NEW YORK CITY’S NEW NEIGHBORHOOD

Things that make us want to die of excitement: this. New York City is about to undergo one of the most interesting construction projects of recent history, building what is essentially an entire neighborhood from scratch.

Overseen by real estate firm Related Companies, the project will see sixteen skyscrapers constructed on Manhattan’s West Side Yard, adding over 12 million square feet of office, residential, and retail space to the area.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg on the project: “After years and years of planning and partnership, breaking ground on the first commercial building of Hudson Yards is a wonderful thing. Today’s groundbreaking means that the market has spoken, and that even in this challenging economy we’re moving forward to make the Far West Side’s economic potential a reality.”
