When the city of New York began assembling its Olympic bid back in 2001, a two-block rail yard at the forlorn Far West Side would have served as a home for a new stadium. The Olympic bid and the stadium did not panned out, but what NYC got in exchange is something greater and more important for the city’s long-term development. Over the past few years, the former district of parking lots and warehouses has transformed into Hudson Yards, a brand new neighborhood with a skyline that rivals those of most large cities, with millions of square feet of office and retail space, thousands of new apartments, a performance hall, and acres of public space, with much more yet to come.

With such a diverse mix of building types and functions, it is difficult to compare them with one another on any objective scale. Arguably, height is the only objective measuring stick for a rundown of this scale, especially when loftiness is such a salient feature for the neighborhood. Journey with CityRealty to Hudson Yards, where the Far West Side seems closer and more exciting with each new development.

The 1,270-foot-tall glass shard at 30 Hudson Yards tops out higher than the Empire State Building’s highest floor and ranks as New York’s seventh-tallest building, and one of the city’s largest by area at 3.9 million square feet. The angled, slanted supertall makes a dramatic statement on the city skyline, in tandem with its slightly-smaller, slightly-older sibling at 10 Hudson Yards; Bill Pedersen, the building’s lead architect, describes the skyward gesture as “heroic” in its elan. The tower boasts tall ceilings, panoramic views, a soaring lobby, high-rise terraces, LEED Gold certification, in-building access to the Shops at Hudson Yards, adjacency to the 34th Street-Hudson Yards station of the 7 train, and two-block proximity to Penn Station. These perks have netted tenants such as Warner Media, KKR, Wells Fargo Securities, DNB, and Facebook, which signed a lease in November for 265,000 square feet of floor space. Edge, a 1,100-square-foot-high observation deck that dramatically juts out from the building’s pinnacle, is set to open in early 2020.

Bjarke Ingles-designed Spiral, located at 34th Street and Hudson Boulevard, is under construction en route to its 1,032-foot pinnacle, which will soar higher than the Chrysler Building. The 66-story supertall will pack 2.6 million square feet of floor space, 2.2 million of which would be used as office space. The tower’s namesake feature is a series of lush, green setback terraces that spiral up the building’s facade, a delightful touch that will stand out among an ever-densifying skyscraper crowd. The adjacent 7 train station ensures convenient commute for its future thousands of office workers, who will enliven the formerly-forlorn streets of the Far West Side neighborhood.

Across the street from the Spiral, another similarly-massive supertall is racing upward in a sky-scraping construction competition. Upon its anticipated 2022 completion, 50 Hudson Yards will rise 57 stories and rank as the city’s fourth-largest office building, with nearly 2.9 million gross square feet, 1.2 million of which will be leased by Facebook. The broad-shouldered, 1,012-foot slab will exude a dominating presence over the skyline and the streetscape alike, yet the building excels through its finer details. The architects at Foster + Partners crafted a grid of light marble that segments the facade into four-stor sections, with projecting, chamfered black metal trim elegantly framing floor-to-ceiling windows. The tower stands across from the curved glass canopy of the 7 train station, greeting subway riders emerging from the underground concourse.

The 1,010-foot supertall at 35 Hudson Yards ranks as New York City’s fifth-tallest apartment building and features the highest residences at the emerging Hudson Yards neighborhood. Residences start at the 53rd floor of the 71-story high-rise, which was designed by Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill; the Equinox Hotel spans the lower floors. The notched, rounded pinnacle makes a dramatic skyline statement. Floor-to-ceiling windows open onto splendid vistas in all directions, most notably the Hudson River that stretches in open view from every west-facing apartment. The Hudson Yards plaza, Thomas Heatherwick’s Vessel sculpture, the High Line, the Shed performance hall, and the Shops at Hudson Yards all sit just steps away. The amenity roster includes extensive concierge services, ample common lounges and entertainment areas, and a complimentary two-year membership at the 60,000-square-foot Equinox Club and Spa.

