An innovative shopping and dining destination just opened in New York City’s newest and most exciting Hudson Yards neighborhood. The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards is a one-million-square-foot retail center offering an unparalleled collection of shopping and dining experiences found nowhere else in the city—including leading brands in every category from luxury to fast fashion and first stores from digitally native brands.
Developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group, the new shopping district is also one of the most connected shopping destinations in New York, with connections to the High Line, a dozen entrances from 10th Avenue, 30th Street and 33rd Street, and the No. 7 Subway line is just a few steps from the entrance. Situated in the new Hudson Yards neighborhood, the retail center is surrounded by 14 acres of public space, new cultural landmarks, 4,000 modern residences and state-of-the-art commercial office space for diverse, leading companies.
On the inside, there are over 100 stores, including a 190,000sq. ft. Neiman Marcus and New York’s first Forty Five Ten, an outpost of the Dallas-based boutique, along with all the favorites from FENDI to Tiffany and Co. and more. The dining collection is almost as extensive as the retail collection, with restaurants and food concepts co-curated by Chef Thomas Keller and Kenneth A. Himmel. The culinary experiences provide New Yorkers, residents, visitors and employees with everything from early morning coffee to lunchtime salads, and from casual cocktails to celebratory evening dinners. Every level has food and beverage offerings so when you’re tired of shopping, head to Queensyard for lunch, or Bluestone Lane for coffee.
Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, The Shops And Restaurants pay homage to the industrial past of the West Side. Inside, steel and dark wood evoke rail yards that once dominated the area and natural stone floors and exposed support structures contribute to rough-hewn, urban elegance of this vertical neighborhood. Greeting guests at the entrance is an enormous honeycomb-like structure known as Vessel. Designed by Thomas Heatherwick and Heatherwick Studio, Vessel is the centerpiece of the Hudson Yards Public Square and Gardens. The climbable staircase features 154 intricately-interconnecting flights of stairs, 2,500 individual steps, and 80 landings. Standing 150 feet in the air, Vessel offers the public a one-mile vertical climbing experience and unique views of the new neighborhood.
During the Grand Opening Weekend of Hudson Yards, numerous public performances will take place along with retailers inviting shoppers to celebrate with special events such as made-to-order C101 sneaker bar at Coach and collection launches at Cartier, Piaget and much more.
