Related’s mixed-use development of luxury offerings officially opens today, and celebrated its debut last night with a massive party spanning the new shopping mall, the Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards.
The design industry has poured years of hard work into Hudson Yards, and the development’s star talents turned out to celebrate the grand finale of the long-awaited project.

The Snarkitecture principals toasted their new Snark Park, plus their interiors for fashion retailer Forty Five Ten’s store. The sprawling Mercado food hall was a collaboration between the New York–based firm ICRAVE and Barcelona’s Capella Garcia Arquitectura, while CetraRuddy designed the interiors for the Queensyard restaurant.
