Hudson Yards is pretty unique. Built from the ground up on a formerly abandoned train yard, it’s not only the area where the High Line ends but also the start of a brand new neighborhood. Hudson Yards is still literally up and coming (although the MTA was miraculously able to extend the 7 train line going there BEFORE it was even completed). However, there are some really neat, brand new rental buildings in Hudson Yards although you may have to schlep a few blocks each way to find some food.
Want in before rents inevitably rise? Then here are some noteworthy, move-in ready choices.
Best for their Flock of Seagulls Lobby: One Hudson Yards
Location: 30th street between 10th and 11th avenues. So closer to the Hudson.
Management Company: Related Rentals who tends to be a bit on the pricey side but run their apartments pretty well unless you ask Yelp.
Mantra: “There is only one.” Marketing clearly loves The Highlander.
Highlights: 30th street facing apartments directly overlook the High Line but the amenities are the star here with a pool, basketball court, bowling alley and game lounge in addition to the standard (IMO) rooftop and BBQ terraces, children’s playroom and pet grooming.
Pricing: Rents start at $5,295.
Best for numerous Resident Lounges: The Lewis
Location: 35th street between 9th and 10th avenues. So closer to more restaurant options.
Management Company: Douglas Elliman handles leasing.
Mantra: “Sleek, Stylish and Modern.” That’s succinct.
Building Highlights: Focused on “comfort and relaxation.” So the usual concierge, outdoor terrace, resident’s lounge, bicycle storage, etc, with an additional lounge for tenants on each floor.
Pricing: Rents start at $3,425 net.
Best for the Rock Climber & Lazy Librarian: The Eugene
Location: 31st between 9th and 10th avenues.
Management Company: Fairfield Residential.
Mantra: “Welcome to the you generation.” No joke.
Building Highlights: Washers and dryers in each unit is pretty amazing. But they also have a rock climbing wall, “library” lounge (not sure if you can request any books but hey, included with your rent!), a basketball court, pet grooming studio, and a golf simulator. No pool, sadly.
Pricing: Rents start at $4,075.
Best for Pool on Pool Action: 555TEN
Location: 10th avenue at the corner of 41st.
Mantra: “Rise even higher.” Fair enough, it is tall.
Building Highlights: Health and wellness FLOOR with Peloton, boxing and classes, a saltwater pool, a rooftop “club” with another pool and a fireplace with unobstructed views of Hudson Yards and New Jersey (fun on the 4th of July for fireworks), the obligatory bowling alley, on-site pet care plus in-unit washers and dryers.
