One of New York's most highly anticipated new neighbourhoods, Hudson Yards has been in frenzied construction for a few years now; and results are slowly starting to show. Ahead of the opening of some of the area's key publicly accessed areas, such as The Shed and a big chunk of the retail element, the new area's first residential tower, Fifteen Hudson Yards, is also nearing completion. 

Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro (who was the lead architect) and the Rockwell Group (who led the interiors), this elegant high rise is already over 60 per cent sold and making fast advances towards a grand opening. In the meantime, the developers, Related and Oxford, have just unveiled the interiors for the first time, matching sophisticated residential spaces with lush amenities for the residents and their guests.

The entire 50th floor at Fifteen Hudson Yard is dedicated to wellness, including an aquatics centre, gym, yoga and beauty facilities, set against a backdrop of the water and the city skyline. One floor up is the development's entertaining offering, featuring a club room, private dining, screening and performance room, golf club lounge, wine storage and tasting room, business centre, and a collaborative work space.

‘Over the past decade, we’ve had the opportunity to shape an urban ensemble comprised of a recreational, cultural and residential project for three diverse clients – working with the city on the High Line, with The Shed on a new cultural start-up, and now with Related on the first residential tower at Hudson Yards,' said DS+R Founding Partner, Elizabeth Diller, whose firm is involved in more than one key Hudson Yards projects.
