I toured the first residential building to open in Hudson Yards, NYC's new $25 billion neighborhood - and it was clear they're selling much more than just real estate
- Fifteen Hudson Yards is the first residential building to open in New York City's Hudson Yards, a brand-new neighborhood on Manhattan's West Side set to open on March 15.
- I took a tour of the 88-story tower and was amazed by the level of luxury it offers its residents.
- The building offers 40,000 square feet of amenities space that includes a 75-foot pool, a private spa and yoga studio, a children's "imagination center," and wine cellars available to buy for $200,000.
- More than 60% of the condos have sold, but those remaining range from $3.9 million for a two-bedroom to $32 million for a duplex penthouse.
On a recent winter afternoon, I visited 15 Hudson Yards, an 88-story super-luxury tower. It's the first residential building to open in New York City's Hudson Yards, a brand-new neighborhood on Manhattan's West Side.
At $25 billion, the site is the most expensive real estate development in US history.On my tour of 15 Hudson Yards, which was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group, I got a sneak peek of a model unit and its 40,000 square feet of amenities space on the 50th and 51st floors, which include club rooms, a private screening room, a fitness center, a 75-foot pool, a yoga studio and private spa, and wine cellars available to buy for between $25,000 and $200,000.
The Hudson Yards site as a whole doesn't officially open until March 15, but 15 Hudson Yards is already more than 60% sold with contracts totaling more than $800 million, a publicist told Business Insider. Remaining condos start at $3.9 million for a two-bedroom and go up to $32 million for duplex penthouse 88B.
After seeing 15 Hudson Yards, I was blown away by the amenities and the ultra-luxurious lifestyle it's selling to residents.
Here's what it looked like.
