(NEW YORK, NY) — Hudson Yards credits itself as the Manhattan neighborhood of tomorrow, but the truth is this west side neighborhood will be a hotbed of construction for the next five years.
This thorn in the side of all those who work, live, and eat in the area will be a major inconvenience and with construction, there is always other unexpected annoyances as well.
Ninety-eight percent of the listings in the neighborhood are within 525 feet, about a city block, away from construction, said by Localize.city, a city data and listing website. About one in four condos are within 160 feet, about the width of a football field, of a construction site.
The construction will continue as developers Related Companies and Oxford Property Group finish up the project’s first phase, the eastern yard, and move onto the second, the western yard, which includes 6.22 million square feet of office, residential, retail and school space.
Anyone considering living in Hudson Yards must be aware of the inconvenience of construction. Along with the other annoyances with new developments, even the newest and nearest subway station, 34th Street/Hudson Yards No. 7 station has had mechanical issues.
Like anywhere in New York City, there is always pros and cons but it’s up to the buyer to weigh them out. If living amongst construction isn’t a deal breaker, then welcome home.
