Property Description

Cushman & Wakefield has been retained on an exclusive basis to market for sale one of the last
remaining block-through development parcels in Hudson Yards located at 485 Ninth Avenue. The site is situated with over 367’ of valuable retail frontage along Ninth Avenue, West 37th and West 38th Streets. Given its position adjacent to Dyer Avenue, the site features coveted light & air exposure on all four sides offering 360 degree, panoramic views. The buildings on the lot have already been demolished and 485 Ninth Avenue will be delivered vacant allowing prospective developers the opportunity to commence construction immediately.

Per zoning regulations, 485 Ninth Avenue can support the development of up to approximately 185,000 square feet as-of-right (inclusive of Lot 31 Air Rights & 45,791 SF of Pending Air Rights). An additional 135,000 square feet of air rights are readily available for purchase above Dyer Avenue that are controlled by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.The incorporation of any or all of these additional air rights requires a zoning variance from the BSA. Upon a successful application, developers could potentially increase the development project up to a maximum 320,000 square feet while also significantly blending down their cost basis for the land.

The west side of Manhattan is quickly maturing into a world-class, mixed-use community with over 25 million square feet of premier office and residential towers anticipated to be delivered in the next five years through projects including Hudson Yards and Manhattan West. The destination provides residents with convenient access to retail, transportation, leading office buildings, and night life. Commitments from reputable corporations for over 7 million square feet of office space, with several million square feet in the pipeline, has resulted in unprecedented demand for full-service, residential projects. 485 Ninth Avenue represents an ideal opportunity for developers to capitalize on the insatiable growth of the City’s far west side.
