New York City real estate developers and investors who are looking to take advantage of market trends and rising property values are developing the city with increasingly larger and more luxurious projects. At 25billion, the Hudson Yards redevelopment project is scheduled to become the largest residential and commercial development project in the history of the United States. The rapid and expansive development undertaken in the last few years has placed the mechanisms and tools responsible for the implementation and development of projects under pressure. Therefore, this study will review and clarigy the processes through which development of real property and urban public space occurs in New York City. Usign the Hudson Yards urban redevelopment project as a case study, a historiographical analysis and land use review as outlined in the New York City Zoning Resolution will be performed, after which, the paper will review the current tools and mechanisms that facilitate development. After a detailed examination of the historical and modern land use patterns of the Hudson Yards project,the paper goes on to criticize the planning process the management tools with which it is associated. Finally, after gathering substantial historiographical and contextual information about the project, attributes and levels for a potential "choice modeling" study as applied to Phase II of the Hudson Yards project will be considered and recommended.
