The Hudson Yards is a 20 billion dollar project in Manhattan that will consist of 16 skyscrapers and the redevelopment of a neighborhood. The centerpiece of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project is the Hudson Yards neighborhood, a 26-to-28-acre (10.5 to 11.3 ha) mixed-use real estate development by Related Companies and Oxford Properties. The new construction is supposedly the largest ever of its kind. According to its master plan, created by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, Hudson Yards is expected to consist of 16 skyscrapers containing more than 12,700,000 square feet (1,180,000 m2) of new office, residential, and retail space. Among its components will be six million square feet (560,000 m2) of commercial office space, a 750,000-square-foot (70,000 m2) retail center with two levels of restaurants, cafes, markets and bars, a hotel, a cultural space, about 5,000 residences, a 750-seat school, and 14 acres (5.7 ha) of public open space.
Hudson Yards should be completed by 2018 if it remains on schedule and budget.
