TISHMAN SPEYER ACQUIRES RIGHTS TO DEVELOP 2.85M SF TOWER FOR $200M IN NYC
NEW YORK CITY — Tishman Speyer has acquired the rights to develop a 2.85 million-square-foot tower in Midtown Manhattan’s Hudson Yards District through the completion of multiple transactions. The company purchased adjacent, undeveloped parcels from Manhattan-based Sherwood Equities for $200 million. The parcels total an entire block stretching from West 34th to West 35th streets and 10th Avenue to the to-be developed Hudson Park and Boulevard. The assemblage combined with the ability to purchase additional development rights available within Hudson Yards offers Tishman Speyer the opportunity to develop and construct a 2.85 million-square-foot tower in Manhattan’s expanded west side neighborhood and business district. The Hudson Yards district, which was rezoned in 2005, allows for 26 million square feet of office space, 20,000 new residential units, 2 million square feet of retail space and 3 million square feet of hotels.
