Get ready to be wowed.
Related has perfected its chops since it hosted an opening gala at the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle on Feb. 4, 2004.
Next week, on Thursday, March 14, Related will present another spectacular opening night — for Hudson Yards at what has been called the “Time Warner Center on steroids.” It’s where Time Warner, now WarnerMedia, is also moving.
Related and partner Oxford Properties have thoughtfully crafted the new shopping and dining experiences, which open to the public the next morning, on March 15. It’s a stylish stack of curated experiences tucked into a master-planned village of skyscrapers.
There are cozy corridors and elegant escalators, upscale shops and ritzy restaurants, the only NYC-area Neiman Marcus and plenty of sure-to-become foodie-favorite markets.
Its culture-filled Shed, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, has a sliding cocoon-like roof and sides softened with off-white, angled poofs.
The Vessel, meanwhile, is truly an instant icon and so much nicer than the subway-like stairways shown at its reveal in September 2016. Thomas Heatherwick has created Instagram-worthy exterior undersides polished to a mirror-like copper sheen contrasted with black and red details on the interconnected staircases.
Its 2,500 steps and 80 landings will attract crowds of climbers and onlookers.
There’s an elevator for those who can’t make the climb — or just want a ride down. Plan to linger and take in the view, angles and architecture of Hudson Yards from this centerpiece that stretches from 50 square feet at its base to 150 square feet at the 150-foot-high top, and is right outside the shop-stuffed podium.
Filled with jewelry, apparel and makeup stores, it also has restaurants on the top floor that include outdoor terraces. The entire tony craziness is connected to, and flanked by, Coach’s new offices at 10 Hudson Yards on the northwest corner of West 30th Street and 30 Hudson Yards on the southwest corner of West 33rd Street. Both are designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox.
Peek into 30 Hudson Yard’s 36-foot-high lobby and prepare to say “wow” when you see the huge, gray granite blocks and backlit marble inserts. It will be home to WarnerMedia as it says “sayonara” to its former namesake Time Warner Center — which will be renamed Deutsche Bank Center. Just a few floors are left here — at $150 a square foot.
Its 1,296-foot-high skyscraping top is cut by the “wing” that will soon host the highest and newest outdoor city observatory.
Nearby are the 92-story condo residences and Equinox Hotel at 35 Hudson Yards, which was designed by David Childs/SOM, along with the stunning quatrefoil columns of 15 Hudson Yards, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group, which houses condos and rentals.
Along West 34th Street, the office tower designed by Foster + Partners at 50 Hudson Yards will be anchored by BlackRock. The Post’s Steve Cuozzo reported that the neighboring KPF-designed 55 Hudson Yards, which is majority-owned by Mitsui Fudosan, may soon host Apple’s offices. There’s plenty more and worth a ride to the end of the No. 7 to check it out.
Undie maker and casual outerwear company HanesBrands is consolidating and expanding at 260 Madison Ave. to occupy 96,398 square feet.
The space includes the entire seventh floor of 36,293 square feet, which had an asking rent in the high $60s per square foot.
Employees will move to 260 Madison from its satellite offices at 16 E. 34th St. later this fall.
Mitchell Konsker of JLL and Robert Gallucci of Colliers repped HanesBrands.
CBRE’s Peter Turchin, Gregg Rothkin, Brett Shannon, Tim Freydberg and Jared London repped the Sapir Organization ownership, bringing the building to 100 percent occupancy.
Poggenpohl will land its kitchenwares at 138 Greene St.
The former B&B Italia space has 6,050 square feet for the showroom. Of that, 3,200 square feet are on the ground floor — which has a 15-foot-6-inch-high ceiling.
Michael Glanzberg and Margie Sarway of Sinvin represented both the tenant and the Ascot Properties’ retail condominium owner. The asking rent was $985,000 per year for the space expected to open this fall.
