Our Move to Hudson Yards: Where Innovation Can Thrive


NEW YORK, May 3, 2016 – In an exciting new development for the firm, Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy LLP plans to relocate its NY office to 55 Hudson Yards, in the up-and-coming Hudson Yards development.

As noted in the press release issued by Related Companies, the developers of Hudson Yards, the anticipated LEED Gold, 51-story, 1.3 million gross square foot building was designed by acclaimed global architect A. Eugene Kohn of Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and is expected to open in 2018. The design of 55 Hudson Yards is defined by its indoor-outdoor spaces, early modernism-inspired exterior design, and exceptionally efficient interior space planning. It is one of the few office buildings in the entire city that opens directly onto a park and sits adjacent to a No. 7 Subway station which connects to every other major subway line as well as Grand Central Station. Penn Station is also less than a ten-minute walk away. The interior planning of the building was conceived after extensive study of the space needs of professional service, financial, creative and technology firms.

Milbank Chairman Scott Edelman says, “Milbank continues to be in a period of extraordinarily successful development and change. At Hudson Yards, we look forward to creating an office space for the firm’s exciting future: a space which will foster our collaborative, energetic and inclusive culture. We are thrilled to become part of what promises to be an exciting new community in New York City,” he added.

Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the nation’s history. The site itself will include 17 million square feet of commercial and residential space; more than 100 shops and restaurants, including New York City’s first Neiman Marcus and signature restaurants by Chefs Thomas Keller, José Andrés and Costas Spiliadis; approximately 4,000 residences; The Shed, a new center for artistic invention; 14-acres of public open space; a new 750-seat public school and a 200-room Equinox® branded luxury hotel – all offering unparalleled amenities for residents, employees and guests.
