What We’re Looking Forward to Most at Hudson Yards
Hudson Yards is unlike anything that has been built before, especially in Manhattan, where large-scale urban-planning strategies are not uncommon. In fact, Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States. But, how does one foster innovation in a city that is constantly looking for ways to rebrand itself? Hudson Yards will be the embodiment of neighborhoods of the future where residents’ high expectations for how they live, work and play are met with both amenities and a holistic sense of community.
As a company creating our mark within the Manhattan landscape, we are excited by the vision for Hudson Yards and the ways it will contribute to the city’s continuous evolution. Below are four things we are most looking forward to as Hudson Yards progresses:
A Work Environment Perfected for Fresh Talent
As a hospitality company, we strive to create a work environment appealing to guests in our hotels as well as for employees behind the scenes. We’re delighted Hudson Yards shares our philosophy for creating an environment with an ideal office culture in mind. The development already has attracted a wide variety of different industries as their tenants, including finance, tech, media, and legal companies. The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Coach, L’Oréal, SAP, and VaynerMedia are some examples of organizations that have selected Hudson Yards as home base to attract new talent.
Eat Around the Globe
To round out any good Manhattan neighborhood, city dwellers and tourists look for new areas to shop and dine. Our team is one of self-proclaimed foodies that are always looking to explore new dining scenes, and while options are not difficult to find in NYC, Hudson Yards will combine powerhouses within the industry to make it a sought-after global collection of restaurants that we cannot wait to experience.
Renowned Chef Thomas Keller will curate the restaurant collection – featuring a variety of dining options from culinary superstars, such as Chefs José Andrés, David Chang and Michael Lomonaco. Each kitchen will be unique and delectable. They will serve globally-inspired dishes in dazzling dining rooms with spectacular views of the city, Hudson Yards and the Hudson River as a backdrop. We’re anxiously awaiting the chance to experience Hudson Yards – one meal at a time.
Embrace Public Art and Space
For all that is great about living in New York City, some may say there’s a lack of a connection to nature. As a company devoted to hospitality, we also understand the importance for balance between work, play and homelife. Hudson Yards will be anchored by three distinct city parks, offering gardens and outdoor space for residents and the public. These areas will bridge the gap between the hectic work environment of the city and the need for a place to unwind in nature.
Although you can find a subway line almost everywhere you turn in NYC, it’s because of Hudson Yards that the 7 train line was extended to the West Side. The 7 train is already up and running, but we are looking forward to many more subway and transportation options connecting to this new part of town.
With skyscrapers, shops, parks and cultural attractions currently forming at Hudson Yards, there is much more to talk about than just a real-estate project. The megadevelopment is an enormous bet that the way we live and work is changing. Hudson Yards is about leaving behind a legacy while inspiring companies like ours that any goal is achievable with the right amount of skills and showmanship.
