Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States. It changed a vast desolate space into New York’s next great neighborhood. It includes commercial and residential space, state-of-the-art office towers, more than 100 shops, and a collection of restaurants.
The plan for Hudson Yards was not just about erecting tall and spectacular towers, but to create dynamic spaces to be used and enjoyed by residents and workers, and a celebrated destination for visitors from across the city, the region and the world.
Requiring both design excellence and complex project planning and engineering, this 28-acre neighborhood was built on two platforms above the Long Island Rail Road rail yard, the country’s busiest train.
Effisus Ecofacade P-Fix, a solution with clip-in gaskets for waterproofing façade connections, was applied on site, improving the buildings’ envelope efficiency and sustainability.
