15 Hudson Yards, the first residential building coming to Hudson Yards, the 28-acre mixed-use redevelopment project due west of Penn Station on the Hudson River, will be located at 30th Street and 11th Avenue, adjacent to the fashionable High Line Park. Taking the form of what looks like two double barrel shotguns fused together, its multi-cylindrical appearance is a standout in a city full of right angles.
At 910 feet tall, 15 Hudson Yards, being developed by The Related Group and Oxford Properties, will be one of the tallest New York Luxury Condo buildings with 70 stories, 250 apartments (although some will be rental units). This LEED-Gold designed building was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and David Rockwell in collaboration with Ismael Leyva architects. The building will have luxury amenities, including one of Equinox’s spectacular fitness centers, a spa component and an extensive social and entertaining venue.
The Eastern Yard of the Hudson Yards (6 city blocks running from 30th to 34th Streets between 10th and 11th Avenues), where 15 Hudson Yard will be located, will include another New York Luxury Condo building, 35 Hudson Yards, as well 1 million square feet of retail, and 4 office towers (10 Hudson Yards, 30 Hudson Yards, 50 Hudson Yards and 55 Hudson Yards). 15 Hudson Yards will be connected to the “Culture Shed", a multi-purpose venue offering 7 levels of gallery and performance space that will host New York Fashion Week, among other events.
In addition, when completed, the Eastern Yard will include 20 restaurants, 100 shops, 500 residences and 4 office towers. The extension of the Subway No. 7 line, which will add transportation to the area, is expected to open early 2015.
Completion of 15 Hudson Yards is set for 2017, with occupancy likely in early 2018. We expect the building to have towering prices and unique interiors. Off-plan sales are likely at least one year away.
