YIMBY previously revealed the office conversion and expansion coming to 161 Avenue of the Americas and 233 Spring Street, dubbed One SoHo Square, and the project — which was designed by Gensler — is now moving forward, with construction making visible progress. Stellar Management and Rockpoint Group are the developers.
Once the build-out is complete, the new One SoHo Square will total 768,000 square feet, and stand nineteen stories tall. Insides of both existing structures will be completely gutted, and the reformed and modernized floor-plates should prove attractive to technology firms searching for modernized spaces in the neighborhood, which is dominated by aging pre-war stock.
While most of the work at One SoHo Square is internal, the actual expansion is now taking shape, with steel outlining the conservative addition to 233 Spring Street. The more dramatic commercial penthouses will come later, and that portion of the development will stand taller than both existing structures, though it will not overwhelm 161 Avenue of the Americas, which is already attractive in its own right.
Stellar and Rockpoint have hired CBRE to market the space, and One SoHo Square is expected to re-open at the end of 2015.
