West Side Story
Tuesday, Apr 1, 2014
Related and Oxford are creating a 21st century, live-work-play neighborhood at Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s west side. Valued at $20 billion and covering 17 million square feet, it will be the largest private mixed used development in the US.
A key attribute of the first phase of development is a $100 million micro-grid comprising 13.2MW of cogen, a thermal and fiber loop network interconnecting five discrete buildings, and an engineering command center to deploy engineering and energy management services and demand response activities neighborhood wide. Related did not begin Hudson Yards with the goal of creating Manhattan’s first multi-tenant micro-grid, but instead, the design evolved out of the mutual, if competing, goals of “tenant control” and “efficiency through shared infrastructure”, along with a new market priority for resilience after Sandy.
