Smile NEW YORK | Hudson Yards; 40 msf of development

With land available for large office construction in Manhattan scarce, the City has turned to its last "frontier" - the West Side of Manhattan - to expand the commercial core. Known more for its lowrise character and parking lots, the Hudson Yards redevelopment will transform this last frontier into a vital piece of the City's future growth.

This will be aided in part by the extension of the number 7 subway line, at last bringing the subway service into this otherwise "desolate" area of the city.

The City will also cover two large, open railyards with development and open space. A major new boulevard - Hudson Boulevard - will be the center of the new commercial and residential construction.




NEW YORK heals.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
