In a special edition of the Here & Now podcast, host Jeremy Hobson takes us on a tour of the largest private real estate development in U.S. history. When it's finished, the Hudson Yards project on New York City's West Side will include a mix of skyscrapers, public spaces, company headquarters, apartments and condos, a large retail complex and a performing arts center. The total cost? $25 billion.

"I think the dream is to create a new urban environment, the likes of which we haven’t seen before, that's responsive to the 21st century," says Jay Cross, who heads up Hudson Yards for the developer, Related Companies.