One Manhattan West is the 67-story centerpiece of the 7-million-square-foot, mixed-use Manhattan West development in progress across 10th Avenue from Hudson Yards. The office tower rises just feet shy of the 1,000-foot benchmark, yet still qualifies as a supertall since it rises above the 300 meter (984 foot) threshold. The 2.1-million-square-foot, SOM-designed building is an exercise in sleek minimalism, with a pristine, curved facade that makes for a dazzling, reflective tapestry of blue sky and passing clouds. Tall-ceiled, column-free, 33,000- to 38,000-square-foot floorplates are well-suited for major corporate tenants. A sheer-glass, vaulted lobby opens the future Moynihan Station in progress at the former Farley Post Office across Ninth Avenue, as well as the public promenade planned in the middle of the complex.

The 935-foot, 67-story tower rises just slightly lower than its older sibling, and will feature a similar curved-glass design, tall ceilings, and large floorplates that will span up to 50,000 square feet at the podium. The 1.9-million-square-foot building also faces the 2-acre promenade that will anchor the complex with public space and retail.

The 914-foot, 70-story skyscraper at 15 Hudson Yards, designed by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, ranks among the city’s tallest apartment buildings, while the gently-bowed, glass-clad facade is one of the city’s most graceful. The Shed performance center, capped with its signature sliding canopy, nestles at the building base. The elite residence adjoins the High Line, Thomas Heatherwick’s Vessel sculpture, the Shops at Hudson Yards, and Bella Abguz Park at Hudson Boulevard with its 7 train station. Chelsea spans to the south, and the Hudson River Greenway stretches a block west. Resident services include round-the-clock concierge, housekeeping, personal shoppers, refrigerator stocking, luggage packing, florist, pet and plant care, 24-hour in-residence catering, translation assistance, in-unit spa treatments, art consultation and framing, car detailing, and much more. An amenity club features lounges, game rooms, a 3,500-square-foot fitness center, a 75-foot swimming pool, a business suite, and screening rooms, all boasting panoramic views from the from the 50th and 51st floors.

In the coming years, the intersection of 34th Street and Hudson Boulevard will house one of the most imposing skyscraper clusters in the city. Across from the recently-completed 55 Hudson Yards and under-construction supertalls Spire and 50 Hudson Yards, Boston Properties and Moinian Group have filed permits for 3 Hudson Boulevard, a mammoth 888-foot-tall, 56-story skyscraper that would hold 1.5 million square feet of commercial space. Like its peers at the intersection, the FXCOllaborative-designed tower would leave a hefty imprint on the skyline, rising without setbacks from the base to the flat-topped crown.

Between 2016 and 2018, the 878-foot-tall, sloped shard dominated the local skyline, a harbinger of even greater things to come. The skyscraper slopes in the opposite direction from its supertall peer at 30 Hudson Yards, with the duo seemingly dancing with one another, with the massive Shops at Hudson Yards situated in between. The tower retains its absolute dominance over the High Line as it bookends the park’s principal north-south run, and acts as a gateway to Hudson Yards to those approaching the development from Chelsea, whether through the elevated park or the streets below. The building is sometimes colloquially called Coach Tower thanks to its anchor tenant, while its other tenants include L'Oreal, Kate Spade, Stuart Weitzman, Boston Consulting Group, Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Guardian, VaynerMedia, and Intersection and Sidewalk Labs.

The 779-foot-tall, 51-story office skyscraper at 55 Hudson Yards is at once very similar to, and quite distinct from, its next-door counterparts. In tune with those, the 1.27-million-square-foot building offers large floorplates, tall ceilings, panoramic views, all the perks and technological conveniences of a modern office building, environmentally-friendly certification (LEED Gold), and immediate adjacency to the 7 train, the Shops at Hudson Yards, and Bella Abguz Park. However, the skyscraper contrasts against its sheer-glass-walled neighbors with a facade that encloses floor-to-ceiling windows within a matte metal grid, curved at the corners and coffered in diminishing stages that create a one-of-a-kind, distinctive appearance. Double-height, open-air corner loggias complement a large, elevated green terrace. In November, Facebook signed a lease for around 57,000 square feet within the building, completing a three-building “campus” with adjacent towers at 35 and 50 Hudson Yards.

In 2014, McCourt Global, headed by Frank McCourt, former owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, proposed a 61-story tower at the corner of Tenth Avenue and 30th Street, on a lucrative yet mostly vacant lot that nestles between the High Line and the Hudson Yards and Manhattan West complexes. SHoP Architects came up with a striking tower that starts out as a “standard” glass box yet twists and transforms at the top with balconies and an angled pinnacle. Little progress at the site has been heard in the past few years, yet whether or not the developments gets built as originally planned, whatever rises at the site is bound to be a marquee project at one of the most desirable locations available in the neighborhood.

