Earth Day 2022: Hudson Yards Sustainability, by the Numbers

The neighborhood’s efforts to minimize its footprint adds up to a lot of environmental good.

Hudson Yards is a model for sustainable neighborhood development. From its extensive open spaces to its innovative green-building processes to its advanced water and energy reuse, the facts speak for themselves. Here’s a look at the planet-friendly numbers:

1st LEED Gold-certified neighborhood in Manhattan. (10 Hudson Yards is the city’s first LEED Platinum-certified commercial office building.)

5 Acres of greenery throughout Hudson Yards.

200 Mature trees—oaks, hickories and flowering shrubs—in those five acres, many native to New York and the Hudson Valley.

225 Species of pollinators, including bees and butterflies, that feast on the plants and trees, many of which are otherwise threatened by habitat loss and climate change.

25,000 Metric tons of CO2—a major cause of greenhouse-gas emissions—that are reduced annually by Hudson Yards’ first-of-its-kind microgrid, the equivalent of taking more than 5,000 cars off the road. As electricity for the development is produced, excess heat is recaptured to warm and cool the buildings.

28,000 Plants in the Public Square & Gardens.

10 million Gallons of stormwater collected eah year, which is then filtered and reused to water plants.
