Who we are

New Hudson Facades started up in 2014 with way more than a startup project: we built the façades for three of the five buildings at Hudson Yards in New York for owner The Related Companies.

Since then, we’ve expanded to work with owners, developers, and other partners in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Denver, and beyond. We continually upgrade the technologies and equipment at our 180,000sf manufacturing facility where we produce 1M sf of curtainwall each year.

Unchanged from our startup days to today is our belief in the creative power of our people and the prerogative of performance. One drives the other—we never compromise on how much we will invest in getting both exactly right.
