.85 million.

Regardless of some of those specifics, construction of the building is now officially set at 509 West 34th Street.
