The Western Rail Yards is the second phase of the Hudson Yards development to be complete in 2024. The Western Rail Yards will consist of a 5.7-million-square-foot mixed-use development, incorporating several residential towers, an office complex and a school serving K-8th grade students. The Western Rail Yards is located at W 30th Street to W 33rd Street between 11th Avenue and 12th Avenue. The High Line elevated park frames The Western Rail Yards and terminates at 34th Street. This is the only section of the High Line to descend to street level, where pedestrians have easy access to ground transportation and the no. 7 subway station.

To complete the 28-acre Hudson Yards development, two “platforms” must be constructed to bridge over 30 active Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) train tracks, three subsurface rail tunnels utilized by Amtrak and New Jersey Transit and a fourth passageway, the Gateway tunnel, currently under construction. The finished buildings will extend through the platform and rise above. The platforms will cover approximately three quarters of the Eastern and Western Rail Yards.

Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States and the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center. When complete in 2025, 125,000 people a day will work in, visit or call Hudson Yards their home.
