Name of New York project announced
The name of a major New York redevelopment project has been revealed: ‘Huys’. This also heralds the kick-off of the project PR campaign. The name, roughly pronounced as 'house', derives from 'Stadt Huys', the old Dutch word for City Hall. The first Stadt Huys in New York was built in 1642 by William Kieft, the Dutch Governor of the colony of Nieuw Nederland (New Netherlands).
The project is being developed and designed by prestigious developers with Dutch roots, including Piet Boon and Piet Oudolf. Huys boasts an unprecedented level of quality and detail. It exudes the enterprising, creative spirit that has its origins in the character and mindset of the Dutch pioneers who founded New York.
The announcement of the new name, Huys, was timed to coincide with the publication of the website and the unveiling of the facade and window signage. The latest news on the development can be followed on the website, starting from today. Please visit www.huys-nyc.com for more information.
