New York opens neighborhood. The real estate complex is huge. It extends from 30th Street to 34th Street between 10th and 11th avenues on the island of Manhattan. Hudson Yards is imposing when viewed upon entering New York City from neighboring New Jersey before the tunnel is named after President Lincoln. To the point of transforming the already congested profile of the city with skyscrapers. The most modern district of the largest American metropolis is also known as the Far West Side. It combines spaces for offices and luxury homes in six tall buildings, with recreational areas, art and its own school.
In the new district, crowned by skyscrapers, there are a dozen restaurants dedicated to the restoration, such as the Little Spain Market of the Ferran brothers and Albert Adriá with José Andrés, a pinch of Spanish cuisine in the new corner of New York. This one-off landing of such prominent figures including Thomas Keller, David Chang and Michael Lomonaco is unprecedented in New York, a city that is already considered a global culinary mecca. Now it is strengthened. The impact on the economy and the pace of the city will therefore be considerable, as it provides twice as many jobs as the failed Amazon project in Long Island City.
Hudson Yards is the largest private project in the history of the United States. He is led by real estate companies, Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group. The plot covering the business and leisure complex was re-qualified 14 years ago, when the then mayor Michael Bloomberg gambled for the city to organize the Olympic Games. It was an area that was inaccessible to the public, which served as a training ground.
A project that will be ready in 2022
Instead of a sports stadium and at the same terminal, this Friday will open the first phase of a project estimated to have mobilized at least $ 25,000 million in 2022 (more than 22,000 million euros) in investments. The space it occupies is already larger than the Rockefeller Center between Fifth and Sixth Avenue. It will double in size to the new World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan.
The tallest building is the 30 Hudson Yards, measuring 395 meters. The rising profile divides it when it reaches a triangular terrace at the top, which will be inaugurated in 2020. It will have to be among the tenants of the Time Warner group of resources. The number 10, also of offices, includes a commercial space in which the Dining room of Spanish products and will have among its tenants Coach and L & # 39; Oréal.
Betting on Spanish gastronomy
The Little Spain Market, developed by José Andrés and the Adrià brothers, is not a restaurant. It is a complex of restaurants, all dedicated to Spain. It covers an area of 3,200 square meters on the ground floor of the building of number 10.
It is designed to create an open market and includes three restaurants – Leña, Mar and Spanish Dinner – offering a menu of dishes made with Spanish products. There are also a few bars dedicated to cocktails and a dozen tapas bars. From bravas to churros. The large hall opens to the public on 15 March. First the bar-celona cocktail bar, the supermarket and some of the more informal food kiosks open. The rest of the restaurants will be included until everything is underway in April. "We bring the culture of Spain to New York, the most delicious things from all over Spain," said chef José Andrés on a private press visit on Wednesday.
Offices and residential areas
The 55 Hudson Yards are also reserved for offices, while the 15 Hudson Yards is a residential building with direct access to the High Line, the elevated park that leads to the Meatpacking District and one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. It offers space for 285 luxury apartments and 107 rental properties at affordable prices. The 35 Hudson Yards have a mixed character and combine hotel and residence.
The complex includes a 15-story sculpture in its public park called the New York Staircase. The architectural copper work has a zigzag spiral shape, formed by 2500 steps. There is also a shopping mall with a hundred stores, including a Spanish Zara, and 25 restaurants, including chefs Thomas Keller and David Chang.
The cultural center The Shed is inaugurated in April. The complex has two hectares of green zones, where 200 trees are planted. The great master of this mega real estate project is tycoon Stephen Ross, owner of Related and patron of the Miami Dolphins. His fortune is estimated at 6,500 million and among the assets has the Sun Life stadium in Florida.