Around 2015, a sprawling, full-block Mercedes-Benz dealership at 11th Avenue and 41st Street, at the foot of the Lincoln Tunnel approach, made way for an ambitious, mixed-use development spearheaded by Silverstein Properties. After several starts, halts, and redesigns, the project is finally on track to move forward, with construction expected to commence full steam in the coming weeks. The latest iteration consists of a skyscraper pair designed by CetraRuddy Architecture. The taller is a sheer glass slab that will rise uninterrupted to the 750-foot-plus pinnacle, will be an office building with 50 or so stories (758’ and 52 floors are the closest estimates available at the time). The 499-unit condo tower at 11th Avenue and 40th Street will rise to a slightly shorter yet still formidable height of 723 feet and 57 floors, offering residents dramatic panoramas of the skyline and the Hudson River from floor-to-ceiling windows. A series of outdoor terraces will offer greenery, meeting space, a tennis court, and an outdoor pool. Indoor perks will include multiple lounges (including one at the pinnacle), a basketball court, a co-working business center, a screening room, a children’s playroom, a game room, a library, a golf simulator, and more.

If built as planned, the 720-foot, 47-story Hudson Rise would stand as one of the most architecturally interesting buildings in the neighborhood. Archilier Architects deconstruct the “standard” glass tower archetype with rigorous geometric projections at the base and upper portion, which would create distinctive personality both at the ground and skyline levels, while providing a unique experience for its occupants through staggered terraces and projecting units. Developer Kuafu Properties plans to outfit the mixed-use building with 350 hotel rooms, well-suited for the Javits Convention Center across the street, and 27 condominium apartments, which would overlook the Center’s sprawling green roof and open panoramas of the Hudso River and the Palisades beyond.

The 64-story skyscraper ranks among the city’s tallest rental buildings. Splendid panoramas come into view from floor-to-ceiling windows and from the Hudson Club, a lounge with a private dining room, chef’s kitchen, game room, a fireplace, a piano, and a 4,600-square-foot outdoor terrace with a lawn, a pergola, and seating. In addition, the 50,000-square-foot amenity suite includes a gym with a two-story rock-climbing wall and a full-size basketball court, a golf simulator, arcade and billiards rooms, a children’s playroom, and a library, as well as extensive concierge services. RW Studio-designed residences come with wood flooring, stainless steel appliances, granite counters in kitchens and USB charging outlets. The Eugene, also known as 3 Manhattan West, is part of the 7-million-square-foot, mixed-use Manhattan West complex, which will also include four office buildings, a hotel, and a two-acre plaza surrounded by 240,000 square feet of retail.

At the moment, most new Hudson Yards buildings stand east of Eleventh Avenue, yet new development is finally pushing beyond that frontier. Foundation work has recently begun at 601 West 29th Street, where the Hudson Yards neighborhood meets Chelsea to the south. Renderings by FXCollaborative show an imposing, L-shaped skyscraper that will feature panoramic views in most directions, at least until future taller buildings inevitably obscure some of the views. Details on the project remain scant, yet documents filed with the Department of Buildings call for amenities such as resident lounges, dog grooming, storage, parking for 186 cars and 467 bicycles, a 6th floor terrace with an outdoor pool, and another terrace at the 40th floor adjacent to a lounge and a library. 9,496 square feet of ground-level retail will go a long way to animating the sidewalk at the peripheral yet promising part of the city.

While major office tower comprise much of Hudson Boulevard’s south end, the buildings along Manhattan’s newest thoroughfare become increasingly residential to the north, toward the upper 30’s streets. Tishman Speyer’s 44-story office tower proposed at 99 Hudson Boulevard promises to buck that trend with 1.5 million square feet of commercial space, adding round-the-clock sidewalk vibrancy to an area that is otherwise shaping into a bedroom community. Currently available plans remain tentative, and the final design is likely to differ from the renderings released so far.

