HSBC Unveils Cutting-Edge US Headquarters in Hudson Yards, Pioneering the Future Workforce in New York City

HSBC today inaugurated its new U.S. headquarters at The Spiral, a landmark office building in New York City’s Hudson Yards neighborhood, marking its largest U.S. relocation to date. This move, along with investments in other offices nationwide, underscores HSBC’s commitment to New York City and its U.S. operations as a leading international bank. The innovative design of the Hudson Yards office space highlights HSBC’s forward-thinking approach to reshaping the future of work, fostering an empowering environment for clients and colleagues.

“HSBC’s new headquarters symbolizes our deep commitment to the future of New York City, further cementing the city’s position as the financial capital of the world.”

Several distinguished guests participated in the grand opening ceremony, including New York City Mayor Eric Adams, Former Mayor and Bloomberg L.P. Co-Founder Michael R. Bloomberg, Partnership for New York City President and CEO Kathryn Wylde, and Architect Bjarke Ingels, founder of Bjarke Ingels Group. HSBC Group Chairman Mark Tucker and U.S. and Americas CEO Michael Roberts led the event, sharing remarks. As part of the ceremony, guests placed artifacts unique and meaningful to HSBC into a time capsule, to be reopened in 40 years to mark the Bank’s bicentennial.

“Our new U.S. headquarters in the heart of one of the world’s financial capitals symbolizes our commitment to our clients and this critical market,” said HSBC Group Chairman Mark Tucker. “We remain focused on connecting our clients in the U.S. to opportunities overseas and those around the world to the U.S.”

“New York City isn’t just coming back — we are back. Under our administration, we have set the record for the highest number of total jobs in our city’s history, and we just hit another milestone with the most private-sector jobs ever in New York. Thanks to investments like HSBC’s in New York City today, we are laying the foundation for economic growth in the decades to come,” said Mayor Eric Adams. “HSBC’s new headquarters represents a deep commitment to the future of New York City and further cements our city’s position as the financial capital of the world.”

Developed by Tishman Speyer and designed by Bjarke Ingels Group in collaboration with Adamson Associates and structural engineer WSP Cantor Seinuk, The Spiral is a 66-story office tower in Hudson Yards that opened in 2023. The Spiral visually extends the landscape of the nearby High Line Park up and around the building’s exterior, offering access to green outdoor terraces from each of the 66 stories. Its distinctive features, including outdoor terraces with changing plant species and ample natural light, enhance the workplace experience, fostering employee collaboration, creativity, and wellbeing.

“Today marks an exciting milestone for HSBC, the result of years of planning, refining, and dedication driven by our vision to reimagine our workplace as an environment that inspires our colleagues to serve our clients with unparalleled excellence and expertise,” said Michael Roberts, HSBC CEO U.S. and Americas. “Our nearly 150-year history in the U.S. is stronger than ever, and our new headquarters in New York City stands as a testament to our forward-looking vision for the future.”

The building incorporates various environmentally friendly features, including 13,000 square feet of outdoor space and a water management system that collects and redistributes overflow rainwater through tiered landscaping, aligning with HSBC’s sustainability goals. The tower was designed with adaptable infrastructure to accommodate changing needs and technology advancements over time, complementing HSBC’s forward-looking vision of the workplace. M Moser Associates designed HSBC’s interior office space to include environmental, inclusive, and smart features that align with HSBC’s sustainability and inclusion goals.

Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) provided project development and brokerage services and continues to offer integrated facilities management and experience management. The Spiral is pursuing LEED Silver certification.
