Related Companies and Neiman Marcus today unveiled a model residence at Fifteen Hudson Yards, the site’s first tower with for-sale residences, designed and styled by Ken Downing, fashion director for Neiman Marcus. Inspired by decades of travels to the world’s fashion capitals, a passion for art collecting, and the building’s sweeping skyline views, Downing’s design interprets Neiman Marcus’ distinct, luxury jet-set style for New York City.
Fifteen Hudson Yards, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, offers a collection of 285 one- to four-bedroom condominium residences paired with a suite of all-encompassing lifestyle amenities and services that come with living at Hudson Yards. The first residents of Fifteen Hudson Yards are anticipated to move in later this year and the Hudson Yards neighborhood is on track to open in March 2019. This will include The Shops at Hudson Yards which is anchored by New York City’s first Neiman Marcus.
“Great design breaks boundaries and creates the unexpected experience that inspires our everyday lives. Art truly satisfies the soul and gives the imagination room to dream,” said Ken Downing, Fashion Director, Neiman Marcus. “I have long believed that when you surround yourself with truly inspirational objects, you feel more alive. When I began Fifteen Hudson Yards, I wanted to create a Jewel Box in the Sky that was symbolic of the vibrant new neighborhood it towers above. Embracing bold color and an eclectic mix of furniture and art, Fifteen Hudson Yards is more than a home, it’s a statement!”
A prominent fixture at fashion shows around the world, Downing curates the styles and trends that Neiman Marcus stands for each season. He applied the same approach to the residence, pairing colors from the runway with a diverse selection of art and vibrant furniture textures, to enhance this exceptional space. The colors and sculptural elements Downing selected for the residence enhance the sun-drenched, floor-to-ceiling, corner views of the Hudson River and Hudson Yards’ Public Square and Gardens.
The kitchen, which is open to the great room, is outfitted with a unique free-standing island, custom oak wood cabinetry and Miele appliances. The corner master bedroom suite features vibrant touches including a lavender Venetian chandelier that hangs above the bed and corner column painted by Brooklyn artist Nathan Green who incorporated mauve and rose colors inspired by the sunset views. The second bedroom features a library outfitted in a vibrant, peacock teal color paired with the warmth of gold, brass and wood accents. The residence also features an elegant entry foyer, and a powder room for guests, making this a truly exceptional home.
Fifteen Hudson Yards features 40,000 square feet of world-class amenities designed for residents of all ages and feature 360-degree views of the Hudson River, Statue of Liberty and city skyline. The entire 50th floor is dedicated to wellness, including an aquatics center with a 75-foot-long swimming pool, private spa with treatment rooms, beauty bar outfitted for hair and makeup services, fitness center designed by The Wright Fit, private studio for yoga and group classes, and a children’s imagination center.
The 51st floor is devoted to entertaining, leisure and cultural pursuits, featuring a club room, two corner private dining suites, sound-proof screening and performance room, golf club lounge, wine storage and tasting room, business center, and a collaborative work space. The top of the building encompasses a skytop entertaining suite with one-of-a-kind spaces for relaxing and dining. In addition to exceptional white-glove treatment, residents also enjoy exclusive benefits throughout Hudson Yards, from in-residence dining to personal shopping to onsite spa and beauty services.
