Neiman Marcus' Hudson Yards store, which closed in 2020, has drawn interest as office space

Hudson Yards’ Former Neiman Marcus Finds Takers as Office Space 

Related Cos. has found potential tenants for the former Manhattan home of Neiman Marcus at Hudson Yards, which is being converted into offices after the luxury retailer shuttered the store amid the pandemic in 2020, Bloomberg News reported.  

Although the widespread embrace of hybrid work has cast a cloud over the future of offices, there’s plenty of demand at Hudson Yards, particularly from firms that have space there and want to expand, Jeff Blau, Related’s chief executive officer, said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s David Westin on “Wall Street Week.”  

The interest in the former Neiman store comes as more Manhattan companies plan to bring workers back this month, according to Blau. 

“Companies are thinking forward beyond that full return to the office, and making the decision to take even more space,” he said. “We’re feeling pretty optimistic about the office side.”
