NYU Dormitory

Housing for Institutions

Hudson has extensive experience helping institutions satisfy their housing needs. We are sensitive to the unique goals and decision-making processes of institutions and have demonstrated our ability to work effectively with the multi-disciplinary teams that are often charged with capital project planning and implementation. Hudson’s close management of the details of design and construction allows us to ensure that the intentions of the institutional client are carried out effectively at each stage of the project. We try to bring our private sector efficiency to bear on the problems faced by institutions in formulating realistic and cost sensitive solutions that yield well designed and constructed new housing for their various constituents.

  • Founders’ Hall, a new Student Dormitory for New York University at 120 East 12th Street in Manhattan, was completed by Hudson in December 2008 for lease by New York University. The 26-story building provides 212 singles and suites that house over 700 first-year students as well as four faculty apartments and ground floor offices for residential life services. The building includes a sophisticated building management system that allows University staff to optimize energy usage and closely manage operations and maintenance needs. Hudson acquired the site, entered into an agreement with NYU, and worked closely with the University’s planning, construction, and operations staff to design and build a cost-effective project that met NYU’s specific needs on budget and on schedule. Full-time students began occupancy in August 2009 and NYU purchased the building.
  • Hudson and its partner, The Related Companies, Inc., have developed multiple buildings for Faculty and Staff Housing at Riverwalk on Roosevelt Island, as part of a nine-building planned community across the river from Manhattan’s Upper East Side medical district. Building on this convenient location and its unique small-town feel, Hudson has worked with medical and educational institutions seeking high-quality, cost-effective living opportunities for faculty and staff in a new campus-like community with amenities like fitness centers, children’s playrooms, open space, daycare, and neighborhood retail services. Several institutions have participated:
    • To help the College recruit new faculty and postdoctoral fellows as part of its strategic plan, Hudson created 136 units of housing for Weil Cornell Medical College at 465 Main Street and 88 additional units at 455 Main Street.
    • Next door at 475 Main Street, Hudson developed 256 units of staff housing for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). MSK bought its building and rents units directly to its employees.
    • At 425 Main Street, Hudson developed a 230-unit market rate condominium that included 96 units for MSK and another 48 units of faculty housing for New York University.
