Hudson Yards, Coming Soon to the Big Apple

By Kelsey Ogletree, January 30, 2017

New York City’s famous river will soon share its name with Hudson Yards, the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States. Among the amenities at Hudson Yards, scheduled for completion in 2025:

> 17 million square feet of commercial and residential space
> 100+ shops
> New skyscrapers
> 14 acres of public open space
> Equinox-branded hotel

What does it matter to event planners? The destination will not only reshape New York’s iconic skyline, it will also add new resources to the city for meeting and event planners—one being the Public Square and Gardens, which will practically beg for picnic gatherings. 

“Hudson Yards will feature several dynamic event and hospitality spaces throughout the development,” says Stacey Feder, senior vice president of marketing for Related Companies, developer of Hudson Yards. “We are excited to be working with culinary masters such as Chefs Thomas Keller, Costas Spiliadis and Jose Andres, who are planning restaurants at Hudson Yards providing private dining spaces and outdoor terraces for entertaining to open in 2018.”

In 2019, the observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards will open as the tallest outdoor observation deck in New York City and include access to “breathtaking indoor and outdoor spaces,” adds Feder.
