The Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project is a New York City Department of City Planning and Metropolitan Transportation Authority proposal to encourage business development on Manhattan's far West Side along the Hudson River.

The stadium would have also been used for the 2012 Summer Olympics, had New York been selected to host, although stadium project failed to receive state approval. The Hudson Yards rezoning action was adopted by the New York City Council in January 2005.
