Canadians bite into the big apple

The Hudson Yards master plan is expected to become the best thing New Yorkers have seen yet! This 13 million square feet commercial and residential development will be designed efficiently, with cutting edge sustainability features targeting a Lead Gold certification. The master plan comprises six million square feet of state-of-the-art commercial office space, a 1 million square foot destination retail centre with 130,000 square feet of space spread out on two levels for specialty destination restaurants, cafes, markets, bars, a five star hotel, an iconic cultural space, approximately 5,000 residences and a new 750-seat school, all carefully planned around 14 acres of public open space which represents 50 % of the project space in the heart of New York!

Not since covering the rail yards on Park Avenue or completing the Rockefeller Center has something this monumental been developed in the city. Nearly a century later, Hudson Yards will truly create a sense of place. The framework of these new buildings will support memorable urban spaces defined by residences, offices, hotels, and retail stores. The development will be the fulcrum of a major new open space network on the west side of Manhattan that will serve residents, workers and millions of visitors each year. Strategically located at the northern terminus of the new High Line Park, Hudson Yards will connect with the new Hudson Park and Boulevard to the North and the Hudson River Park to the West. The site also faces the Hudson River on Manhattan’s new gold coast for corporate and residential tenants.
