The West 30s are undergoing some serious changes—the 7 train extension is expected to open later this summer and the new portion of the High Line was completed in the fall. And then, of course, there’s the Hudson Yards project—the largest private real estate development in U.S. history—which will place seven commercial and residential towers over the tracks and tunnels used by Long Island Railroad, Amtrak and New Jersey transit. The complex will hold a cultural center that can house art installations and fashion shows, along with five office buildings (including one with the highest open-air observation deck—yes, higher than the Empire State’s). There will also be seven levels of shops and restaurants, with a highly anticipated eatery from celeb chef Thomas Keller (Per Se, Bouchon Bakery) and a three-floor Neiman Marcus. See the photos below to get a sense of where the project is at right now.
