How to Enable Success on a Mega-Project, a Case Study of Manhattan’s New Far West Side.
While each of our industry’s projects aim to improve a property, Mega-Projects aim to transform entire neighborhoods. Recently these mega-projects have sprouted up in many neighborhoods throughout NYC. None have been more influential on the city than the development of Manhattan’s New Far West Side. Starting at Penn Station and moving west to the Hudson River, new construction, enabled by the 2005 rezoning, would dwarf the entire downtown areas of most global cities. The development is the largest in NYC since Rockefeller Center. Major projects include (but are by no means limited to): Manhattan West, Hudson Yards, The Moynihan Train Hall, The 7 Line Extension, The Javits Center Expansion, and The Spiral. Our diverse set of speakers have been integral to the development of this area and will offer their insights into how this massive undertaking has been so successful.
