The Making of New Neighborhood: Hudson Yards, Manhattan West and the High Line Connection

Until recently, the new Hudson Yards district was simply an open swath of space peering down upon the open Amtrak and New Jersey Transit railways below. Over the course of 30-plus years, a plan was devised to build over the rail yards and create a new Manhattan neighborhood, like the creation of the Park Avenue corridor in the late 1900s. What has grown out of multiple rezoning plans and creative development teams in tandem with city and state support is an incredibly vibrant new mixed-use neighborhood dominated by developments led by the Related Group (Hudson Yards) and Brookfield Properties (Manhattan West). Located adjacent to Pennsylvania Station and the newly redeveloped Moynihan Train Hall, these developments are easily accessible and set to become the newest hub for commerce and live/work/play. The final piece of the puzzle, connecting the sites to the elevated High Line public park, was completed earlier this year. This tour will explore the history of the Hudson Yards as a whole, the engineering and development challenges of building over the railways, and the overall thesis for its success.

During this engaging session, we'll imagine the possibilities, together. Will you be effortlessly transported from your doorstep to the office, whisked away on a cutting-edge "people mover"? Will technology become your ally, monitoring your well-being, stress levels, and productivity, providing personalized recommendations to enhance your mental health? Picture a future where your office recognizes your need for a revitalizing cup of coffee and has it waiting for you. It's time to talk about the potential of AI to enhance the human experience in the office. While everyone is discussing how AI can improve services today, few are exploring how it will revolutionize our office environments of tomorrow. Don't miss out on this invaluable session tailored for professionals, executives, and thought leaders who want to stay one step ahead in the AI-driven workplace of the future.
