‘Billionaire’s Fantasy City’ is Slated to Open in NYC

The City of New York is home to the latest mega-development, dubbed Hudson Yards. After seven years of construction, the buildings will begin seeing their first tenants. This ultra-luxe development cost over $25 billion and is touted as is the nation’s most expensive building complex ever.

What does that kind of money get you these days in real estate? How about five separate high-rise towers, including shopping, office space, and 20,000 new housing units. There are 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, along with 14 acres of gardens and parks.

Its centerpiece is its eye-catching stairway sculpture, dubbed The Vessel, that looks like a massive honeycomb. Touted to the latest and greatest landmark in New York.

“This is going to be to New York City what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris,” said Jeff Blau, CEO of Related Companies said of the Vessel.

The largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center is located just off the Hudson River. Unit prices start at $3 million and range up to $32 million, a hefty price tag even by New York standards.

What can you expect for that kind of money? Find out for yourself with a virtual tour of 15 Hudson Yards; experience Manhatten life at its finest!

Also of interests: The development also boasts the 2nd tallest building in the City, complete with an observation deck 1100 feet above the street. If you aren’t in the market for a high-rise condo, it’s still worth the visit to experience the best view New York has going!