A rapidly-rising skyline is good news for a forward-looking city, vibrant sidewalks, and growing communities, but not so much for those that wish to have perpetually-unobstructed views. Having your vistas blocked by a taller usurper is a reality of living in a skyscraper city, so if you wish to preserve your pad as a personal observatory, you ought to do your research and buy in a spot guaranteed to remain unobstructed for years to come. One of such buildings is the 52-story, 591-unit rental planned at 555 West 38th Street, which would overlook the low-rise green roof at the Jacob Javits Convention Center and preserve clear sightlines of the Hudson River, no matter how many skyscrapers rise nearby. The asymmetrically-massed building is designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, with SLCE attached as the architect of record, and will offer amenities such as resident lounges and a spacious 33rd-floor outdoor deck at the building’s setback.

Rockrose Development’s two-towered, 855-unit rental looked out of place when it rose in a forlorn industrial district in 2009, yet the project is an example of a foresignted developer eager to stake an early claim to New York’s next hottest neighborhood. The buildings align with the future Hudson Boulevard and park that is set to be constructed in the coming years. New towers are steadily rising on surrounding, yet at the moment, the buildings remain prominent enough to offer panoramic views from most apartments behind Handel Architects’ serrated, glassy facade.

Courtyard by Marriott NY Midtown West Courtyard by Marriott NY Midtown West (DSM Design Group)
The 29-story, 399-room Marriott Courtyard Hotel at 461 West 34th Street stands at the junction of 34th Street and Tenth Avenue, a primary junction point between the Penn Station and Garment District and Midtown West. The site’s across-the-street proximity to the supertall office towers at Hudson Yards and two-block distance to both Penn Station and the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center make it a logical choice for a hotel, ideally suited for business travelers and convention-goers alike. Design-wise, the building’s combination of horizontal rows of floor-to-ceiling windows and vertical bands of white panels poise the building as a stylistic transition between the pre-war masonry buildings to the east and the shimmering glass towers to the west.

Conservatively-styled, 33-story Abington House at 500 West 30th Street is far from the tallest or flashiest buildings at Hudson Yards; nevertheless, the high-rise ranks among the neighborhood’s most distinguished buildings. The building faces the part of the High Line where the elevated park makes a 90-degree curve at West 30th Street; this unique location makes the building readily visible, offers direct views down the High Line both to the south and west, and offers immediate access to both quaint Chelsea and booming Hudson Yards. The red-brick, gridded-window facade comes from the masterful hand of Robert A. M. Stern, New York City’s premier classicist architect, and offers a much-needed touch of tradition in the glass-tower forest. The interiors, designed by Clodagh, offer walnut cabinetry and cedar stone baths. The doorman building offers a fitness center, entertainment lounges, and a spacious green roof deck facing the High Line.

Hudson Yards is a neighborhood notable for a number of reasons, yet historic architecture is not one of them. To make up for this deficiency, BKSK Architects designed the building in the manner of a pre-war loft, with an exterior of warm red brick, broad gridded windows, tall ceilings, and an articulated crown that evokes classic Gotham. Homes at Henry Hall come in studio to two-bedroom layouts with interiors by Ken Fulk. A cozy, hedge-planted roof deck faces toward the Hudson River, making a perfect perch for watching sunsets. Other amenities include 24-hour concierge, a lounge and parlor, a private dining room, a library, and a fitness center with customized programs.

The doorman rental offers sunlit units with balconies and wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows. Building amenities include astute common areas decked out in wood and stone panels, a fitness center, a laundry room, parking for cars and bicycles, a live-in superintendent, resident storage, and a cozy roof deck with wood decking, shaded dining areas and greenery.

Pendry Manhattan West
The 21-story Pendry Hotel under construction at 440 West 34th Street is a hidden gem among the neighborhood’s glass obelisks. The 281-foot-tall building, also known as 4 Manhattan West, rises well below the skyscrapers of both its parent complex and the Hudson Yards towers to the west, yet the mid-block, tucked-away building just may be the sleekest of them all. The signature touch of esteemed architecture firm SOM, the planners of One World Trade Center, is palpable at the crisp, reflective, high-quality glass envelope that ripples into undulating waves at its 33rd Street facade, which makes for an eye-catching complex entry from the street, and on the opposite side, which faces the future public promenade and retail row at the center of the complex. The 164 hotel rooms will further diversify the user mix at Manhattan West, which also offers millions of square feet of office space and hundreds of rental apartments, contributing to a vibrant, round-the-clock district.

