The largest private real estate development in U.S. history, Hudson Yards has dramatically transformed a vast desolate space into New York’s next great neighborhood that mixes residences, offices, hotels, retail and vibrant street life, extending and enhancing the texture and feel of New York.
The plan for Hudson Yards is not just about erecting tall buildings or bricks and mortar; it is about creating dynamic spaces to be used and enjoyed by residents and workers, and a celebrated destination for visitors from across the City, the region and the world. Hudson Yards is a distinctive community characterized by world-leading sustainability, affordable housing, and diverse architectural styles. Its streets are lined with shops, restaurants, galleries, arts and culture.
A spectacular park destined to be New York City’s next great gathering place will unify the residential, commercial and retail structures and also link to the Hudson River waterfront, the exciting High Line district and Hudson Boulevard Park. New Class-A office space in the heart of Manhattan will fuel the future growth of the City and ensure it remains the global commercial capital.
Requiring both design excellence and complex project planning and engineering, the new 28-acre neighborhood is built on two platforms above the Long Island Rail Road rail yard, the country’s busiest train, at the point where 30 rail tracks converge into four before entering Penn Station.
