Apple Is Seriously Considering Taking Space At 55 Hudson Yards
Hudson Yards is apparently close to locking down yet another big-name tenant.
Apple is talking about leasing 60K SF at 55 Hudson Yards, the New York Post reports. The deal isn’t signed, but the company is in late-stage talks for the lease. What’s more, Apple may also take a “large” retail space somewhere in Hudson Yards.
The building is being developed by Related, Oxford Properties and majority stakeholder Mitsui Fudosan. Tenants there include Third Point, an $18B hedge fund run by Dan Loeb, Mount Sinai Medical Center and Steve Cohen’s Point72. The building’s opening is one of several due at the complex this year.
Apple signed a 45K SF office lease on Fifth Avenue near Union Square in 2011, although it's unclear whether this new deal would be a relocation or offices for a new division.
The apartment building 15 Hudson Yards is welcoming its first residents. The Public Square and Gardens and Hudson Yards' art centerpiece, the Vessel, are set to open in March.
Also this year, sales are due to launch at the 35 Hudson Yards condo building, the Equinox Hotel is set to open and office tenants will start moving into 30 Hudson Yards. Law firm Debevoise & Plimpton is also planning on moving to 50 Hudson Yards, although that building is still three years away.