At Hudson Yards, even the old is becoming new again. In 1927, architects Parker & Shaffer erected a hulking, 19-story, half-million-square-foot commercial loft, the tallest concrete-framed building in the city at the time. Ninety years later, the imposing structure finds itself surrounded by much larger piers in all directions, including the massive Hudson Yards and Manhattan West complexes, both across the street. Developer SL Green has capitalized on this fortuitous turn of events by renovating the space into state-of-the-art office space with 13.5-foot ceilings, new common areas (lobby, garden, retail, and roof deck), and upgraded mechanical systems (including HVAC and elevators). The thorough upgrade, carried out by architecture firm MdeAS, grants 460 West 34th Street the esteemed title of the finest pre-war office building at Hudson Yards. It was announced in December 2019, that online retail giant Amazon has signed a 335,000-square-foot lease in the building.

In 1969, a hulking office behemoth, designed by Davis Brody Bond, rose atop below-grade rail leading to Penn Station, dominating the warehouse district with dramatic sloping walls and a whooping 1.8 million square feet of space spread across 17 floors. In 2017, the distinctive yet drab-looking structure was incorporated into the new Manhattan West Complex and received a much-needed makeover by Rex Architecture with an all-glass facade of rippling chevrons and state-of-the-art tech upgrades. The building’s 12.5- to 27-foot ceilings and prime location across from the Shops at Hudson Yards and a block away from the future Moynihan Station have attracted tenants that include Amazon, JPMorgan Chase, and IHS Markit. Whole Foods, Peloton and the Manhattan Easts Market Hall list among the building’s retailers.

In 2015, Covenant House, a non-profit group that shelters and provides supportive services to youth experiencing homelessness, have announced plans to redevelop their facility on West 41st Street, along with much of the rest of the block between Dyer and Tenth avenues. The plan included a new residential community facility for the organization itself, as well as a another residential tower, retail, and additional community space. At this time, plans for the greater facility remain up in the air, yet construction has recently started on the development’s core component - a nine-story structure with 60 supportive housing units and associated resident services.

A broad roadway and green plaza to the west mean that west-facing units receive ample sunlight even on the lower floors throughout the year. Residences feature wide plank oak floors, high ceilings, plentiful closets, solar shades, soundproof windows, washers/dryers, kitchens with Italian cabinetry and black Caesarstone counters, and bathrooms with recessed lighting, glass-walled showers, and deep soaking tubs. The building offers a 24-hour attended lobby, a lounge, a fitness center, and a landscaped roof terrace with barbecue grills.

For close to a century, the Far West Side held two of Manhattan’s largest postal facilities. Today, the James A Farley Post Office, a 1912 McKim, Mead and White landmark, is being converted into the Moynihan Train Hall annex for Penn Station. A block to the southwest, the less grandiose yet still massive and stately Morgan North facility is about to undergo a conversion of its own. Tishman Speyer plans to retrofit the 10-story, full-block pre-war behemoth into high-tech offices with 17-foot ceilings, capped with a 2.5-acre green roof.

The surge of skyscraper development in Hudson Yards brings an influx of smaller projects in its wake, particularly where the district meets established neighborhoods. 7-story Skylight House rises across the street from One Manhattan West, effectively transitioning the scale from the supertall office tower to low-rise, pre-war townhouses next door. The new office complex’s large plaza allows Skylight House residents to enjoy unobstructed sunlight and views from nearly every window, even those in bathrooms. McKim, Mead and White’s Farley Post Office across the street, which is currently being transformed into the Moynihan Station, comes into spectacular view from each of the 12 apartments. The building offers floor-to-ceiling windows that span from blonde oak wood floors to nine-foot-plus ceilings, stainless steel appliances in kitchens, and amenities that include an elevator, bike storage, a top-floor laundry room, and a shared roof deck.

Train station - 1913 / 2021 (under renovation)

Massive development like that in progress at Hudson Yards requires appropriate means of moving large numbers of people in and out of the neighborhood. The 7 train extension to 34th Street adequately serves MTA-based commuters, but more is needed to account for numerous commuters based outside the Five Boroughs. The Moynihan Train Hall project aims to do just that by converting the James A. Farley Post Office Building into an expansion for Penn Station, the busiest train station in North America. The post office building was built in 1913 by the architecture firm McKim, Mean and White as a grand Neoclassical peer to the late and great Pennsylvania Station. The latter has long since been replaced by the shoddy current iteration, so the current project, designed by Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, aims to recapture the old station’s grandeur with a vaulted glass-ceiled atrium, ample train rider services, and a platform concourse that would greatly boost the station’s capacity.

