The 178 apartments are fully loaded with amenities, services and state-of-the-art interiors from chef’s kitchens with built-in Miele appliances and Turkish marble countertops to spa-inspired bathrooms with Brazilian quartzite vanities and walls. The 33-story stone-and-glass building features architecture by Davis Brody Bond, layouts by Ismael Leyva Architects and interiors by Andre Kikoski.
A successful residential component is critical to the 100 retailers and restaurants opening up in the 28-acre Hudson Yards mixed-used development, including Neiman Marcus. The businesses will also seek to cater to office workers at Hudson Yards and tourists visiting the site and coming off the High Line park.
“One Hudson Yards was curated for those who seek an elevated sense of living. Each apartment has been meticulously designed with thoughtful details and materials sourced from around the world to create a compelling offering for sophisticated renters,” Benjamin Joseph, executive vice president at Related Companies, developer of Hudson Yards, said Monday, when the leasing began.
According to Chris Schmidt, vice president of luxury leasing at Related Companies, “One Hudson Yards is ideal for renters who have the means to buy but choose to lease the luxury lifestyle.”
One Hudson Yards is situated at 530 West 30th Street along the High Line, at the southern entrance to Hudson Yards and overlooking Heatherwick Studio’s giant interactive outdoor design piece, “Vessel.” The residences also overlook The Shed, where exhibits and shows will be held. The Vessel and The Shed are under construction.
There are one-bedroom/one-bathroom apartments starting at $4,890; two-bed/two-baths starting at $7,945, and three-bed/three-baths starting at $11,895. There is also one four-bedroom apartment that already rented at $24,000. One-bedrooms are 750 square feet; two-bedrooms are around 1,200 square feet; three-bedroom apartments are 1,750 square feet, and the four-bedroom apartment is more than 2,000 square feet.
Each apartment has 10-foot ceilings, wide-plank gray oak floors and tall windows. There are also washers and dryers and wireless lighting controls, with some apartments offering built-in coffee makers and motorized shades.
Other features include a sun and barbecue terrace, two lounges each with a kitchen and dining area, and a “suite” of swimming pools comprising an 82-foot pool, a plunge pool, a salt pool and hot tub, as well as a sauna and steam room, a fitness center, a basketball half-court, a climbing gym, a bowling alley and a game lounge.
Related also has a portfolio of affordable housing around the country and is bringing a total of 1,000 affordable units to Hudson Yards and the vicinity, including 430 within the project and the remainder nearby. Apartments are obtained by lottery in conjunction with the city. The lottery for 106 units in 15 Hudson Yards will be held sometime in 2018. The lottery for 78 units at Abington House next to Hudson Yards was held when the building opened a few years ago.
