Hudson Yards (located between 10th and 12th Avenues from West 30th to West 34th Streets) is the largest private real-estate development in New York City history. For nearly 100 years, the undiscovered far-west side of Manhattan was an urban wasteland, until the largest rezoning project in New York City history paved the way for Hudson Yards to become a reality.
Founded in 1972 with just a $10,000 family loan, Stephen Ross began Related Companies as a provider of affordable housing. To this day, Related is both one of the largest providers of affordable housing in the country, and the developer of Hudson Yards. Related Companies is a pioneer in designing and engineering projects that redefine urban life and push the limits on what can be accomplished.