150 feet - Interactive sculpture - 2019

The Vessel-Hudson Yards-tickets The Vessel (Related-Oxford)
Much and more has been said about Thomas Heatherwick’s Vessel “sculpture,” the 150-foot-tall interactive centerpiece of Hudson Yards, with sentiments ranging from praise for originality and ingenuity to social media snark by those that relish in disparaging the latest new thing in pure contrarian spirit. In either case, the basic facts about the Vessel are self-evident. It’s eye-catching, both at a distance as the focal point at Hudson Yards and Hudson Boulevard, and up close as a bronze funhouse mirror. It’s crowd-engaging, with scores of pedestrians taking pictures both from inside out and from outside in. Finally, it’s at once strikingly original and thoroughly familiar, being both unlike anything else in the world while also evoking the Statue of Liberty in the spirit of inviting visitors to trek up the sculpture’s steps to enjoy views from the top.

The Jacob B. Javits Convention Center is like fine wine - it seems to only get better with age. Once mocked for its out-of-the-way, inaccessible location, it now sits within a block of the cavernous 34th Street-Hudson yards station of the 7 train. Once derided as one of the most egregious bird-killing buildings in the city, it now sports fritted “bird-safe” glass and a 6.75-acre green roof that acts as a major bird sanctuary. Even the 1.8-million-square-foot building’s 840,000-square-foot exhibit space, long frowned upon as inadequately small for a metropolis such as New York, is receiving a 1.2-million-square-foot expansion on its north end, designed by Atlanta-based architecture firm tvsdesign.

The Shed (Related-Oxford)
If “imaginative” is the descriptor for the Vessel, then the adjacent Shed gives it a (rail-driven) run for its money for claim to the term. The 170,000-square-foot facility nestles at the foot of the condo tower Fifteen Hudson Yards, situated between the High Line and the main plaza at Hudson Yards. The arts and performance center’s salient feature is an expandable, movable shell that slides out on giant rail-mounted rollers across an adjacent plaza to form a 16,000-square-foot performance space. The bubble-like canopy, which looks ethereal despite its 8,000,000-pound weight, forms a grand entryway to Hudson Yards from the High Line and an instantly recognizable icon for the whole neighborhood.

Every great neighborhood needs a grand focal point for people to congregate, mingle, and perhaps partake in some shopping and dining; the Shops at Hudson Yards fulfill this role on the resurgent Far West Side. The seven-story, one-million-square-foot shopping center holds over 100 retailers, notably high-end outlets such as Louis Vutton, Dior, Chanel, and Neiman Marcus, the anchor tenant that spans several floors. A sheer glass wall in the grand atrium faces the outdoor plaza with the Vessel sculpture, creating visual connection between visitors both indoors and outside. A gamut of dining options is on hand at a number of cafes and restaurants, ranging from high-end to casual, most notably Mercado Little Spain on the ground floor, a Spanish-themed dining concourse.

The distant, underdeveloped Far West Side offered a rare and valuable concession for Manhattan: space. Space enough to build not only towering high-rises, but also a roomy green boulevard in between. Bella Abzug Park, named after a prominent New York-born women’s rights activist, lawyer, and US Representative, is the multi-block green space that spans the center of Hudson Boulevard, the spine of the new neighborhood. The park runs from the Vessel north to West 36th Street (and will extend several blocks further in the future), and offers plantings, seating space, water features, play space, and the entrance to the 34th St-Hudson Yards station of the 7 train.

Related and Oxford’s Hudson Yards complex (“Hudson Yards” proper, as opposed to Hudson Yards the neighborhood) spans two rail yard superblocks between West 30th and 34th Streets and Tenth and Twelfth avenues. The first phase of the complex nears completion east of Tenth Avenues, and features the towers at 10, 15, 30, and 35 Hudson Yards, as well as The Vessel, The Shed, and Shops at Hudson Yards. The second phase, west of Tenth Avenue, remains fallow as an open-cut rail yard, yet in the future the massive encore will hold 4 million square feet of residences, 2 million square feet of office space, 100,000 square feet of retail, park space, and a school that will service the rapidly-growing local population of families.
