A section part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, Otis, has signed an agreement to supply elevator and escalator units for the new Hudson Yards development in Manhattan’s West Side in New York City.

Under the terms of the contract, Otis will provide 73 units for 30 Hudson Yards, a 92-storey, 2.6 million ft² tower, which is being developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group.

Being built over a functioning railroad system, the 28-acre Hudson Yards complex will offer more than 17 million ft² of office, retail, residential and hotel space.

The office tower would be supplied with 56 Otis Skyrise elevators, 11 NCE energy-efficient, environmentally responsible escalator systems, five hydraulic elevators, as well as one geared freight elevator, as part of the agreement.

Related Companies senior vice-president of construction Emad Lotfalla said: "Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States.
