NEW YORK, NY – September 12, 2016 – Related Companies today announced that condominium sales at 15 Hudson Yards will begin this week, introducing the first opportunity to live at Hudson Yards – the new heart of New York on Manhattan’s West Side. Imagined by Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R) in collaboration with Rockwell Group, 15 Hudson Yards is where design innovation meets inspired living. Residents will enjoy the convenience and privileges of living in the city’s most innovative enclave, with access to next-generation retail, dining and wellness offerings all at the place where three of the city’s most dynamic parks – the High Line, Hudson River Park, and Hudson Park & Boulevard – converge.
“Today marks an important milestone at Hudson Yards as we officially launch sales of our first residential building, 15 Hudson Yards, and introduce an unprecedented lifestyle offering that redefines what it means to live in New York City,” said Jeff Blau, Chief Executive Office and partner at Related Companies.
Soaring over 900 feet in height, 15 Hudson Yards is part of a thoughtfully designed master planned community poised to reshape the West Side skyline. The tower’s distinctive silhouette is defined by the orthogonal city grid at its base, which gradually transforms into a clover leaf shape that takes advantage of the views. The building’s location at the bend of Manhattan’s west coast affords a unique vantage point for the 285 one- to four-bedroom homes overlooking the Hudson River, across the city skyline, and above the highly-anticipated new Public Square and Gardens at Hudson Yards, designed by Thomas Woltz of Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, featuring a monumental design piece by Thomas Heatherwick.
15 Hudson Yards is located in the heart of West Chelsea’s thriving arts district known as the Cultural Coast, connected by the now iconic High Line and stretching from the Whitney Museum at its south through hundreds of galleries and culminating at The Shed, New York’s forthcoming center for artistic invention, also designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, which is adjacent to the building. 15 Hudson Yards is surrounded by green space and is one of the few residential buildings that will be situated directly on the Public Square and Gardens at Hudson Yards.
A brand new neighborhood spanning 28 acres, Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the nation’s history. Once complete, the neighborhood will feature more than 100 shops and restaurants, including New York City’s first Neiman Marcus and signature restaurants by Chefs Thomas Keller, José Andrés and Costas Spiliadis; 14 acres of public open space; world-class corporate headquarters; a new 750-seat public school; and an Equinox®-branded luxury hotel, flagship Equinox and SoulCycle® location.
The brilliantly designed residences at 15 Hudson Yards are available across five distinct residence types, all finished with extraordinary details, from white oak flooring to kitchen appliances by Miele. The Plaza Residences range from one- to three-bedrooms, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing animated views of the High Line, the Public Square and Gardens and majestic design piece by Heatherwick Studio. The two-bedroom Loft Residences offer 10’10” ceilings, expansive living spaces and massive master suites. The Panorama Residences range from one- to four-bedrooms with soaring ceilings and some of the most breathtaking views of the Hudson River, from the Statue of Liberty to the World Trade Center and beyond. The three- and four-bedroom Penthouses are remarkably private with only four residences per floor; and the Duplex Upper Penthouses on the 88th floor each occupy one of the tower’s four lobes with more than 5,000 square feet of living space, curving floor-to-ceiling windows yielding 270-degree panoramic river and city views and living rooms with double-height ceilings up to 26 feet.
Buyers can choose from residences with two personalized interior design schemes. The tonal scheme is elegant and bright, with luxurious yet understated details such as kitchen cabinetry in oxidized dove-dyed oak with champagne-colored metal accents, polished Italian Michelangelo marble kitchen countertops and islands, and master bathrooms with floating stone vanities and walls made from polished Estremoz stone. The contrast scheme showcases rich, striking hues such as oak kitchen cabinetry in a dark, black-ink stain with bronze-colored metal accents, polished Italian Grigio Tambiserra marble kitchen countertops and islands, and master bathrooms with floating stone vanities and walls of polished Blue De Savoie stone.
Each home is equipped with state-of-the-art features and conveniences that enhance quality of life, from ducted fresh air with four points of filtration per apartment to Lutron home automation to a grey water recycling system that uses storm water runoff to support cooling and irrigation. Designed to achieve LEED Gold Certification, 15 Hudson Yards will bring to life the spirit of innovation, sustainability and wellness that is the essence of the Hudson Yards lifestyle.
“15 Hudson Yards has the unique distinction of a park-front location, remarkable views, grand residences and spectacular amenities that together create a one-of-a-kind living experience,” said Sherry Tobak, Senior Vice President of Related Sales LLC. “A true triumph of 15 Hudson Yards is how DS+R and Rockwell Group’s design creates such a diverse array of residences and floor plans. For example, our two-bedrooms have layouts ranging from 1,400 to 2,400 square feet.”
Available residences at 15 Hudson Yards are priced from approximately $2 million to $30 million.
