Hudson Yards Makes Its Mark on Manhattan

On March 15, Hudson Yards officially opened in New York City. Developed by Related Companies, the shopping and cultural destination is the largest private real estate development in the United States. Located between 10th and 12th Avenues from West 30th to 34th Streets, the project is known as the city’s new cultural phenomenon—an expansive space aplenty with art, food, fashion, and fun.

The property—now home to an array of world-class fashion and cuisine leaders, including names like TAK Room by Thomas Keller, Fuku by David Chang, Neiman Marcus, Van Cleef & Arpels, Fendi, Forty Five Ten, and Cartier—is also anchored by architect Thomas Heatherwick’s Vessel, a walkable sculpture with 154 interconnecting flights of stairs that acts as the project’s centerpiece.
