Hudson Yards erects West’s highest outdoor observation deck

Construction has begun on an outdoor observation deck that will jut out 65 ft. from 30 Hudson Yards in Manhattan at an elevation of 1,000 ft. According to Related Companies, developers of the luxe new neighborhood near the Javits Center, the attraction will be the highest outdoor human aerie in the Western Hemisphere and the fifth highest in the world.

“The Hudson Yards Observation Deck will serve as the new focal point for the west side skyline…whether you’re interested in a cocktail, a celebratory dinner, or just want to see what the city looks like from 1,000 feet up in the sky,” said Related Companies president L. Jay Cross.

The deck, which features a 10,000-sq.-ft. restaurant, bar, and event space run by the hospitality group Rhubarb, is scheduled to open in late 2019.

Hudson Yards will add more than 18 million sq. ft. of mixed-use GLA to the West Side, including more than 100 stores. Neiman Marcus will open its first New York City store there.
