Hudson Yards has been one of New York City’s most anticipated developments in years. When the first phase finally opened to the public this past March, it gave visitors, shoppers, and workers a glimpse into the sprawling, self-sustaining neighborhood that it would eventually become. More than the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States, Hudson Yards also promised to become a new epicenter of fine dining as well as an artistic resource for Manhattan.

There are so many projects, buildings, public spaces, and shopping centers involved in Hudson Yards it can be hard to keep track of what’s coming and what you need to be aware of. So let’s take a closer look at some of the largest developments and buildings that will help shape Hudson Yards for decades to come.

One Hudson Yards

Not to be confused with the original One Hudson Yards (which is now known as 55 Hudson Yards), the actual building with this address is a 33-story apartment complex found on 30th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues. Designed by Davis Brody Bond, the building includes 178 apartments that range from studios to a four-bedroom penthouse. Prices here start at $5,095 per month and units include 10-foot ceilings and the kind of views you would expect for the price. The building also includes a pool, basketball court, and bowling alley.

10 Hudson Yards

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, this 52-story skyscraper began construction in 2012 and was the first building to open in the development in 2016. While there are plenty of major office tenants found inside, including Coach, L’Oreal USA, SAP, and VaynerMedia, most visitors will come here to visit Mercado Little Spain, Chef Jose Andres’ 35,000 square-foot food hall.

15 Hudson Yards

Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, this 917-foot building opened its doors this past spring. There are 285 condos inside, and though more than half are already spoken for, there are also 100 affordable apartments available through a lottery. Residents can expect to enjoy a 75-foot pool, 3,500-square-foot fitness center, co-working space, and screening room.

30 Hudson Yards

Another Kohn Pedersen Fox design, this 1,296-foot building opened to tenants this past spring as well. Some of the corporate tenants already here include HBO, Time Warner, and CNN, as well as Related and Oxford Properties Group, developers of Hudson Yards. This is where you’ll find the Hudson Yards observation deck that will over 1,000 feet in the air. That is expected to be open around March 2020.

35 Hudson Yards

Another megatall residential tower, 35 Hudson Yards comes in a little over 1,000 feet tall with a design by Skidmore, Owings + Merrill’s David Childs. Not only is it home to 143 apartments but it’s also the location of Equinox’s first concept hotel. Prices here start at $5 million for a two-bedroom residence and the average price for apartments here is around $11 million. There are plenty of amenities that come with that price, including Equinox and SoulCycle fitness experiences, a screening room, and a “director of residences” who acts as a personal concierge for residents.

50 Hudson Yards

The second-tallest tower in Hudson Yards, this 58-story building was designed by Norman Foster and includes retail and office spaces. It will be a while before construction is complete on this building, and it is scheduled to open around 2022.

55 Hudson Yards

Kohn Pedersen Fox also designed this 780-foot office building that’s a gleaming glass tower rising into the sky. Having recently opened this year, it’s home to a handful of law firms, health care companies, and private equity firms.

And all of this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the depth and offerings of Hudson Yards. If you’re interested in learning more about the residential opportunities here as well as everything the new development has to offer, contact an Elegran agent today
