AMAG selected for Hudson Yards
TORRANCE, Calif.—Hudson Yards has selected AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Enterprise v7.0.1 Card Access Control System to secure 10 Hudson Yards in New York City, the first office tower under construction in the development.
Hudson Yards will ultimately include more than 17 million square feet of commercial and residential space when completed and be the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center, according to AMAG. AMAG Technology is a security management solution provider that specializes in unified access control, IP video and intrusion management solutions for the commercial and government markets.
AMAG’s Symmetry access control system will include card access readers, and will integrate with Genetec’s video management system, Building Intelligence’s visitor management system and Schindler elevators to provide destination dispatch.
Symmetry software will act as the central management system for all these security functions, increasing efficiency and providing faster response to incidents. Construction on the 52-story building began in December 2012 and is scheduled for completion in 2015.
Bill Kotwicki, AMAG Technology, Northeast regional sales manager, said in a prepared statement: “Symmetry’s robust feature set will control access and continuously monitor all activity in the busiest part of the building. Integrating with Schindler elevators and Genetec video will optimize the efficiency of this state-of-the-art, security management system, securing its diverse population, unique assets and complex building requirements.”
Coach, L’Oréal and SAP will occupy office space in the building, giving the building world-class fashion, technology and beauty brands, and a Fairway Market at ground level will bring a much-needed amenity to the neighborhood. The building will also include a 60-foot passageway that connects with the celebrated High Line Park and the public plaza.
Johnson Controls is the installing integrator on the project.
