On the Far West Side of Manhattan, an ocean of construction cranes heralds a new era for New York City. Hudson Yards, a city within a city, is currently under construction on what was an open railyard surrounded by aging industrial buildings and parking lots just a few years ago. The project, the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States, promises millions of square feet of new office space as well as residential space, a hotel, a retail hub, school, public parkland and even an interactive monument known as “Vessel.”
With Midtown Manhattan and Downtown Manhattan both long established as the leading business districts in New York City, Hudson Yards certainly has plenty of competition when it comes to attracting tenants. Despite this, it’s had no problem attracting marquee companies like Coach, Time Warner, BSF, the Boston Consulting Group and KKR among others. Here’s a quick look at why Hudson Yards might just be right for your business!
Modern Office Space
When it comes to modernity, only the World Trade Center can match Hudson Yards. The development features more than six million square-feet of Class A office space with top-flight amenities and flexible floorplans. If you’re company prizes contemporary office space for your new location, Hudson Yards is one of the premier locations in a city with a large but aging office stock.
Often thought of as a no man’s land until just a few years ago, the development in fact offers a great location for all sorts of companies. Just two blocks from Penn Station, the development is within walking distance of the largest rail hub in North America and offers easy access to New Jersey Transit, the Long Island Rail Road and Amtrak. The new 7 subway station at 34th Street – Hudson Yards also offers convenient access to the Port Authority Bus Terminal and Grand Central Terminal as well as every other subway line that passes up through Midtown Manhattan. In addition to this, the development also offers direct access to the High Line and is close to Hudson River Park and Chelsea’s wide array of restaurants and shops, offering plenty of lunch options just a few blocks away.
Great Onsite and Nearby Amenities
A self-contained miniature city, the development holds a number of great onsite amenities for its tenants, just a few of which include nearly 100 shops and restaurants, abundant public parkland and direct access to the nearby 7 train station. Nearby offers amenities such as the High Line, Hudson River Park, Hudson Park & Boulevard and Penn Station just a few minutes away.
Companies looking to become trendsetters will also want to give the development a serious look. Much newer than Midtown and Lower Manhattan as a central business district location, the development is great for companies of all sizes and sectors looking to leave their mark and establish themselves on the cutting-edge.
