The Shops at Hudson Yards is part of the largest development in Manhattan, bringing together 12 million square feet of residential, commercial and office space over the west rail yards. The shops occupy the base of two towers, each over 1,000 feet tall designed by KPF. The retail plan brings together multiple pedestrian entry points around the site, connecting to the High Line, 10th Avenue, a new public park, and subway station. A grand atrium on the west side faces a new park and the Hudson River. The atrium connects the multiple retail levels, culminating at the upper level food hall, restaurants and cinema. The Shops include a 250,000 sf department store, 310,000 sf of luxury retail, 50,000 sf food market, and 80,000 sf food hall, 100,000 sf of restaurants, and a 60,000 sf cinema. The design integrates the site constraints and multiple program uses into a unique vertical retail center.
