Hudson Yards on track for March 2019 opening

BY Al Urbanski

The final beam was inserted today in the crown of 30 Hudson Yards, the tallest structure in New York City’s newest neighborhood and taller even than the Empire State Building seven blocks to its east.

According to the developers, however, the true significance of the event is that Manhattan’s newest mega-neighborhood is on track for its promised grand opening in March of 2019.

“With less than nine months to opening, there is growing excitement around what will be an incredible destination for New Yorkers and visitors around the globe alike,” Michael Turner, president of Oxford Properties Group, co-developer of the site along with Related Companies.

Hudson Yards will add 18 million-plus sq. ft. of mixed-use development to an area once populated by warehouses near the Jacob Javits Convention Center. It will be home to more than 100 shops, including New York City’s first Neiman Marcus, Banana Republic, Coach, Lululemon, Zara, and H&M.

A chef-driven restaurant lineup will be headlined by Thomas Keller’s American restaurant, a new concept from Momofuku’s David Chang, and Costas Spiliadis’s Estiatorio Milos.
