Henry Hall making some noise on West Side
Imperial Companies, in partnership with the San Francisco based Shorenstein family, announced the official start of leasing at Henry Hall, an hip and posh rental in the Hudson Yards.

“Every space, however unique, public or private, is considered an essential part of the Henry Hall story. They become a defining element of the residential experience,” said Eric Birnbaum, Co-Founder and Partner at Imperial Companies.
“So many people would love to live in their favorite hotel or have the City’s newest restaurant be just downstairs – Henry Hall makes that a reality.”
Developed by Imperial Companies, on behalf of the joint venture partnership with Shorenstein, and located at 515 West 38th Street, the site of the former Legacy Recording Studio, the 33-story building offers 225 studios, one and two bedroom residences.
