Developed by Related Management, this multi-building complex on Manhattan's far West Side is not yet complete but is already providing valuable feedback about its many green practices and design features.

Join us to hear from three senior officials from Related Companies detail the challenges, breakthroughs and long term vision of this innovative project in a unique area of Manhattan.

Charlotte Matthews, VP of Sustainability at Related, will discuss several features and the challenges they presented, including the microgrid, food waste management (with special pneumatic handling equipment) and the requirement that tenants install energy-efficient fitouts.

Frank Norcross, VP for Hudson Yards Energy will describe the energy-related issues discovered by tracking the performance of various building systems, and the value and importance of continuous commissioning of those systems during the first year of operation.

Fred Knapp, Senior VP of Hudson Yards Asset Management will be looking ahead to the completion of the project and the ongoing operation and maintenance of the buildings, and speak about the commissioning and handover strategy, green cleaning and tenant engagement -- all critical factors in sustaining high performance.
