Hudson Yards is the epicenter of Manhattan’s New West Side. Bordered by the Hudson River, Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen and Midtown, this neighborhood is booming
. It is a beacon for creative professionals, growing
at five times the rate of the rest of Manhattan. A hub for fashion, design, communications and the arts, the area recently became the home of Google
and other fast-growing technology and digital media firms. Hudson Yards will attract and cater to this vibrant, cutting-edge community.
Growth can be attributed to the success of the High Line
which has spurred $2 billion of private investment, 12,000 new jobs and 29 development projects
since opening in June 2009. The High Line has started construction
of its third and final phase which wraps Hudson Yards as it turns toward the Hudson River at West 30th Street and culminates at 12th Avenue and West 34th Street. The third phase of the High Line is opening in 2014.
Additional public investment in area parks, mass transit and infrastructure will ensure this is the most livable area of the city.
