Hudson Yards NYC switchable Smart Glass project update

Smartglass International are happy to announce that the first two phases for the Equinox Hotel project at 35 Hudson yards in New York City are now complete. After announcing the Hudson Yards project in September 2018, we have been working closely with our installer customer,  Jerome Glassof New York, to adhere to very tight deadlines.

The architectural gem that is 35 Hudson Yard, when complete, will rise more than 1000 ft dominating the New York skyline. Designed by David Childs of SOM, the tower will be home to the 200 room Equinox Hotel. As the first of its kind, the Equinox Hotel focuses on combining high-end fitness with luxury hospitality.

Hudson Yard New York


It is no surprise that Equinox has chosen the new Hudson Yards development for their first hotel. Hudson Yards is rapidly becoming known as the ‘New Heart of New York’. Designed to bring people together to work, live and experience the many chef-driven restaurants and the world’s most iconic brands. It will include thousands of residences, office, restaurants and retail space along with a public school and 14 acres of parks and open spaces.

Smartglass International is proud to be supplying our UL approved Switchable Privacy Smartglassfor this project. Installation has already begun in several floors of the new Equinox Hotel, with more roll-out due for installation early this year. After working hard with our installer, Jerome Glass of New York, we are on schedule to complete this project in accordance with the clients’ expectations.

The use of switchable glass in fitness facilities and hotels is becoming increasingly popular, due to it being an aesthetically pleasing and hygienic solution for window shading. We are looking forward to the first guests experiencing the hotel and the wide variety of health and fitness facilities available to them.

Smartglass International was chosen for the project due the hands on service and expertise in the manufacturing and supply of Switchable Privacy Glass across the globe as well as our connection to New York with our New York office. Smartglass International is recognised as a market leader in switchable glass with our superior product, competitive pricing and ability to overcome all architectural challenges.
