Today, Related Companies and high-end retailer Neiman Marcus debuted a model residence at Fifteen Hudson Yards. Fifteen Hudson Yards is the game-changing complex’s first condominium tower with residences, designed and styled by Ken Downing. Downing, the Senior Vice President and Fashion Director for Neiman Marcus, has worked with the highest profile designers in the fashion industry, like Zac Posen and Stella McCartney. Now, Hudson Yards’ prospective buyers can buy an apartment fashioned by Ken and/or just its art and furnishings.
This is a trend, which we have seen before with Neal Beckstedt’s pop up shop in DDG’s XOCO Soho, Restoration Hardware’s design of the 88&90 Lexington model apartment and high-end art galleries that adorn the walls of for-sale residences, seems to be catching on as luxury buildings’ and luxury retail target similar clientele.

Downing says his designs are inspired by lifelong travels to the world's fashion capitals. According to Downing, he estimates he travels 85% of his life. He also attributes his inspiration to a passion for art collecting and the building's sweeping skyline views. For Fifteen Hudson Yards, Downing channeled Neiman Marcus' luxury jet set and created a “jewel box in the sky” to go beyond creating a home, to make a statement.
In 2016, Ken Downing told the Observer, “ If I were not in the fashion world, I would be in some form of interior design or decoration.” Well, now he does both.

Downing believes, “Great design breaks boundaries and creates the unexpected experience that inspires our everyday lives. Art truly satisfies the soul and gives the imagination room to dream… I have long believed that when you surround yourself with truly inspirational objects, you feel more alive.” With his fashion designer roots, Downing paired colors from the runway with a selection of art and furniture to enhance the space.
Select items, like an $11,500 golden acrylic bed and $98 velvet accent pillows, are available for purchase through a brand-new Neiman Marcus website, which launches today. Additionally, New York City’s first Neiman Marcus will anchor The Shops at Hudson Yards.

The colorful and wallpapered two-bedrooms, 2.5-bathroom model home spans 1,464 square feet and is priced at $4,285,000. See a similar layout here. The corner master bedroom suite features a lavender Venetian chandelier that hangs above the bed and mauve and rose corner column painted by Brooklyn artist Nathan Green, drawing inspiration from the sunset views out of the floor-to-ceiling window. The second bedroom features a peacock teal color library paired with gold, brass and wood accents. The residence also features an entry foyer and a powder room for guests.

Beyond the model residence, Hudson Yards residents will have a number of exclusive lifestyle benefits and services including in-home design consultation, styling services, as well as additional perks when Neiman Marcus’ Hudson Yards flagship opens next year, such as invitations to exclusive events and designer launches, in-home tailoring, customized fashion services, and other bespoke offerings.
Fifteen Hudson Yards, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, offers 285 one- to four-bedroom condominium residences paired with a massive array of lifestyle amenities and services. The first residents of Fifteen Hudson Yards are expected to move in late 2018 and the Hudson Yards neighborhood is on track to open in March 2019.
