Hudson-Yards-01 Hudson Yards via Related-Oxford
Where else but New York could a gleaming mega-development rise on the site of a rejected sports stadium? The first phase of Hudson Yards opens to the public on Friday, March 15, but the name dates back to 2001, when New York began its bid for the Olympics. After the proposed West Side Stadium was shot down, Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group entered a joint venture to transform the vacant site into a master-planned development with residential buildings, office towers, a new retail complex, a five-star hotel, cultural facilities, and a new school around 12 acres of public open space.

As anyone who glances at New York's western skyline knows, the towers of Hudson Yards makes a striking, sparkling addition to the Far West Side. However, Hudson Yards is not all style and no substance. All buildings are LEED Certified, and the developers have planned for all disasters from floods to blackouts to terrorist attacks.

In a lucky coincidence, Hudson Yards' retail complex opens to the public on a day when the weather is expected to warm enough to entice visitors to the Public Square and Gardens. As it does, we take a closer look at the buildings comprising the first phase of Hudson Yards.

10 Hudson Yards

Design by Kohn Pedersen Fox
52 stories | Completed in 2016

Inside this striking glass tower, the LEED Platinum-certified 10 Hudson Yards provides an advanced infrastructure, floor-to-ceiling windows, and column-free interiors. It also offers easy access to Penn Station, a direct connection to the High Line, and a direct connection to the Public Square and Gardens. Nearly three years since its opening, it has already attracted such high-profile tenants as L'Oreal, Coach, Kate Spade, Stuart Weitzman, Boston Consulting Group, Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Guardian, VaynerMedia, and Intersection and Sidewalk Labs. These office workers will have their choice of lunch options in Hudson Yards, including Mercado Little Spain, a food hall by Jose Andres in the base of the building.

The LEED Gold-Certified Fifteen Hudson Yards sits directly adjacent to performance center The Shed, above Thomas Heatherwick's interactive public landmark, and directly on the High Line. All apartments have high ceilings, expansive space, high-end finishes, and panoramic views. Floor 50 is dedicated to health and wellness amenities, Floor 51 has a more social feel with lounges and dining suites, and all are enhanced by sweeping skyline and Hudson River views.

While all buildings in Hudson Yards boast unsurpassed views of New York City landmarks, 30 Hudson Yards puts them in the shade: At a soaring height of 1,268 feet, this LEED Gold-certified tower tops out higher than the Empire State Building. Warner Media, KKR, Wells Fargo Securities, DNB, Related Companies, and Oxford Properties Group have all been drawn to its unsurpassed views, outdoor terraces, triple-height lobby, direct connection to the new 7 subway stop, easy access to Penn Station, and direct access to Hudson Yards' premier restaurants and retailers. The public is also invited to experience its views when Edge, its 1,100-square-foot-high observation deck, opens in early 2020.

When completed this year, the tallest residential building in Hudson Yards will boast ground-floor retail, an Equinox club and spa, a 200-key Equinox Hotel (the world's first!), Class A office space, and two- to six-bedroom residences beginning on the 53rd floor. The limestone and glass-clad tower is designed by David Childs of SOM and interiors are by AD100 designer Tony Ingrao. Building residents will have awe-inspiring views, enjoy thoughtful details like custom tapestries in the lobby by renowned artist Helena Hernmarck, and have access to 22,000 square feet of hotel-style amenities. A 2019 occupancy is expected and it is designed to achieve LEED Gold Certification.

This massive office and retail tower spans an entire city block and will have entrances on Hudson Park & Boulevard and 10th Avenue, as well as 33rd Street and 34th Street. The tower can hold 500 people per floor and will be the second tallest building in the massive development, following 30 Hudson Yards, and it will be the fourth largest commercial office tower in New York City. It is designed by Foster + Partners with a white stone and glass-clad façade, multiple dedicated lobbies and also large sky lobbies with amenities, outdoor terraces and expansive views. The project targets a LEED Gold Certification, and BlackRock is already committed to locating its corporate headquarters there.

The entrance to this office tower is directly across from the No.7 subway station, and the building aims to provide a work-life integration to enhance employee performance. Within its 51 floors, workers will be immersed in an indoor/outdoor experience with collaborative workspaces and several terraces and balconies on multiple levels. Its design aims to fuse elements of contemporary mega-developments with the industrial roots found in the nearby Meatpacking District. It has large floors plates with high ceilings to appeal to legal, technology and creative industries. It is expected to earn a LEED Gold Certification.
