Hudson Yards, an extensive, developing neighborhood in the Westernmost area of the Hudson River by 34th Street, is ever expanding, expecting a slew of soaring, state-of-the-art skyscrapers and exhibits come spring 2019. Looking to move your company somewhere new? Below are a few upcoming additions to the area you might want to check out.
30 Hudson Yards
Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, this building began construction around 2015, and is slated for completion in 2019. 30 Hudson will feature a 1,000-foot high observation deck, and will feature tenants such as Time Warner Inc., Wells Fargo Securities, and DNB Bank.
The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards
Designed by KPF with interiors by Elkus Manfredi, and exuding a sense of the Shinjuku Station area, this seven-story complex will feature 25 restaurants by a number of renowned chefs from Thomas Keller to David Chang, as well as several designer brand shopping stores. The first Neiman Marcus in NYC will also be here.
The Shed will be a multidisciplinary performing arts center. It boasts a unique extendable outer shell that will bring forth today’s emerging performers, artists, among others in the visual and performing arts. This reminds me a lot of The Stood at Purchase College, where there were retro video games, pool tables, and sofas in the premises.
Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, this public attraction will be the mantle of the complex, featuring 154 interconnecting flights of stairs with 2,500 steps and 80 landings. Surrounding the sculpture will be ample seating, a new entrance to the High Line, and a whole new garden for seasonal blooms.
Come 2019, we hope to hold future JCCI events at Hudson Yards should the space allow us. Perhaps a young professional networking session at the Public Square and Gardens, known to become one of the smartest parks in town. Every drop of rain will be collected in a 60,000 gallon tank to irrigate the city’s trees and plants, which will keep the Hudson River in good condition, according to Hudson Yards’ website. This is just one of the many features the park will have.
Perhaps a dinner prepared by Chef Keller at the Shops would be our next highlight of our annual gala. Together with your generosity and efforts, the possibilities are boundless. The future is bright, no matter who you are. These are just a few of the upcoming buildings expecting to rise in Hudson Yards. For more information, please visit their website here.
