Hudson Yards – the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States, as well as the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center – opens March 15th, 2019.

Hudson Yards is a multi-billion dollar complex that covers an entire avenue and stretches four city blocks and represents a new neighborhood on Manhattan’s West Side (at the end of the High Line, which wraps around it). The unprecedented mixed-use development consists of more than 100 shops and restaurants (including New York City’s first Neiman Marcus), 18 million square feet of commercial space, 4,000 state-of-the-art modern residences, 14 acres of open space, a 750-seat public school, and the world’s first Equinox hotel.

Watches of Switzerland is situated in a 6,500 square foot prime ground floor location, flanked by Rolex and Patek Philippe in-store boutiques, at 20 Hudson Yards, between the Highline and Plaza entrances, and will be open for business beginning next Friday, March 15th.
