Dallas luxury boutique Forty Five Ten is hitting the Big Apple with a store that will open in Manhattan's Hudson Yards in March 2019.

Hudson Yards is a new neighborhood on Manhattan's West Side. It has 4,000 residences and more than 100 shops and restaurants by big names such as Thomas Keller, José Andrés, David Chang, Michael Lomonaco, Costas Spiliadis, rhubarb, and D&D London. There's also an Equinox hotel with more than 200 rooms; a new 750-seat public school; and 14 acres of public open space.

The Shops at Hudson Yards will also be home to New York City's first Neiman Marcus, plus brand names such as Cartier, Patek Philippe, Piaget, Rolex, Van Cleef, Zara, H&M, AG Jeans by Adriano Goldschmied, Aritzia, Athleta, Banana Republic, Coach, Lululemon, Stuart Weitzman, and Tory Burch. The beauty collection will include The Body Shop, Jo Malone, Kiehl’s, MAC, NYX, Origins, Sephora and Urban Decay.

Forty Five Ten creative VP and women's fashion director Taylor Tomasi Hill says that the complex allows Forty Five Ten to grow its New York market while keeping its signature personal approach.

This will be the sixth Forty Five Ten store, joining locations in Texas and California. It will be the second largest for the brand, following its flagship in downtown Dallas, which was completed in 2016 succeeding the brand’s acquisition by Headington Companies in 2014.

The store first opened on McKinney Avenue in 2000, but it was after its acquisition by Headington Companies in 2014 that the brand began to really expand its footprint with the opening of the downtown Dallas store. An emblem of the city's urban renaissance, the store has four stories, with a restaurant and lounge on the top floor.

Nick Wooster, Forty Five Ten's men's fashion director, himself lives at Hudson Yards. "As an innovative neighborhood that seamlessly blends work, culture, and play, Hudson Yards is the ideal location for a new Forty Five Ten boutique," he says. His commute promises to be very short.

Forty Five Ten is known for its luxury collections by iconic designers in women's, men's, home, and beauty. Also shoes. Don't forget the shoes.
