Hudson Yards: A connected neighborhood grows in Manhattan

Read the full post in GreenBiz.

The much-ballyhooed Hudson Yards project in New York isn’t just remarkable for being the largest private real estate development in U.S. history, it’s also the nation’s first “Quantified Community” — one in which data will be collected about almost every physical and environmental nuance of the neighborhood.

The information measured by sensors and other instruments installed throughout the community — which will cost $20 billion to build — will be used for everything from controlling air quality to predicting traffic flow to modeling energy production and usage. The infrastructure is being designed by New York University’s Center for Urban Science and Progress along with the developers Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group.
